Poulter angry after Lytham woe
Ian Poulter during his third round 73 at Royal Lytham
Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter vented his Open frustration by Tweeting an expletive and declaring himself sick after a third-round 73 dropped him back to three-over at Royal Lytham.
The Englishman stomped off the 18th green declining requests for interviews but within the hour he had taken to the social network to offer his thoughts.
"So p***** off right now it's crazy, 2 fairway bunkers in 54 holes & I'm over par," the world number 28 wrote. "It makes me want to puke. Padded cell required please."
The 36-year-old began the day level par - 10 shots off the lead - and went to the turn in one under after a birdie at the ninth.
He gave that back at the next but immediately birdied the 11th only to fall apart with two double-bogey sixes at the 15th and 17th holes.
