There’s been a controversial incident at the Scottish Open between Ian Pouter and a Marshall.

News article here: Ian Poulter branded 'an a---hole' by Scottish Open golf volunteer marshal Quintin Jardine after ball row

Marshall’s blog here: Ian Poulter is an arsehole

Now Pouter’s reply:

Reading both accounts I think they both have blood on their hands.

On Poulter’s instagram post there were commenters who said they were present and it wasn’t what he said but how he said it. Similarly, the Marshall’s expletive laden complaint reeks of smugness.

I haven’t seen any footage of it. Comments?

Sounds like it’s up to interpretation but ultimately they both could have behaved better. Maybe.

Dont like him, never liked him, hope he shoots a 91 in all his Ryder Cup matches, and steps in dog S on 18 that ends up in the trunk of his car

drama........................:rolleyes:

It's not a Marshall's responsibility to find errant shots, right?
I don't know about the Scottish Open but on the PGA Tour one of a marshal's duties is to locate and protect errant golf balls.

I really wish I had a slot in the Open Championship Challenge for Poulter! The marshal/forecaddie needed to do his job. Evidently, he either had some previous angst against Poulter or was just had an arrogance where he thought himself above doing his job. Poulter knew the rule. The marshal/forecaddie was NOT a Rules Official. Hoping this fires up Poulter and he wins The Open Championship going away!!
