Poulter denies swearing at marshal during Scottish Open

STV News - Edinburgh & East Scotland - Sun, 07/15/2018 - 20:02

Ian Poulter has denied swearing at a marshal during the Scottish Open at Gullane after crime author Quintin Jardine wrote a letter of complaint about the golfer.

The author is also a member at host course Gullane and was acting as a course marshal on Saturday. Jardine was on hand when Poulter hit a wayward drive on the opening hole.

When the English golfer arrived to find his ball, Jardine claims that he swore repeatedly and acted aggressively.

In a letter to the European Tour tournament director, Jardine said that Poulter used "a shower of expletives", asking where his ball was. He said that the golfer had been "an a*******" but that he didn't want Poulter fined.

"I told him and said that I had not ventured into the bush for fear of standing on it," Jardine wrote. "I wasn't expecting thanks, but I wasn't expecting aggression either.

"He told me in essence that I should have, his reasoning being that if I stood on the ball it was a free drop, whereas if he did it was a penalty.

"Basically I take no s*** from no man. Industrial language doesn't bother me, but truculent aggression does.

"I'm not asking for him to be fined, because I don't see the point of that. However I would like him to be reminded that even though most of the world knows you're an a*******, there's no need to go proving it to the rest.

"I will take his apology as read, but if he wants to make it in person, I'm not hard to find in Gullane."

In response, Poulter took to social media to deny that he had sworn at Jardine and to give his version of events.

"Extremely sad to see a marshall has wrote in and complained about me aiming abuse at him on the first hole," he tweeted.

"I asked if he found my ball and his response was "it's in there somewhere" "I didn't want to step on it" I replied "if you stand on it I can replace it without penalty but if I stand on it I will get penalized"

"Venting at myself like I do at times, I said a couple of choice words aimed at myself. I do not abuse Marshall's. I may have done in my early years.

"After I played my shot I said to the Marshall "I'm not frustrated at you I just want you to know the rule incase you come across the situation again. He said ok thanks."
