In both categories, in April, Poulter missed the cut in the Valero Texas Open in April. The American Brian Gay, who was also one of the participants in the VTO, was playing on a medical exemption even after suffering from the problem of back, then notified officials of a discrepancy in the system of points structure, which is used for the players, who are competing in that category.
Poulter made the most of his amnesty by scoring the second position in the Players Championship on his next start and since then, he has not missed a halfway cut, finishing 22nd at Quail Hollow and at Royal Birkdale finishing 14th in the Open. Read More

Poulter revealed the new way of dealing with the trolls is blocking them.
He says blocking the user to be his fresh strategy of dealing with trolls. Why Poulter has opted this way, there is a reason behind, the player used to get into tussles on twitter with users who would insult him or spout criticisms behind the keyboard. To deal with this, the player opted out a different approach to deal with these instances.
Poulter said, “I have chosen to really stop involving myself with the negative comments coming in on my account. I have stopped reading and getting involved. I’m not reacting, what I do is immediately blocking the negative comments that come in. I have chosen not to react to those comments anymore. Instead of reacting to those, I prefer to just block the account. By doing so, I am feeling quite happy. An expression of feeling is the right of everyone and each individual is free to say what they want to say. Choosing this way of reaction, I am not restricting anyone to read my tweet. But, it is my choice that I should allow to read my tweet. And by blocking the account I am able to do so.” He said. Read More
