Ian Poulter has opened up on just how difficult it is to forge a career on the PGA Tour and how talking to people when things get challenging out there can make all the difference in the world.
European Ryder Cup legend Poulter, 46, was giving advice to juniors during an interview with golf correspondent Alexandra O'Laughlin at the Junior Invitational at Sage Valley.
"It's not all rosey out in the real world of trying to play golf for a living," said Poulter, who has amassed three wins on the PGA Tour.
"It doesn't come easy. We've seen some great players that find it difficult. They find it difficult away from home, difficult to travel.
"Mental health is an issue and I'll quite happily say that I've had times when I've had to go and talk to people that are very close to me to just express myself and tell them what's going on because it's tough."
