Ian Poulter: "US Opens kick you in the nuts every 20 minutes!"

Ian Poulter has made it no secret in the past of his dislike for a US Open venue. You only need to see a picture of the state of his locker at Shinnecock Hills in 2018 to understand just how much he loathes a USGA setup. 

Unfortunately for the European Ryder Cup hero, the story was no different at Winged Foot this week as Poulter bowed out of the second major of the year on 12-over par following rounds of 75 and 77.

Poulter certainly wanted his social media following to know how he felt about his showing last night. 

"As I trudge back to my car, I don't enjoy playing US Opens at all... they're a misery," said Poulter on his Instagram Story.

"Don't know really what else to tell you. I don't enjoy them. They're actually a pain in the arse. 



"You feel like you get kicked in the nuts every 20 minutes, maybe 25 minutes. Then when they've just healed you get another boot in the nuts.

"Then you wait another 20 minutes and just when they're feeling alright you get another toe punt right in the nuts again!

"They're a misery. Just a misery."

He then added while chatting to Henrik Stenson on his Instagram Story: "They're miserable. It's not like I've got a TV commercial on Monday afternoon so now I've got to wait around in New York all weekend.

"They're the best missed cuts ever they are. TV commercial Monday, oh and then hang around Saturday and Sunday twiddling your thumbs doing absolutely sweet Fanny Adams."
