Yesterday came the sad news that some scoundrel had absconded with Ian Poulter's prized driver. The revelation was so devastating, in fact, that Poulter had to withdraw from the Singapore Open, presumably because he was in mourning.
Forget for the moment that as one of the world's best players, Poulter has a sponsorship deal. This means that everything -- clothes, absurd couture, GOLF CLUBS -- is free.
But you see, this driver was very special to Poulter, and even though he had hoped to improve his world ranking this week, he wasn't willing to take a chance with just 13 clubs in his bag.
Of course, he would've had to play no more than one round like that since Cobra, the company who provides him with his sticks, would've overnighted him a replacement driver. But none of that matters because Poulter only has eyes for one Cobra Speed Pro.
