“Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter is rubbing salt into American wounds by setting their players a special 'tee-ser' at the World Golf Championship. Poulter lived up to his reputation as the joker in the pack by getting a large batch of tees made up, each one imprinted with the final score from Oakland Hills. He then distributed a few to his victorious team-mates, asking them to drop the pegs into the tee boxes in Ireland. "If any of the US boys pick up the tees, they are certain to get the point!" said Poulter, who just missed out on qualifying for the WGC-Amex event. Poulter insisted the jape was not meant to be taken seriously. “It’s not a case of trying to rub the American boys' noses in it or gloating - OK it could be gloating - but it's just a bit of fun.”They used to beat us hands down and it is worth celebrating that the wheel has turned." Poulter just missed out on playing in the WGC after finishing 21st in the European Order of Merit. The top 20 qualified. But aside from Colin Montgomerie, the rest of the successful European team are all at Mount Juliet, with instructions to get up to mischief. "I gave the boys a pile of tees before they left," Poulter said “and told them to drop a fistful into the tee boxes!" You can bet your bottom dollar the Americans will find it really amusing.”
