Potentially the most interesting pairing in the third round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral is Ian Poulter and Hideki Matsuyama (11:15 a.m. EST), based on Poulter's Tweets about an apparent Matsuyama incident on the 13th green in round two.
Poulter tweeted that Matsuyama, the 22-year-old from Japan, took a gouge out of the green with his putter and that it required an official to come repair it. Let Poulter tell the story:
playing with Matsuyama tomo. He buried his putter in the 13th green 5 ft from the hole, Referee had to repair the crater. Because he didn't.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) March 8, 2014
Why should Matsuyama leave a crater in the green for others to putt over, or have to call a referee to repair the damage. Idiot.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) March 8, 2014
Im no saint & first to say. But that was disgusting. I wouldn't bury a putter in a green 5 ft from a hole & have players behind deal with it— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) March 8, 2014
I can't wait to. @Lainger66 are you going to speak to him like a man or just blast him on twitter like all the other keyboard warriors?"— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) March 8, 2014
