Poulter calls Matsuyama an 'idiot,' paired with him Saturday

By John Strege

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:
