Return Saudi cash to sender, Postie?


IF a golfer shoots 78 in the opening round of a regular European Tour event – sorry, DP World event – he is unlikely to get a mention in any form of media.

But Ian Poulter’s dismal score at the Scottish Open on Thursday was headline news because the LIV Golf rebel had taken legal action to participat­e in the tournament.

And Poulter is going to have to get used to being pilloried. Quite simply, Poulter – known as The Postman – has sold the popularity he accrued through years of Ryder Cup heroics for bucketload­s of Saudi cash.

There may come a time – if he is cold-shouldered at The Open, for example – when he will wonder if it was worth it.
