    A biography of one of the most flamboyant and outspoken voices in professional golf

    Charting Poulter's life from when he first picked up a golf club at the age of seven and hit the ball 140 yards to his triumphant charge in the 2012 Ryder Cup, this is a story every golf fan will want to read. Poulter has earned his success the hard way and the book details how he grafted to become a professional golfer, having to pay to play at the golf club that employed him. It details his struggle to turn professional in 1994 before his obvious talent saw him join the European Tour in 2000, where he won Rookie of the Year. Today, Poulter is a fixture in the world's top 15 players, a friend and neighbor of Tiger Woods in Florida, and unmissable on the course with his own range of garish clothing. The book looks at all the stories, such as why he wore an Arsenal shirt at the Abu Dhabi Championship in 2006 and how he almost came to blows with Colin Montgomery in a restaurant. Of course, it also looks closely at all Poulter's golfing achievements. Ranked fourth in the World Golf Rankings in 2010, he is a stalwart of the European Ryder Cup team, twice victor in the World Golf Championship Matchplay Tournament, and a winner of numerous European and PGA Tour events. Together, all these aspects create a biography that is fascinating, revealing, and honest¬ómuch like Ian Poulter himself.
