Flashback: Poulter Mooching A Ride On Air Tiger

Since these two are playing tomorrow in the morning foursomes with Steve Stricker and Justin Rose along for the ride, I thought back to Derek Lawrenson's March item on Hank Haney's The Big Miss:

The Poulter tittle-tattle from Haney’s book, The Big Miss, dates back to before the 2007 US Open, when both played a practice round at Oakmont.

‘How are we getting home?’ asked Poulter of his Orlando neighbour, fully aware Woods had a private jet ready to go.

No invitation was forthcoming but Poulter showed up at the airport anyway, and got his ride home.

On the plane, Woods texted Haney: ‘Can you believe how this dick mooched a ride on my plane home?’

Rather sensibly, Poulter had no intention of getting involved when I caught up with him yesterday.

‘The book has nothing to do with me and I have no interest in commenting on it,’ he said.
