PGA TOUR star and Ryder Cup stalwart Ian Poulter discusses the importance of spending quality time with his family amidst a busy schedule.
Ranked as high as No. 5 in the Official World Golf Rankings’ in 2010, it’s no wonder this charismatic Tour pro has nearly one million Twitter followers. The flashy dresser who always dons sunglasses on the course also happens to be a family man, Arsenal soccer fan, has a huge car collection, and is a season-ticket holder to the Orlando Magic basketball team.
He’s very proud of several charities in which he is actively involved, including Dreamflight for seriously ill and disabled children, Willow Foundation that provides special days to 16-to-40-year-olds with life-threatening conditions, and the Ian Poulter Invitational for UK junior golfers. He’s seemingly a winner at everything he does, with the exception that he lost to Jimmy Fallon playing the Tiger Woods Wii game on Fallon’s late-night TV show.
