Ian Poulter confirms: Yes, it's true, I lost to my 19-year-old son

Ian Poulter is a golfer that many are talking about. His quality and what he has achieved on the golf scene is truly impressive. His son, Luke, followed in his father's footsteps and is a great golf enthusiast. In addition, he is a huge talent.

This is confirmed by Ian Poulter's statement; Namely, the popular golfer played a golf match with his son and ended up losing. “So we actually played Queenwood, three weeks ago, and it was a cool match,” Poulter said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com “We were going up the last, and I basically had a five foot putt to tie him, and I missed it”.

For Luke, many believe that he will become as big as his father. In the last interview, Poulter joked about his son. “It took 19 years for him to finally beat me. But, you know, the day was always coming when he would have that opportunity and it's just it's pretty special."

Ian is hoping for an exciting weekend as he will be playing in the tournament alongside his son.

It's the moment every father dreams of. “It's pretty cool to be in a position to have your son playing in the same golf tournament as you. I mean, it's fairy tale stuff and I think I'm I might be more excited for him than he's excited in himself to play golf this week.

So it's just going to be an amazing week”. Although many predict that Luke will have a great career, Ian warned his son from the first days that he has a difficult task ahead of him. Namely, the competition is huge. There are a large number of talented golfers on the scene.

In such an environment, it can sometimes be difficult to succeed. "There are thousands of really good golfers nowadays competing on many, many tours and he knows, to be one of those, he's going to have to work exceptionally hard. So he's doing that. He's working hard and hopefully he can reap the rewards of that very soon”.
