Ian Poulter Mistake Gets Animated Responses

Golf has a lot of rules, many of which are hard to remember. During the second round of the Volvo China Open on Friday, Ian Poulter made the mistake of forgetting one of those rules. Poulter was hit with a two-stroke penalty for taking an illegal drop, making an eight on the hole, which led to a second-round 74.

After his round, Poulter made fun of himself on Twitter, calling himself a “nobhead” and a “helmet.”

After bashing himself, Poulter had a little fun with the whole situation, offering his followers a chance to win some IJP Design gear and a signed Ryder Cup photo. The prizes will go to the funniest cartoon rendition of Poulter’s illegal drop.

Poulter has received some interesting submissions so far:

Although Poulter was looking for drawn submissions, his followers submitted some pretty funny photo cartoons.

He’s even allowing his buddy Lee Westwood to throw his drawing into the contest.

Poulter was not happy about his second-round 74 for several reasons, one of which was the fact that he has to wake up earlier than he’d like on Saturday.
