Oh, Ian Poulter

Ian Poulter is a contender for the most narcissistic players on the PGA tour. This picture shows that the flamboyant British golfer had a rather interesting design feature included on his wedges.


While his decision to imprint the names of his Ferraris on his clubs can be justified by the fact that they were the tools that paid for his luxury cars, he has really opened himself up to some unwanted vitriol.

One gets the feeling that Poulter is trying to ape today's sybaritic rappers and the pimped up golf clubs are his version of Lil Wayne's swarovski-encrusted grill. This type of behaviour does nothing but perpetuate the outdated stereotype that the sport is played primarily by insanely wealthy snobs.
