Ian Poulter, who is 14/1 with bookmaker to win this weekend, is determined to focus on matters on the course at the Ballantine’s Championship.
Poulter has been criticised in some quarters for his off-course approach to his game, but the flamboyant Englishman is confident that he can combine the two and continue to be a leading contender for victories.
He told AFP: “Would I like to be known as a great golfer or someone who wears great, great clothes? I’d like to be known for both. I’m not picking one over the other.
“First and foremost I have been able to win more than 13 tournaments around the world, so I am a good golfer. It’s dead simple.”
Poulter showed signs of a return to top form at the first Major of the season, finishing the Masters with a superb final round of 66, which left him seventh on the final leaderboard.
