Poulter staying quiet on Chambers Bay


Ian Poulter is refusing to talk about next week’s US Open venue Chambers Bay – after labelling it a ‘complete farce’ earlier in the year. 

The Englishman took to Twitter to reveal he’d be making no further comment on the layout until after the event. 

He started by claiming his views on the course “are yet to happen” and that he won’t make those views public until he holes his final putt.

However, Poulter continued replying to one of his followers that he “can’t talk the truth without pissing people off.”

This comes just six weeks after Poulter made clear that he had heard the course was “a complete farce” in late April.

Player reviews of Chambers Bay have been mixed do far.

Poulter, whose best finish at the US Open was T12 in 2006 at Winged Foot, revealed in a tweet that “several players” are unhappy with it.

The course opened in 2007 and hosted the US Amateur in 2010, won by Peter Uihlein. The 2015 U.S. Open marks the first time the event will be held in the Pacific Northwest.

World No. 3 Henrik Stenson made a trip to Chambers Bay on his way to the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship in San Francisco.

He said: “It was interesting. There is quite the elevation drop on a few of the holes. It looks like links with quite severe green areas and some big drop-offs. It could be fairly low scoring if the weather is good, and it could be brutal if the wind blows. It will be more easy to give a final say once I’ve played it.”
