Ian Poulter's Ribbing of Rory McIlroy Seems a Bit Harsh

We all know Ian Poutler is, ahem, the king of golf Twitter, and that the Europeans sure do like giving each other as much hell as possible on the social site, but Poult's latest messages directed at young Rory McIlroy seem a little rough, even for them.

Poulter went after McIlroy on Thursday evening after his opening 75 at the Wells Fargo Championship has him well below the cut line, sending him the following messages, with the second one directing him to this photo of a step-by-step guide to helping someone that's choking.

The 35-year-old Englishman, who, by the way, hasn't won a European Tour event since November and has only one PGA Tour win to his name, the same amount as McIlroy, doesn't exactly have a ton of room to chatter about playing his guts out. They both have the same amount of major titles (that would be the same as you have), and Poulter has exactly one top-10 this season on tour, and that was at the first event of the year in Hawaii.

He went on to tell the Twitter world to lighten up, and that this is banter between "mates," but even Lee Westwood responded that he felt the message was a little harsh, and he's also a "mate" if I'm not mistaken.

How great would it be if McIlroy tossed together another incredible run at Quail Hollow, and then posted a step-by-step guide to Poulter on how to go f*$% himself? I'd really enjoy it.

I adore Ian Poulter for making golf fun. Stop being an ass Shane Bacon.

It might have been a bit harsh, but it wasn't one way. Rory was giving Ian a ton of "banter" about the fact the he keeps missing cuts

Why does anybody have the right to comment on how two friends speak to eachother?
It's the same as me and my mate giving each other crap and then someone else who does not know us taking offence.

For crying out loud Shane. If you knew anything about the way Brits rib each other constantly you would not have written this piece.

I should know. I'm British.
