Ian Poulter

Pro Since 1999
39 Age UK


Ian Poulter is one of the most exciting talents in golf today. He is easily identifiable with his fashion forward dress, multi-colored Oakley sunglasses, finely manicured sideburns and well-groomed hairstyles.

Poulter took up the game at the age of four when his dad, Terry, a single figure handicapper, gave him a cut-down three wood. Poulter turned professional at 19 then won the Open de C´te d’Ivoire on the European Challenge Tour in 1999, but finished 30th in the order of merit and had to visit Qualifying School to successfully win his Tour card back.

Ian then won The Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year award in 2000 and four years later made a successful Ryder Cup debut as part of Bernhard Langera’s victorious European Team.  Poulter has been a staple on the European team, participating in 2004, 2008, 2010 and 2012.

His wife and four children live in Orlando, Florida where Poulter has amassed an impressive car collection ranging from Ferrari’s to Aston Martin’s and more.  His popularity sparks from his good play, handsome designs and sometimes-polarizing comments.

When asked why he chose Oakley eyewear Poulter stated: “I wear Oakley because it’s the best. You want to look, feel and play your best. With the way technology has come along and the clarity of the lens, I have 100% trust in what I’m seeing. Add on all the styles and colors? I love wearing them. And when I play, I know I'm wearing the best in the business.”
