When Ian Poulter claims that he is Tiger Woods' main threat, you would be forgiven for thinking that it is the trouser wearing stakes rather than for his ability on the golf course.
But not so.
The Englishman with a fondness for the multi-coloured pantaloon has proclaimed that out of all his rivals he is the only one who can challenge the world number one. However, he does at least have the grace to admit that this will only be achievable when he finally reaches his full potential.
That's some claim from a 32-year-old who has spent nigh on 12 years as a pro and has only won seven career titles and is yet to win a major.
Compare that to the enviable record of Woods who has 13 majors and 85 career titles to his name, all this after turning pro a year later than his English counterpart.
It is a boast that probably won't sit too well in the clubhouse, so does Poulter know something that the rest of the golfing world is missing? Or, as the Guardian put it, is he just "an attention seeking prat"?
