The LIV golfer was left fuming on social media after being denied TV footage from the Czech Masters

Ian Poulter has taken to social media to express his anger at the DP World Tour after the circuit ‘denied’ him TV footage from the Czech Masters.

In an epic rant on Instagram, Poulter apologised to fans for not being allowed to share tournament footage before slamming the DP World Tour over ‘being treated very differently’ to other players.

“Really sorry that I am unable to share any good TV clips of us from the Czech Masters or DP World Tour tournament moving forward,” Poulter wrote on Instagram. “[The] DP World Tour have denied us any footage that was freely available and [that] they’d happily request in the past.”

The comments come just two months after Poulter was banned and fined by the European circuit for signing with LIV Golf. This was followed by the Englishman winning a legal injunction to play in the Scottish Open, before shrugging off booing talk at The Open over his controversial switch.

But now, returning to the DP World Tour for just his second non-major event since the turmoil started, it seems Poulter feels he is still being treated differently to other members.

“We nearly made a hole-in-one on the 16th hole today which would have been some good content,” he continued. “I thought I was still a member of the DP World Tour, but I guess they have other ideas.

“Well actually I am, but I’m being treated very differently to a member. Sorry fans, I hope we all have a resolve on this as soon as possible.”

Ouch. Poults returns to LIV on September 2 for the league’s fourth event in Boston, where we’re sure he’ll get all the footage his social media desires.
