London - As Ian Poulter goes through his final
preparations for The Open this weekend, the Englishman experienced a rather
unusual encounter from a passionate group of Arsenal supporters.

The Golfing Gooner was given a little help
from his fellow fans who brought some terrace atmosphere to the normally quieter
The day became even
more interesting when Poulter found Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg had taken the place of his caddie.
Ian Poulter once said home support really drives him on when he plays
tournament golf in Britain, especially at The Open or Ryder Cup. With his passion for football, PUMA arranged
for an Arsenal contingent to give him a special send off for Hoylake.
Ian Poulter said: “Home support means a lot to me in England, it’s always
inspiring and motivating to hear the fans cheering you on through eighteen
holes on home soil. Obviously I’ve seen Arsenal play a lot
throughout my life, and I've been lucky enough to be involved in some very
passionate Ryder Cup matches in recent years, so being part of this film that
brought Arsenal fans together with a very different spectator sport like golf
was a fantastic and unique experience.”
