Social media is a powerful tool. If you're a sports nut, you can personally connect with your favorite athletes with just a few strokes on your keyboard.
And, at times (like today), us fans can get a cool inside look that prior to Twitter we may have heard about but never actually seen.
Over the weekend in the Turkish Open on the European Tour, Ian Poulter had a commanding lead with 36 holes to play. Poulter struggled mightily in the third round, carding a 75. He bounced back with a 67 on Sunday, but missed a 5-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff with eventual winner Brooks Koepka.
On Monday, two-time major champ Greg Norman sent a tweet Poulter's way:
It's not uncommon for players to offer one another advice. We just aren't used to seeing it play out on Twitter.
For his part, Poulter seemed happy to hear Norman's thoughts:
Pretty cool to get an inside look at that.
