Ian Poulter stands out on the course for his attire almost as much as for his game.
Happy 38th birthday, Ian Poulter.
The ebullient Englishman was born Jan. 10, 1976 in Herfordshire, England, and has earned a spot among golf's most unique personalities.
Poulter took up golf at age 4, and worked as an assistant pro and golf shop manager before turning professional at age 20. He was the European Tour's rookie of the year in 2000 and has amassed a dozen victories on the PGA Tour and European Tour, the biggest of which are the 2010 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and 2012 WGC-HSBC Champions.
And, of course, Poulter is one of golf's most fashion-forward dressers. With his spiked hair and eye-catching tartan trousers, he stands out on the course for his attire almost as much as for his game. He's well known for ironing his own clothes before he hits the links, and his Ian Poulter Designs is one of golf's fastest-growing clothesmakers.
