Poulter silent on Chambers thoughts until after Open


With the U.S. Open set to descend upon Chambers Bay in less than a week, fans and media alike remain eager to hear player feedback about a largely unknown layout. 

As with most Open venues, some players are expected to find it suitable, while others will likely rail against both the course and setup. So where will one of golf's most outspoken stars, Ian Poulter, fall on that spectrum of opinion? You'll have to wait until Sunday to find out.

Back in April, Poulter tweeted that he had heard from players that Chambers was a "complete farce." Poulter has yet to visit the course himself, and he again took to social media Thursday to explain that he will keep his own opinions about the layout to himself:

Poulter then added, "I will not be discussing the Open course with anyone, so it will be (quiet) on Twitter next week." 

The U.S. Open remains the only major in which Poulter has yet to record a top-10 finish, with his best result a T-12 finish in 2006 at Winged Foot. He finished T-17 last year at Pinehurst, and Poulter has four top-10 finishes this season including a T-5 finish at the Crowne Plaza Invitational in his most recent start.
