Ian Poulter concedes WGC-Cadillac Championship to Tiger Woods

Mike Ehrmann

Ian Poulter tweeted that Tiger Woods had all but wrapped the WGC-Cadillac Championship. The only problem: not everyone found it funny.

Tiger Woods had yet to take an official swipe at the ball on Sunday at Doral, but at least one of his opponents in this week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship had conceded the match to the frontrunner by Saturday night.

Ian Poulter tweeted -- sarcastically, he informed the humor-impaired -- before retiring for the evening that he and the rest of the star-filled field were vying for runner-up status. It was a message Woods’ playing partner and closest competitor, Graeme McDowell, did not exactly appreciate.

Here’s what Poulter had to say in his concession tweet:

To which McDowell retorted:

McDowell, who is accompanying Woods in the final pairing for the second straight day, outlined his strategy for trying to keep the world No. 2 from chalking up his 50th win in 54 attempts when owning or sharing the 54-hole lead.

"I’ve really got to just keep my head down and try and play my game early on and not react too much to what he’s doing," McDowell told Golf Channel ahead of his 2:40 p.m. ET tee time with Woods. "If he makes some mistakes my game plan remains the same. If he starts to accelerate perhaps we’ve got to get a little more aggressive, but in the short term, just stick to my game plan."

With Woods a perfect 16-for-16 when entering the final round with at least a four-shot lead (according to Golf Channel) and entering the finale with a four-shot advantage over McDowell, all we can say is, good luck, GMac.
