Colin Montgomerie clarifies Twitter ban

Ian Poulter is back on Twitter. Just don’t expect him to reveal

any Ryder Cup secrets.

European captain Colin Montgomerie wants to clarify the policy

on using social media at Celtic Manor. He says players can use

Twitter, as long as they respect the privacy of the team room and

whatever else happens with his teammates.

Hours after Montgomerie and U.S. captain Corey Pavin said they

didn’t want their players on Twitter, Poulter tweeted his more than

1 million followers explaining the policy. Poulter says he played

seven holes and the course was awesome.

When asked about the matter on Tuesday, Montgomerie said he

thought he was captain of a golf team, not a tweeting

organization.
