Throughout most of his professional career, Ian Poulter has always had one consistent supporter, his wife Katie. The pair met in 1995, when Katie was a nurse, and they tied the knot in 2007.

The couple have four children together - Aimee-Leigh, Luke, Lily-Mai and Joshua. Katie found out she was pregnant with their third child just before The Open in 2008, but she waited until he finished the tournament before telling him the news. A few months later, the couple welcomed their daughter, Lily Mai.

Despite sharing the odd car picture (Poulter likes his motors) on Instagram, the golfer mostly posts golf-related material. He did, however, share a happy birthday message last year when his son, Luke, turned 18.

Hertfordshire-born Poulter, who joined LIV Golf last year, now lives in Florida on Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. Graeme McDowell, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and several other PGA Tour players live on the same luxurious site. It is reported that the couple still have a property together in Milton Keynes, too, and they make regular trips back to the UK. 

Katie, in a funny story told by Poulter, once managed to spend a $100 bill that was signed by none other than Arnold Palmer. Poulter and Palmer became friends before the American passed away, to the point where he got an autograph off Arnie on the note.

"He signed a $100 bill which my wife actually spent one time; I had to get another one done. It was in the safe. She didn’t realize it was actually signed by Arnie, so it’s out there somewhere. I have no idea what she did with it. Not a clue. It was probably in Publix to be honest. She probably went to get some groceries."

Perhaps best remembered for his 2012 heroics at the Ryder Cup, Poulter is still yet to get the Major monkey off his back. His best finish came back in 2008 at The Open Championship.
