    Me too. Was watching until he walked back in the trees- across the track - to his ball sitting in a bush.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    Fair play for 'fessing up! Though the original post did seem a little bitter! Perhaps from his 'unreliability' from a betting pov! His history of 'pressure driven shanks' is pretty well known/documented!

    Great to see he has qualified for next year's tour. He's certainly one of the 'characters' on the tour and generally pretty much available to anyone who wants an interview!

    Re: Poulter needs 40k to keep tour card

    I read that Brandel Chamblee (sp?) called him out on twitter accusing him of not playing to win, then blocked him when he had a go back at him.

    Not going for 12 then the second shot at 16 were the only shots I remember vaguely conservative, but 12 could easily be a bogey going for it and I can't imagine anyone risking all out of that lie on 16.

    His house was finished a few years ago....it did cause his form to drop back then, but his recent struggles have been injury related.

    Re: Poulter needs 40k to keep tour card

    Most players didn't go for it on the 12th. They had great hopes for that hole but the players simply didn't buy into it. Butch was suggesting before the last round, maybe part way through it, that they would tweak it for next year.

    I didn't see a lot of it, but it looked like the ball ended up in the water if it rolled up the left side of the green. That forces players to err on the side of missing right then they have a downhill chip towards water. No wonder not many had a go.

    Put an evil bunker on the right of the green and stop balls rolling in the water that make the left side of the green, either by growing the rough or putting a flat bunker in. Anything short and left deserves to get wet though.

    IMO of course.

    Re: Poulter needs 40k to keep tour card

    Yes the hole had too much risk for little reward, with the water way too much in-play for anything approaching the left-side of the green. Fair play to Poults who now has assured his full playing privileges for 2017-18 as he sits 58th in the FEC.

    Re: Poulter needs 40k to keep tour card

    Good to see that he managed to qualify for the Open at Birkdale - he had his best major there when played last so maybe he could spring a surprise.

    He did a great clinic for kids during the week at Woburn and seems a lot more relaxed at the moment.
