Ian Poulter win WGC-HSBC Champions
By mustang6560 on 11/5/12
Martin Kaymer is credited with securing the winning point for Europe in the Ryder Cup, however, anyone who watched the biennial event knows Ian Poulter was the reason Team Europe won. The Englishman helped secure two critical points Saturday which put Europe in position to pull of its historic win.
Following the Ryder Cup, Ian took a well-deserved break from professional golf to relax, but he picked up right where he left off two weeks ago. In his first appearance back at the BMW Masters, he finished fourth. And yesterday Ian picked up his first victory of the 2012 campaign at the WBC-HSBC Champions.
"It was a special day. I knew there was a good round of golf in me out there on that golf course; as we saw yesterday, if you start going low and get a number on the board then you're going to be hard to beat.One of the commentators made an interesting comment about Ian during the final round. He said (and I paraphrase), "Ian Poulter doesn't miss putts he has to make". It does seem like Ian plays his best in the big moments (i.e. Ryder Cup, on the back nine Sunday, etc.). I can't say the opposite is true, however, I wonder if the reason Ian doesn't win more is because he's not as interested in the smaller tournaments. Regardless, if I had to pick a golfer to make a 10-foot putt to save my life, Ian would be on the short list.
