Ian Poulter’s 45-hole bogey-free streak has him atop the PGA Tour leaderboard

April 14th, 2018

With the 2018 Ryder Cup just a few months away, Ian Poulter is playing magnificent golf – and he’s in position to seal his invite to next year’s Masters just two weeks after his dramatic win in Houston got him to Augusta this year. Poulter, one of the most polarizing figures in golf along with fellow Ryder Cup hero Patrick Reed, claimed the lead at the RBC Heritage, going low on Saturday after a stellar 64 in the second round. Poulter’s last bogey came at the ninth hole on Thursday, and he’s been flawless ever since. Just textbook. @IanJamesPoulter joins the leaders at @RBC_Heritage. #QuickHits pic.twitter.com/YAL1lWSCnn — PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) April 14, 2018 Poulter wasn’t able to translate his strong form into a solid finish at The Masters – he made the cut, but finished in a tie for 44th – but Poulter could become the fourth player to win multiple PGA Tour events this season on Sunday (joining Patton Kizzire, Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson). Distance control personified. That left to take the solo lead. #QuickHits pic.twitter.com/rfG6sMNgLb — PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) April 14, 2018 Poulter finished Saturday with a 4-under par round of 69, giving him a one-shot lead over Luke List and Si Woo Kim. if(typeof(jQuery)==”function”)(function($)$.fn.fitVids=function()})(jQuery)}; jwplayer(‘jwplayer_fpIUO9aK_t2dCqACG_div’).setup( “playlist”:”https://content.jwplatform.com/feeds/fpIUO9aK.json”,”ph”:2 ); More Golf!Kelly Kraft misses PGA Tour cut after rogue bird causes double bogeyGraeme McDowell thanks fan after ball takes fortuitous bounce off his headWho is the greatest golfer ever: Tiger or Jack?
