Ian Poulter posted a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the PGA Championship.
The Englishman failed to break par in every round en route to a T52 at Firestone last week, but he was a bit of a question mark upon arrival given a reaction to a bug bite just days before. No such letdown today as he hit 13 greens in regulation and poured in five birdies. His first three were notable, measuring 24 feet, 20 feet and 38'4", respectively at the 11th, 13th and 18th holes. Poulter signed his card sitting just three strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders. At last check, his strokes gained-putting read 2.354. Aug 7 - 2:01 PM

Ian Poulter arrived at the halfway point of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in 6-over-par 73-73=146.

That he's competing at all is a minor victory. While he's in the clear from the cyst in his right wrist that bothered him at The Open Championship, Poulter was seeking medical attention yet again over this past weekend for an insect bite. He kept his followers on Twitter updated with photos and his usual no-nonsense honesty. If it's not bothering him, you couldn't tell based on his first two days in Akron, Ohio. The Englishman has erased three birdies with nine bogeys and sits 17 strokes adrift of Sergio Garcia's 36-hole lead. Poulter has hit just 16 greens in regulation and ranks 64th in strokes gained-putting (-0.957).

With a 1-over-par 39-34=73 in his opening round of The Open Championship, Ian Poulter is seven strokes off the clubhouse lead.

So much for the shot of adrenaline he received with the results of an MRI that revealed nothing more than a cyst. Poulter split 11 (of 14) fairways, but found only 11 greens in regulation. He managed an eagle-3 at 10 and two birdies thereafter, but squared five bogeys elsewhere, including on the par-5 fifth. However, don't rule him out on Friday given that he played better coming in than going out today.

Ian Poulter alerted his followers on Twitter that he's a green light for this week's Open Championship.

"Great news with the wrist," Poulter wrote, referring to the results of an MRI on his right wrist. "On impact I've Jared [sic] it and an old ganglion cyst has shown itself. No tendon or damage. Painkillers and crack on." While it's obvious to state that he must be relieved, there also must be an elevated confidence that will free him up to tackle Royal Liverpool.

In an article at on Monday, it was reported that Ian Poulter is nursing an injury to his right wrist.

"I picked up a niggle last week, which is a bit frustrating," the Englishman said, referring to his appearance at Royal Aberdeen for the Scottish Open where he missed the cut by three strokes. "I have got to get a scan to make sure it is OK. I just jarred it when I hit a shot on 14 and then had to hit a shot out of the rough on 18." In a follow-up on his Twitter page, he added: "Just had the MRI. Wait until [Tuesday] to get the results. No fractures that I do know. Radiologist will let me know. Fingers crossed." That said, he was confident pre-test results in the online article. "I am playing this week, I can hit shots but it is sore," he added. "I definitely strained something. I am going to have to be careful." Poulter has a sparkling record in this major, but the stars aren't aligning.

Ian Poulter scorched TPC Southwind for a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to pick off a top 10 at 7-under 283.

Poulter's round featured seven birdies to just one bogey, with highlights including birdies from 10'8", 22'2", 17'9", 19'3" and 15'4" on the first, fifth, ninth, 13th and 18th holes respectively. Needless to say, he gained just shy of five strokes with the flat stick in the final round. His best finish in 2014 on the PGA TOUR was a T20 at the Masters, so this week should be huge for his confidence as he turns his full attention to Pinehurst for the U.S. Open. Of course, the Brit has never lacked confidence. His best finish of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season remains his T2 at the WGC-HSBC Champions back in November of 2013.

Ian Poulter will have a crack at TPC Southwind at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The Englishman is finding his form of late, showcased by his four finishes of 26th place or better in his last six worldwide events. Poulter found himself inside the top 15 last year after 54-holes, seven shots off the pace, before blowing up to the tune of 6-over 76 on Sunday. His recent play parlayed with three sub-par rounds in last year's edition makes him a worthy option in most fantasy formats this week.

Ian Poulter will return to competition at THE PLAYERS this week.

Poulter is entering the week with a very nice T20 Masters finish as his latest PGA TOUR result. The Englishman stayed active after the Masters with a T5 finish overseas at the Volvo China Open. With that current form and five top-30 PLAYERS finishes to his name since 2006, there is a good chance that he finds his way into contention yet again.

Ian Poulter circled seven birdies en route to a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Englishman only recorded two pars on the front nine at Bay Hill, with his four bogeys outpacing three birdies. Immediately upon making the turn he caught fire, rattling off three consecutive birdies on 10, 11 and 12 before drawing blood for the final time on the easy par-5 16th. Poulter hasn't been playing particularly well of late, losing in the first round of the Match Play and tying for 52nd in the WGC-Cadillac Championship. A nice final round should have him licking his chops for Augusta National in three weeks.

Ian Poulter chased his opening 68 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the second round to post 5-under 139, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Poulter circled four birdies at Bay Hill today, but endured a common occurrence at the par-4 18th hole. After splitting the fairway off the tee, his approach landed in an unplayable lie either in or near the rocks bordering the green. After a drop, he'd eventually two-putt from 53 inches for double bogey.

Ian Poulter submitted a 4-under-par 35-33=68 for his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

IJP's success on redesigned Bay Hill is reason enough to invest this week, but he's never gone lower on any iteration of the track in 24 previous rounds. He hit 14 greens and circled six birdies today, the longest measuring just 13'8" at the par-4 10th hole. He suffered two bogeys and missed four putts inside 10 feet, but signed his card sitting six strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Rickie Fowler defeated Ian Poulter 2 and 1 in the Hogan Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Neither guy entered with much form, but the American capitalized on his fortunate opportunity to compete. Fowler picked off five wins, three of which with pars, while Poulter battled with three wins, all with birdies. However, once Fowler reached 3 up after seven holes, it became a matter of maintaining position until time ran out. Indeed, his lead didn't drop below 2 up at any time thereafter. Poulter's success in match play is well-documented -- he was the winner here in 2010 -- but this is the fourth time that he's been bounced in the opening round. It's the third time since his title. Fowler advances to face buzz-saw Jimmy Walker in the second round.

After a one-year hiatus, Ian Poulter returns to the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

It must be a Ryder Cup year. The Englishman constructed his schedule in 2010 and 2012 to include a stop at TPC Scottsdale if for no other reason than to bang out a start early in the U.S. to contribute to the membership minimum requirement of 15. In fact, he totaled exactly 15 starts in both seasons before adding to his legacy in the biennial competition versus the U.S. Given that the WMPO is just a regular tournament featuring stroke play, it wouldn't be wise to invest in Poulter this week. He's even on record that he just doesn't find the same enthusiasm that we've witnessed time and again on the biggest stages in golf.
Jan 28 - 11:33 PM

Ian Poulter closed out calendar year 2013 with an excellent run and looks poised for a solid year on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR.

The Brit's last four tournaments began with a runner-up at the WGC-HSBC Champions, the continued with a T5 at the Turkish Airlines Open, a runner-up at the DP WORLD TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP and a seventh at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge. His match-play prowess is well documented, but this recent stroke-play streak is somewhat rare. With 2014 being a Ryder Cup year, expect his best. Of course, it seems impossible he would be left off the Euro roster under any circumstance.

Ian Poulter ended the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a 6-under-par 32-34=66 to conclude 72 holes in 21-under 267, three strokes back of champion Dustin Johnson.

Poulter submitted a valiant effort to defend on a different golf course, but he'll have to accept a payday of $850,000.00 instead. He erased a lone bogey at the par-4 15th hole today with seven birdies. The Brit finished the week with seven bogeys against two eagles and 24 birdies. Next up is the Turkish Airlines Open.
