Ian Poulter could not convert his overnight lead into win at Puerto Rico Open, ending 3rd (tied) behind Steve Marino and Tony Finau.
The England man, who has not become victorious at a PGA Tour title since the year 2012, carded a level-par seventy-two in the final round.
That left him one off the leaders, who were separated by a play-off – American Finau beating his compatriot Marino with three successive birdies. The forty year old golfer told that this is a bit disappointing. He is continuing to work on the game to attempt and improve and he know if he rectify
a couple of poor shots then his game would improve. Hitting shots slightly too far right at certain times is costly.
Meanwhile, he has lived up to his car-lover repute by sending one of his prized-assets to get some ‘TLC’. Ian, who recently ended T3 at Puerto Rico Open at the Coco Beach, is targeting to win his very first tournament since the year 2012.

Adam Scott seems to be in quite a charged state of late. The dapper Aussie golfer is liking the tender green pastures before him & is excited to get back to his long putter time.
In fact, Scott is so confident that he is not only focused on winning US Masters but is also looking forward to dominate this entire season.
“I am not here just for throwing balls up & see where these fall”, remarked the Australian golfer.
Adam was naturally discontent with his performance last year as he could only triumph in one single tournament in 2014. These days he is all set to ablaze the courses with glory & is eager to win back his #1 world ranking.
“We do not find many golfers winning huge & my next challenge is to be among those few guys who actually win in most of the matches. This is my biggest challenge this year”, Scott looks pretty determined to revive his previous winning glory in 2015.
“I am looking forward to challenge the #1 spot. It is that I am eager to put forward my level best that will enable me to come up with highest possible performance.”
At this moment, he is concentrated mostly on his long putter. Continue reading →
Australian golfer Adam Scott believes his lack of match practice over the last few months cost him the title at the World Golf Championship – Cadillac Championship in Florida last week as Dustin Johnson made a sensational return to professional golf, winning the title over the rest of the pack.
Having started the final round a massive eight shots behind the leader, Scott gave the leading bunch a run for their money when he halved that lead at the end of nine shots and was well placed for one final assault on the title. However, a bogey on the 11th hole made him change his strategies and forced him to go all out on attack on a course that is difficult to navigate traditionally. And that proved to be the difference in the end as he eventually finished in fourth place, five shots behind the winner Johnson.
Adam Scott took an extended break from the sport following the birth of his daughter in February and began the season much later than the others. He had last played at the Australian Masters back in December and admits he still feels some ring rustiness. Continue reading →
Darren Clarke knows quite well that what it takes to become victorious in a major championship. The recently-minted European Ryder Cup leader thinks that Rory McIlroy has everything to take home a green jacket.
Recently, while speaking to BBC Radio, Clarke said that his match is ideally suited to Augusta, a high soft draw, and as they have all seen, he’s got every shot in the bag so there is no reason why he’s not going to win around there sooner rather than later. Continue reading →
Australian golfer and world number three Adam Scott has announced Zimbabwean Mike Kerr as his caddie on a full time basis.
Kerr was the caddy for Scott last November when the two time major winner played at the Australian Open, finishing in fifth position as well as in December when he finished with a tied second place at the Australian PGA Championship.
Following that, Scott had offered Kerr the job on a full time basis and the Zimbabwean has gladly accepted the offer.
Scott released a statement following the appointment of Kerr which said that he is absolutely delighted that Kerr has agreed to be his caddie and he is confident that he will become a very valuable member of his team in 2015 and beyond as well. Continue reading →
