Ian Poulter to compete at PGA Championship

Posted May 16, 2017

Ian Poulter is back among the top 100 in the world. This victory comes with perks beyond the $1.89 million first prize.

Wallace was playing on the third-tier Alps Tour past year, where he won six times - including five events in a row - and earned membership to the Challenge Tour.

Poulter never imagined all this two weeks ago. He's been plagued by problems most of the season and has been forced to withdraw from four tournaments and missed the cut in seven other starts.

That's when a clerical oversight - discovered by Brian Gay - saved him.

Without so much as a deep breath, the 21-year-old from South Korea drew back his wedge, fired it at the middle of the green and resumed his march into the record book as the youngest victor of The Players Championship in its 44-year history.

The Englishman took it from there.

Poulter finished three shots behind South Korea's Si Woo Kim, the event's youngest champion at 21, to earn a cheque for £715,000 which should keep him in Ferraris for the foreseeable future.

Simona Halep outlasts determined Mladenovic to retain Madrid title
In the quarterfinals of the Spanish tournament, Simone did not notice the resistance of the American Vandervage 6: 1, 6: 1. Given this result, plus the ability of Simone to play in Madrid , she is a favorite and the upcoming semi-final.

Poulter, 20 years older than Kim, knew the goods when he saw the leaderboards. "If I do go play Wentworth, there are huge world-ranking points available. I think that really helped me to be stable". "The putter is not quite doing what I would like". He was the only player to seriously challenge Kim until he ran out of holes, and then it was a matter of finishing second.

Of the 12 players within five shots of the lead entering Sunday, just three broke par on the par-72 layout. He followed that with a birdie on the 17th, and then holed a long par putt from just off the 18th green.

If this Dublin punter sees Si Woo Kim anytime soon, he owes him a stack of pints.

Poulter sure did his part.

"It wasn't looking like a great summer", he said, referring to the prospect of trying to get PGA Tour invitations when he typically spends most of his summer in England with his family. Still, it's interesting just how normal Kim's situation was after winning almost $2 million the previous day. Defending champion Jason Day made a quadruple-bogey 9 at the par-5 16th hole, hit his tee shot at No. 17 into the water, and limped home with an 80 to tie for 60th and kept up the streak of no back-to-back champions.

"I really wish I could be a good example of the Korean men's player", Kim said.

"I feel like I'm still dreaming", Kim said via a translator after the victory.

China to allow US beef exports under new deal
The ban was imposed in 2003 due to a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease, in Washington state. MasterCard welcomed the announcement, saying it looked forward "to having full and prompt market access in China".

Cabrera Bello threw his 8-iron high in the air, and it went into the water, though at least it could be retrieved.

Kim sank a 24-foot birdie putt at the par-4 seventh to seize the lead and sank an 18-foot birdie putt at the par-5 ninth to reach 10-under for a two-stroke advantage.

He wound up with a 70 and tied for fourth.

Si Woo Kim of South Korea became the youngest victor of The Players Championship with a game and nerves well beyond his 21 years. It's a fine shot, didn't cost himself any money, didn't cost him any world ranking points, but he clearly did not play to win-and he didn't. The final top 10 will earn LPGA Tour cards.

Butch Harmon says Kim's swing looks virtually ideal in all positions, and it was my first look at a player who first qualified for a PGA Tour card aged 17 and had to wait six months before being old enough to officially join the circuit.

"I was a little pressured that I qualified at Q-school when I was 17 years old", Kim said through a translator.
