SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA-Congratulations Ian Poulter on a well-fought Match Play event at Finca Cortesin in Spain this weekend. Having defeated #1 ranked Lee Westwood in an earlier round, Ian was up against a match play machine and #2 world ranked Luke Donald in the final day of play.
Much was at stake as the #2 and #3 ranked Donald and Martin Kaymer could have secured a #1 world ranking, had Ian not decided to show up and put in a hard day’s work.
Having been down several times during the final match, Ian continued to fight his way back and sealed his victory on the 17th green with a 6 foot putt for par.
This is Ian Poulter’s second match play win in 2 years, adding the Volvo to his 2010 Accenture victory in Arizona. Ian is now considered a major force in the match play format.
