If you’re one of Ian Poulter’s many detractors, rejoice. You may not have to see him on the PGA Tour much longer.
Poults is behind the eight ball with regards to the amount of loot he needs to earn to retain his tour card. His 2015-2016 season was compromised by a lingering foot injury that eventually forced him to shut things down in May.
Returning to action as of last fall, Ian Poulter had 10 events on major medical extension to retain his card. He has six tournaments left to pocket $220,301 or 154 FedEx Cup points to retain his card.
”I’m on borrowed time. Yeah, I need to perform well. … A win would be nice. I have to think that I’ve got a chance, I really do. The situation I’m in, I have to be aggressive, but I’ve got to be careful. I can’t make many mistakes.”
Can’t make many mistakes? Hopefully that means he’s shutting down his Twitter.
Poulter opened the Honda Classic with a four-under 66. Unfortunately for his wealth of haters. If he manages to record a top-10 finish, he’ll be well on his way to making the requisite amount of money to retain his card. Which means that, for better or worse, we’ll get to see a lot more of this.
