KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Part of Ian Poulter's punishment for violating a PGA Tour policy is spending two weeks in Hawaii to start the new year.
That would be a most literal interpretation of the penalty.
And it only tells part of the story of how Poulter chose to make up for missing a tournament he was supposed to play.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — World Cup or Ryder Cup: Put Ian Poulter into a team event and he never seems to disappoint.
Poulter's approach to less than a foot helped set up one of England's six birdies on the back nine Thursday to give him and Tyrrell Hatton a share of the lead with South Korea and Australia after the first round of fourballs at the World Cup of Golf.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Ian Poulter is an unabashed fan of the sandbelt courses of southeast Melbourne. So it came as no surprise that he gave England's highest-ranked player at the World Cup of Golf, Tyrrell Hatton, a gentle nudge that he'd like to be on the England team.
JEJU ISLAND, South Korea (AP) — Brooks Koepka has improved his chances of taking over as No. 1 golfer in the world, shooting a bogey-free 5-under 67 Saturday for a four-stroke lead after three rounds of the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges.
Koepka had a three-round total of 13-under 203. Ian Poulter, who shot 68 Saturday, was tied for second place with second-round leader Scott Piercy, who had a 72.
JEJU ISLAND, South Korea (AP) — Chez Reavie overcame cool, windy conditions for a 4-under 68 and a one-stroke lead after the first round of the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges on Thursday.
In the breezy conditions, the back nine of the course posed the most difficulty, but the 36-year-old American made two birdies and negotiated it in 35 after starting on the 10th tee, and then picked up three shots on his final nine.
SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — He'd had a rough morning, the only player to start Day 1 of the Ryder Cup without making birdie.
The afternoon for Rory McIlroy at Le Golf National wasn't proving that much better. He found a bunker on No. 2, missed a sinkable putt on No. 3, then another on No. 11. Had it not been for the steadying dependability of partner Ian Poulter, it seemed McIlroy might melt down altogether.
SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — The Latest on the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National (all times local):
The opening session of the Ryder Cup will be missing some of Europe's biggest names.
"Lefty" is sitting it out, too. This will be the first time since Phil Mickelson's first appearance in 1995 that he won't be on the course at the beginning of Day 1. At 48, he is the oldest member of the American team.
SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — Patrick Reed relishes the role of Captain America.
He's just as comfortable being Public Enemy No. 1 at the Ryder Cup.
"I'm supposed to be the villain, just like when Ian Poulter comes to the States, he's the villain," Reed smirked. "You expect to hear the fans kind of go back and forth with you. If it's not happening, it probably means you're not playing very well."
SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — The Ryder Cup meant the world to Ian Poulter even when he only had a tent to sleep in.
Poulter was 17 and folding shirts in a shop called Jack O' Legs Golf Center in England when he drove his rust bucket of a car to The Belfry for his first taste of the Ryder Cup in 1993. He found a house a few miles away where the owners let him pitch his tent in the yard for three pounds a night.
The chance of playing another Ryder Cup kept Ian Poulter motivated through his dark times over the last two years. Paul Casey made major changes to his schedule in order to get another shot at golf's greatest team event.
Throughout his own recent slump, Sergio Garcia was in regular conversation with close friend Thomas Bjorn in an effort to stay in the European captain's thinking.
Back at the course where he grew up playing, Thomas Bjorn will get a front-row seat to see a three-way fight for the final qualifying spot in his Ryder Cup team.
The European captain returns to Silkeborg Ry Golf Club this week for the Made In Denmark event, where Thorbjorn Olesen, Eddie Pepperell and Matthew Fitzpatrick will bid to become the eighth automatic member of a team seeking to regain the trophy from the United States in Paris.
AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy have become friends more by location than youth. They live near each other in South Florida and said they spent last weekend practicing together at The Bear's Club.
Sunday at Firestone will be the eighth time this year they play together in a tournament, and the number grows next week when they play the opening two rounds with Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship.
AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Nobody has a better scoring average Saturday on the PGA Tour than Tiger Woods, and the Bridgestone Invitational would be a good time to keep that up.
Woods might not have a choice.
Neither will Rory McIlroy, Jason Day or anyone else wanting to keep pace.
AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Ian Poulter was annoyed upon realizing he had never finished better than 13th at Firestone, so he took a step toward doing something about it Thursday with an 8-under 62 and a one-shot lead in the Bridgestone Invitational.
Tiger Woods found himself fighting his swing. He settled for a 66.
Such was the difference of two players with vastly different memories on the stout South course at Firestone.
ANTALYA, Turkey (AP) — Joost Luiten, Haydn Porteous and Nicolas Colsaerts all shot 7-under 64s Thursday to tie for the lead after the first round of the Turkish Airlines Open.
Colsaerts was 8 under through 15 holes, including an eagle on the 12th, but bogeyed the 16th. Porteous brought himself into contention with five birdies on the back nine.
NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE, England (AP) — Tyrrell Hatton shot a 5-under 65 in miserable conditions in his second round to lead by three strokes at the British Masters, where the leaderboard was dominated by English players on Friday.
Lee Westwood, who is hosting the tournament, and Ian Poulter also shot 65 and were two of four Englishmen in a five-way tie for second behind their compatriot.
SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Ian Poulter walked up to the 18th green at the British Open and heard rousing applause for another solid round at Royal Birkdale. He stood tall, a pose not seen from him on a big stage since flags were waving at the Ryder Cup in Gleneagles.
And to think just three months ago, Poulter was at a low point in his career.
SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Ian Poulter spent last year's British Open in a TV commentary booth. It wasn't an experience he particularly enjoyed.
Sidelined by a foot injury, it was hard for a competitive animal like Poulter to sit out his home major and watch others challenge for a title he craves the most.
IRVINE, Scotland (AP) — Ian Poulter controlled his swing, ball, and temperament in what he described as "brutally tough conditions" to move in sight of his first worldwide title in 4 1/2 years at the Scottish Open on Saturday.
In sideways rain and strong winds on Scotland's west coast, clubs slipped from players' hands, hardy fans' umbrellas were blown inside out, and puddles formed on fairways on the battered Dundonald Links.
SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Ian Poulter has made it through the final stage of qualifying to earn a spot at Royal Birkdale for the British Open.
Poulter shot rounds of 68-70 at Woburn Golf Club, his home club and one of five regional final qualifying sites in Britain. Three spots were available from each site. Shiv Kapur of India, who played his college golf at Purdue, was the medalist at Woburn with a 65 in the second round Tuesday.
