Ian Poulter: 'There is life in the old dog yet'

Beau Hossler GETTYIan Poulter got the better of Beau Hossler in a play-off

"Last week was painful and to come here this week I was exhausted and I was frustrated on Thursday and I did not play my best stuff and I had packed my bags to leave on Friday", he said.

Ian Poulter dramatically earned the final Masters invitation, defeating American tour rookie Beau Hossler at the first extra playoff hole to capture the Houston Open on Sunday.

It's a far cry from last season when the 42-year old thought he had lost his card in America only to be handed a reprieve following a recalculation. To be able to go back across the pond to play some European Tour events obviously with the Ryder Cup in mind in September, this now allows me to be able to do that as well.

Poulter has used both his anger and "Ryder Cup-like" determination to now head to Augusta National and in what will be a first Masters appearance since 2016.

"This is just awesome as I haven't won a stroke-play event in the States so this win, and to do it after the disappointment of last week and to be now going to Augusta, and to have done it in this fashion is fantastic".

'It's not very good for your mental strength.

"That's as low as I've ever been, that's as far down the world rankings as I've been, questioning whether you've got a Tour card or not - it isn't very good". Simplifying my life to get me back on track - it's been unbelievable.

"So to get my first stroke-play victory (in the United States) is a big one, to get the exemption is a big one, to move up in the world ranking points is a big one and to tell Thomas Bjorn, "Hey, I'm here, my game's in shape". "So there's life in the old dog yet".

Poulter was four shots clear midway through the final round only to trail by one with three holes remaining after Hossler made four successive birdies. A steady par in the replayed 18th was enough to seal the title after Hossler twice found bunkers. He climbs to 29th in the world rankings.
