PGA: Poulter wins Houston Open, gets in Masters

"I'm going to go out and have some fun tomorrow". The 23-year-old hit a awful bunker shot on the first hole of the playoff that went over the green and into the water.

"I did think I'd made it", Hossler said, "but it hung out there".

Poulter hasn't always been the most popular player in America and has so often been a thorn in their side during previous Ryder Cup victories.

When he reached the quarterfinals of the Dell Technologies Match Play last weekend in Austin, he was told it was enough to get him into the top 50 in the world ranking by the end of the weekend, the cutoff for qualifying for the Masters.

The victory was Poulter's first since the 2012 WGC HSBC Champions, and it clinched a Masters bid he thought he had already earned.

"Last week was painful".

Ian Poulter won his first tournament for six years to qualify for the Masters. "To come here this week, I was exhausted".

"But I had to dig deep today and I am delighted with the way I played and how I've managed to come behind to win".

Wenger still has the hunger for Gunners glory, insists Bould
He's doing a great job, as far as I'm concerned and has done a great job for an awfully long time ". I couldn't do the same as Henry, Ronaldo and the like and you have to know this to play there".

"I was patient, I waited my time and this is incredible".

After shooting a 1-over 73 in the first round, Poulter shot 20 under over the next three rounds.

He doesn't have to worry about that now after securing his first win since 2012.

Poulter just missed out on an eagle at the eighth, but he then recorded his first bogey since the 13th hole on Thursday at the ninth, leaving him two ahead of Spieth, Hossler and another American in Sam Ryder, who briefly closed to within one after a birdie at the 13th before giving it back at the 14th. "So there's life in the old dog yet".

The day turned dark for Rickie Fowler, though, as the American went from being the early leader to five strokes off the pace after a round that included a bogey, a double bogey and a triple bogey to go with five birdies.

Hossler did everything right until the playoff. I didn't play my best stuff. "I'm super excited. It's been a rollercoaster the last couple of years to be honest, to be down where I was has been tough".

Australia's Greg Chalmers, who equaled Poulter for Saturday's lowest round, sits in a tie for third with Argentine Emiliano Grillo, Kevin Tway and Irishman Paul Dunne at 12 under.

Ninety players teed off Saturday, the most in nearly three years on the PGA Tour, after Bobby Gates' final-hole bogey on Friday allowed an additional 20 players to make the cut.
