POUL­TER MAKES EARLY EXIT ON IN­JURY RE­TURN IN MIS­SIS­SIPPI

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Ian Poul­ter’s come­back from in­jury stut­tered as he missed the cut at the San­der­son Farms Cham­pi­onship in Mis­sis­sippi. The English­man was play­ing just his sec­ond tour­na­ment since suf­fer­ing a foot in­jury in June and fin­ished on one over af­ter his first two rounds – three shots off the cut line. Poul­ter had made a strong start af­ter card­ing a two-un­der par 70 dur­ing his first round, but af­ter mak­ing the turn on level par for his sec­ond round, things went wrong on the back nine as four bo­geys and a birdie left him sign­ing for a 75. With the top 50 in the world el­i­gi­ble to com­pete in the WGCHSBC Cham­pi­ons in Shang­hai, world No. 138 Poul­ter would have been hop­ing for a stronger show­ing at the tour­na­ment at the Coun­try Club of Jack­son where the high­est-ranked player is world No. 76 Chris Kirk of the USA.
