Ian Poulter has accepted an invitation to play at the BMW PGA Championship from 25-28 May at Wentworth.
Along with the win came a cash prize of $1.89 million. His tour card is safe for another year.
Poulter never imagined all this two weeks ago. "I didn't know he had to drop it, and didn't see it".
That's when a clerical oversight - discovered by Brian Gay - saved him. Only last month, he thought he has lost his PGA Tour card only for a miscalculation in his earnings due to a medical dispensation. On Saturday night at THE PLAYERS, my back began to flare up.
The Englishman took it from there.
"From being in a position a couple of weeks ago where I wasn't here to finish tied second, it's a good week", said Poulter after finishing three shots behind South Korea's Si Woo Kim - his best finish since November 2014.
Competing against Team United States at the Cup will be the global team, comprising the top 10 worldwide players in the official world ranking.
"It's been a big week", Poulter said.
Ian Poulter is looking forward to getting back to the revamped Wentworth when he tees it up in next week's BMW PGA Championship. I think I've still got some work to do.
"And then the moment that I was leading, I was very confident". That card effectively went to waste, and Kim spent the next two years on the developmental tour until earning his card back to the big leagues. He followed with a short birdie on the 17th and a long par from just off the 18th green. Officially, he had only one putt over the last three holes.
Poulter sure did his part.
Un discours sur l'islam particulièrement attendu — Trump
L'avion transportant Donald Trump s'est posé samedi en milieu de matinée à Ryad, a rapporté un journaliste de l'AFP à l'aéroport. Trump. "Je suis venu chercher un nouveau départ entre les Etats-Unis et les musulmans à travers le monde", avait-il lancé.
While it's very impressive that Kim won his first PGA event at TPC Sawgrass, what's more mind-boggling is that he finished the Tour's Q School by age 17. "For that all to turn around the way and for me to be sitting here in a slightly different situation, it's pleasing".
Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello finished in a tie for fourth.
And then the Spaniard couldn't miss. But he had a stretch of six consecutive holes on the back nine without facing a par putt over two feet as he scrambled his way to the top.
But Choi needed a David Toms three-putt on the first playoff hole to raise his Waterford crystal.
"He's lining up in the middle of the green".
He wound up with a 70 and tied for fourth.
South Korean Kim Si-woo became the youngest victor of The Players Championship on Sunday when he shot a final round three-under-par 69 to clinch a three-stroke victory at the TPC Stadium course in Ponte Vedra.
Kim also soared in the world rankings, jumping from 75th to 28th. And he earned every penny and point, grinding out pars after missing 10 greens, making birdies at Nos.
"After consulting with my team last night and this morning, I have made a decision to withdraw from this week's AT&T Byron Nelson", Kim said in a statement.
"I really wish ( I could avoid it) but I have to go to the military service and I've already decided I'm going to go, too, so I'm ready".
