Poulter trumps Hossler in play-off to earn Masters invite

Padraig Harrington

Beau Hossler birdied the par-4 18th to shoot 69 and match Poulter.

With Poulter's putt on a similar line from just inside 20 feet, Hossler knew he was going to extra holes.

Hossler then handed the win to Poulter in the playoff when his third shot from a bunker flew over the green and into a water hazard. Steve Stricker is back on the PGA Tour this week after winning on the PGA Tour Champions.

"It is awesome, to get this done today to get me to Augusta is incredible", Poulter said. "I had packed my bags to leave on Friday night, and had a mental switch", Poulter said. "To do it this week, after the disappointment of last week, to know I'm going to Augusta, to do it in true fashion, is incredible".

Poulter, however, proceeded to sink a 19-foot birdie putt to tie Hossler and sent the event into a playoff - ultimately taking the final spot for the 2018 Masters Tournament, which starts on Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.

Argentinian Grillo bogeyed the last to finish alongside three-time major championship victor Spieth at 16 under, with American Sam Ryder one shot further adrift.

Hossler then took centre stage as four successive birdies gave him that one shot advantage heading to the 18th - only to learn that Poulter has never gone quietly in his life.

The Los Angeles Rams won the NFC West last season, but they are not resting on their laurels. Said Shurmur on Tuesday: "I think it's important that you get all the information".

Spieth had an eagle, five birdies and just one bogey in his 66, while a bogey at the last cost Grillo outright third place.

Hossler's quest for his first PGA title ended in disaster after finding bunkers with his first two shots when replaying the 18th.

Both players parred Nos.

Poulter's victory came in the wake of a recent decision to use the putter which brought him fame at the 'Miracle of Medinah' in 2012. "Unfortunately, he came out on top this time, but I feel good about my chances moving forward and I feel good that I can contend when it's important".

"He thought he had holed it". Martin Kaymer is playing for the first time since Riviera because of an injury.

The win was his first in six years but Poulter is now fully focused on getting back to his best and earning a place at the Ryder Cup.

"This one's for Katie, my wife", Poulter said. "The last few years have been tough, I've been injured and there's been stuff going on and she's the reason why I'm here". Park and Song shot 5-under 67 in the final round, and Lindberg had a 71. Russell Henley turned in the low round on Sunday with a 6-under 65 that vaulted him into a tie for eighth place.
