Poulter plays 'flawless' golf to win Australian Masters

7:08 am on 19 December 2011

The English golfer Ian Poulter shot a near-perfect four-under-par 67 in windy conditions to reel in overnight leader and local hope Geoff Ogilvy to win the Australian Masters by three strokes.

The much-anticipated final round shoot-out between the Briton and the Australian failed to materialise as Ogilvy surrendered his two-stroke overnight lead on the first hole and plunged to third after wilting with a bogey-strewn back nine.

Landing his tee-shot on the green of the driveable par-four, Poulter drilled a 15-foot putt for eagle to draw level with Ogilvy on 13-under, and the flamboyant Englishman says that was the turning point.


IN: I think it was...

OUT: ...was flawless golf.

DUR: 20 secs.

Ian Poulter.
