Ian Poulter With Putt of the Year After Three-Putt of the Year
If you didn't catch Ian Poulter's par saving putt on 18, you missed out on a great example of why golf is one of the best sports alive.
Needing a 12-footer to save his par and post seven-over, Poulter rose to the occasion and smashed it in the back of the cup, fist-pumping with a Tiger-like enthusiasm.
A three-putt par on the 17th looked to be the end of him but he saved his par on the 18th hole and is now in the clubhouse rooting for Padraig Harrington to make some bogeys.
He's going to need some help, as Harrington leads by two and has a birdie putt on the 16th hole and the par-5 17th coming up.
