Poulter Shanks Tee Shot, Laughs It Off Like A Pro


For the second consecutive day, a tour pro hit a shank at the Dubai Desert Classic and this one was a dandy. Yesterday, Darren Clarke let one fly and today, prior to play being called for high winds, Ian Poulter just about missed the club face on the par-3 7th hole. The ball sailed wayward to the right leaving him with a tough up and in.

Well played, Ian. That doesn’t mean we aren’t still going to laugh at your expense but well played.
