GIF: From the green, Ian Poulter chips his ball back into the fairway

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

Jack Nicklaus doesn't like people chipping on his greens, but Ian Poulter doesn't seem to mind.

From nearly 80 feet away on Valhalla's ninth hole, Poulter opted to chip his third shot from the green but gave it too much gas. The ball trickled down the slope in front of the green and left him an actual chip for his fourth shot. He put that one to about 15 feet and missed the bogey putt for a double-bogey 6, moving him to one over for the day and two under for the tournament through 27 holes.
