Swing Sequence: Ian Poulter

Sights on St. Andrews

The Friday before I went to the Singapore Open last October, I was given a new shaft for my driver. I took 10 swings with it, absolutely loved it, and went out and won the event. The club has been in the bag ever since. Lately I've been playing really solid, and a big part of that is getting the ball in play. I really believe I won the WGC-Accenture Match Play in February by keeping my tee shots in the fairway. The WGC win is massive for me. To finally win on the PGA Tour, it answers a lot of questions for me and, I guess, for a lot of other people. Now the next thing is a major. I'm English, so to win the Open Championship this year at St. Andrews would be the biggest one I could possibly get.
