Poulter looking for consistency
Last updated: 6th February 2013
World number 12 Ian Poulter would like to perform more consistently in stroke play competitions.
Poulter, who blew Webb Simpson away on the final day of the 2012 Ryder Cup, is also a former WGC-Accenture Match Play Champion.
It is quite evident that Poulter thrives in match play situations. However, he admits that he needs to develop similar enthusiasm when playing the more common format of the game.
"I have to sit down and work out what happens to me," Poulter told the Golf Channel this week.
"My mindset changes very much and I need to do that in stroke play. If I can raise my game like I do in match play, then anything is possible," added Poulter, who hasn't played any competitions since the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in January.
Incidentally, the next tournament Poulter is expected to play in is the WGC-Accenture Match Play.
Perhaps the first port of call for Poulter would be to improve his proximity to the hole, especially on the par fives, where he hasn't performed too well, at all.
"I always try to lay up to a certain number (on the par 5s) and that doesn't work," admitted Poulter.
"If my scoring clubs are from 100 to 150 yards, and that's where you make most of your birdies, then if that proximity is closer I will become a better player," added Poulter.
