Ian Poulter admits he “feels like a cash machine” after losing for the second day running in practice for the Ryder Cup.

Ian Poulter admits he “feels like a cash machine” after losing for the second day running in practice for the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor.
Poulter and Ross Fisher lost almost £400 to Padraig Harrington and Luke Donald yesterday and matters did not improve for the Accenture Match Play champion today.
Paired with Miguel Angel Jimenez on a rainy morning on the Twenty Ten course, Poulter had to dig deep into his pockets once more after the Anglo-Spanish pairing lost to Italian duo Edoardo and Francesco Molinari, the brothers having lost £150 themselves to Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy yesterday.
Poulter reported on his Twitter page: “Practice went well again today. The Italian brothers took Miguel and my cash today. I feel like a cash machine this week.”
Not that Poulter is likely to be in need of an overdraft, however, the 34-year-old having won £880,000 for his victory in Arizona in February which effectively sealed his place on the Ryder Cup team.
Two years ago Poulter needed a wild card from captain Nick Faldo, but fully justified his selection by finishing as Europe’s top points scorer with four points out of five in the defeat at Valhalla.
