Ian Poulter isn't just a gimmicky clothes horse any more. The Englishman is not just an eccentric pretty good player. He's a contender at major championships. He is having the best day on the course today, he's 4 under for the day, 8 under for the Masters. He's tied with countryman Lee Westwood.

David Feherty, announcing on the internal feed, said of Poulter's wardrobe, "Somewhere at a Motel 6, the drapery is missing."

Ricky Barnes and Phil Mickelson are 6 under, Tiger is 5 under after a birdie on the par 5 13th.
