14th green a nightmare for Poulter

Ian Poulter may need a need wedge after slamming his into the ground following a chip shot. 

Poulter's approach shot on 14 rolled off the backside of the green into thick rough.  Left with a difficult lie, Poulter tried blasting it out of the rough but it fell short of the green and rolled back down the very slope that brought him there in the first place.  He then overshot the hole, the ball carrying off the opposite end of the green, leaving him with no angle.  He then played it safe and left himself with a long putt to avoid the slope then slammed his club down in frustration.  His putt for double bogey just missed the edge of the cup, leading to a tap-in for triple bogey.

The only think more dissapointing than Poulter's performance on that hole are his plaid bell bottom pants.

Phil Mickelson sunk an eight-foot putt on the par-5 6th, his fourth birdie in six holes, and is now just three strokes off the lead at even-par.
