Toms Takeover and Poulter’s Plummet

I was excited for Choi to win last week but i’m also happy to see that The Players runner-up David Toms was finally able to have his moment in the sun. After coming out of the gate with matching scores of 62 (course record 61 I believe). Saturday was a bit shaky taking a 74 it didn’t look good going into Sunday’s finals. Not until the 11th hole par 5 Toms holed out from 83 yards away making an eagle with his wedge. This was an important victory for Toms not only because of his devastating loss last week at The Players but his 5 year dry streak not having won a tournament since 2006’s Sony Open.

During the Volvo World Match Play it was a surprising victory from the tenacious Twitterer Ian Poulter. Taking down fellow Englishman Luke Donald 2&1 (also denying him the No. 1 ranking). However, it does put Ian inside the top 15 lifting him from his #22 position. He had some memorable moments including a 10 footer he holed but by far the most entertaining is below.

    Yes it was great to see Toms win after coming so close the previous week. The Englishmen really seem to be playing the match play format so much better than anyone else in world golf. I think Poulter, Donald and Casey have all won a match play tournament in the last 12 months.
