Ian Poulter didn't let his first-round loss to Rickie Fowler at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship ruin his week. He jetted on back to Florida and spent Sunday at the Daytona 500. Poults, a well-known exotic car collector, said he was invited to attend as an honorary race official, took a spin in one of the pace cars and spent much of the day down in pit lane.
And while the final match of the Accenture Match Play turned out to be one for the ages, Poulter — at least of this writing — hasn't seen a whole lot of racing, thanks to an afternoon-long rain delay. The prospects for getting in some more action tonight look better, though, so hopefully for everyone involved at Daytona, the weather will cooperate.
Anyway, here's a recap of Poulter's day at the races, culled from his Twitter account. You can see even more images on his Instagram page:
