This looks all too familiar.
Friday, at the Dubai Desert Classic, Ian Poulter lined up for his tee shot on the par-3 seventh, a straight shot over a water hazard, and did this:
Yikes. We could laugh if we hadn't done this same thing a hundered times.
Play was suspended, but Poulter was able to poke fun at himself after the shot.
It's a nicer angle to the pin from over there.. nothing wrong with a weekly shank.... https://t.co/debxLPIDz0— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) February 3, 2017
The shank came just a day after Darren Clarke attempted a flop shot that careened sideways and into a bunker. Is there a daily quota for shanks at the Dubai Desert Classic?
