As they competed in the Asian Tour's International Series, Ian Poulter and his son Luke showed their brilliance. Poulter Ian came runner-up after a final round 64 for a great nine-under total. A bigger reason for Ian to be happy is probably the accomplishment of his son Luke, 19, who finished level par to end up tied 22nd.
"It’s been amazing,” Luke said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com! “I beat him [Ian Poulter] one of the days, it was really cool and my main goal was to try and beat him this week, but, he got me by nine!” Ian Poulter revealed the recipe for his great performance.
“I just kind of found the key to hitting a few putts on these greens, which I didn’t have the first three days. And you know, when you do that and you play good golf like I played the first three days, then you’re going to be able to make some birdies.
I made quite a few ‘birds’."
American Andy Ogletree amazes everyone with his performances, given that he is the leader at the Asian Tour. Graeme McDowell spoke to the media about how talented Andy is.
His arrival at LIV Golf was not met with positive reactions, but despite everything, Ogletree showed what kind of star he really is. "He was the US Amateur Champion of course but there's a bedding in period to step up the pro golf.
Going straight into LIV Golf was like going into the lion’s den. There was obviously a lot of scrutiny, a lot of pressure, a lot of eyeballs, a lot of kind of negativity, and LIV was maybe a hard start for him in the beginning.
But having the opportunity to play on the Asian Tour, playing as well as he has, he’s gone from strength-to-strength. It’s great to see him playing well and if he makes it, he’ll be a great addition to LIV.
He’s clearly a young and upcoming superstar and it will be super interesting to see which team he fits into and how he does when he comes back out to play."
