GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Ian Poulter has been called an incomplete golfer because of his perceived inadequacies from tee to green. In the U.S., he was 181st in greens in regulation, but that separates him from the leader in GIRs by just seven greens a week, and Poulter more than makes up for this deficiency with brilliant putting. He was first on Tour from 15-20 feet in 2010, and he has the ability to handle the big moment. His prodigious skills, colorful personality, quick wit and bold predictions make him indispensable in the world of golf.
