VIDEO: Ian Poulter putts one-handed at Phoenix Open


Ian Poulter putted one-handed on Friday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and it made sense to probably no one who saw it but Poulter himself.

After hitting his tee shot to 6 feet and impressing the crowd at the festival par-3 16th at TPC Scottsdale, Poulter putted one-handed for birdie. Yup. And he missed.

Believe it or not, there was a method to Poulter's madness, which he explained on Twitter after the round.

Poulter probably started doing it in the first place because he was well off the projected cut line. And he never got all that close to it, finishing at 4-over 146 and missing the cut by four shots.
