Ian Poulter Goes Way Out On A Limb And Predicts That Tiger Woods Won’t Finish In The Top 5 At The Masters

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down there Ian. Do you even understand what you’re saying?

You are really predicting that a golfer that has struggled for more than a year will continue to struggle and not contend at the Masters?

Very bold, Ian. Very bold.

“I don’t think he’ll finish in the top 5,” Poulter said, citing Woods’ play at the World Golf Championships at Doral four weeks ago.

“The shots he was hitting at Doral, they were very inconsistent,” Poulter said. “You can’t afford to hit shots like that on this golf course and get away with it. I don’t think you want to rely on your short game that much around this place.”

Don’t dismiss this folks. This is groundbreaking stuff.

Give us more, Ian.

“You can never rule him out, can you?” Poulter said. “He has such an incredible record on this golf course. He has won by plenty and won it quite a few times. We’ve seen him hit the shots in various situations when he has put himself in trouble. And he has one of the best short games in the world; that will not disappear from him.

“When he gets in position where he’s close, he generally holes putts at the right time. He hasn’t done it for a while, but I think if he starts to hole the putts at the right time then you will see the Tiger of old come out. And that’s dangerous. But I don’t see it this week.”

Sorry guys. Sorry Tiger. Ian just doesn’t see it. And when a man goes this far out on a limb, we have to listen, right?
