Ian Poulter misses the cut at Valero

And loses his PGA Tour Card

Ian Poulter has lost his PGA Tour card after signing for a second round 71 to miss the cut at the Valero Texas Open.

Poulter needed to earn just over $30,000 this week, equivalent to a solo 36th place or better, to guarantee playing privileges for the remainder of the season.

The Englishman had a rollercoaster front nine, making four birdies and three bogeys to go out in 35, but failed to make a single birdie on the back nine leaving Poulter on a two–over–par total.

Needing an eagle on the 18th hole, Poulter hit his approach shot at the par–5 into the water, and thus sealed his fate. With the current projected cut at level par, it would require a miracle for Poulter to get through to the weekend.


It’s not all doom and gloom though, as Poulter will still be eligible to play in PGA Tour events if given sponsors’ invitations. Next week he will tee it up in the new format Zurich Classic, where he will pair up with Aussie Geoff Ogilvy.
