The Outlook

Poulter is obviously playing some very strong golf right now and will carry momentum into this week. However, we have to wonder whether a title contention at Firestone over the weekend drained some mental energy for a guy who’s already played a lot of golf this year. There’s a fine line between carrying that momentum and burning too much fuel. Poulter hopes to be on the positive side of that line.
