Despite blustery conditions that sent scores soaring, Ian Poulter posted his second straight sub par round at The Ocean Course, Kiawah Island on Friday and looked comfortable doing so. His second round 71 was well below the field average of just below 78, a scoring average that was the toughest in the history of the PGA Championship.
How tough was it out there? There were more rounds in the 90's than there were in the 60's. WOW!
Ian's steady tee to green play with his Cobra equipment from his ZL Encore White driver off the tee to his precise iron shots with his S3 Pro irons have allowed him to be one of only two players in the 156 player field to better Kiawah's often brutal par 72 both days.
Beyond his obvious comfort with his Adjustable Flight technology (AFT) setting in his ZL Encore, Poults is clearly comfortable with his AMP fairway metal as well as his Baffler Rail hybrid, two clubs which have become crucial with ball control at an absolute premium at the Ocean Course.
With the third round on the horizon Saturday, look for Poults to be ready for the challenge.
With longer, more forgiving technology in his bag, why wouldn't he be?
