Ian Poulter has won the Houston Open, and a place in the Masters, in the first hole of the playoff against Beau Hossler.
Poulter had a 2-shot lead at the turn when Hossler played four straight birdies with three holes still to play. Poulter held his nerve and birdied the last hole to force a sudden-death playoff then watched as Hossler triple-bogeyed the first hole.
This is Poulter's first win in six years.
Poulter and Hossler finished at 19-under 269, Jordan Spieth and Emiliano Grillo came in third at 16-under and Sam Ryder finished fifth at 15-under.
Poulter moves up from 51 to 29 this week, Hossler up from 214 to 88, Spieth stays at number 4, Grillo moves up six places to 69 and Ryder moves to 226 from 321.
