Poulter stalls as Ogilvy flys at JBWere Australian Masters December 17 2011

Ian Poulter stalls in the third round of the JBWere Australian Masters shooting -2 69 for a total score of -11, two shots adrift of the leader Geoff Ogilvy. Geoff fired in a course record -8  under the card 63, to finish with a total of -13, and was a very happy man at the end. Ian on the other hand was concerned that he and his caddy could not figure out which way the wind was coming from, which was responsible for him firing a couple of approach shots through the green. Geoff with his local knowledge of the course did not seem to be affected at all, and shooting a brilliant course record. The last day is set up for an exciting finish as Ian and Geoff will be in the last group each vying for the coveted gold jacket, Ian stating that the said jacket would fit in well with some of the other items in his wardrobe. Luke Donald still struggled with the course, finishing at a modest -5 for the tournament, eight shots adrift of leader Ogilvy, even a course record tomorrow would not help him to win, but I would still bet that he finishes in the top ten, something he has done all year. That is the consistency that has enabled him to remain world number one and to top the money charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
