Poulter has previously made no secret of his dislike for Wentworth, especially after the controversial redesign by Ernie Els in 2010.

The 12-time European Tour victor, who missed four months of last season due to a foot injury, was back to his best when finishing tied second at The Players Championship in America recently.

Already this season he has €189,250 to find himself sandwiched in 63rd place in the current Race to Dubai standings by European Tour title winners in Francesco Molinari and Andrew Sullivan.

"I can't emphasise how big a week it was", he added.

That would mean The Players would earn European Tour members points on their Tour, while the BMW PGA Championship would award FedEx Cup points. "I'd think you have to be 15-under par this year to have a chance". I don't know what (the European Tour) need to do to attract more USA players to come, maybe they don't want to.

"There were three tee shots where I didn't quite commit to them and that's a hangover from the tough spell of golf I have been having". This year's Abu Dhabi Champion finished second in the WGC Mexico to Dustin Johnson and picked up another runner-up at the Shenzhen International, which was the last tournament he played in prior to this one.

"US Open qualifying is a last resort and I am not sure if I will need that resort and I am still not sure if I am going to go over and try and qualify". I've been a good ball-striker a long time, but if you're not a great putter you're not going to win a lot. "I'm personally very pleased that it has been changed". This time it's the ribs and they are evil.

Back Tommy Fleetwood each-way @ 30/1 - I've always been a big Fleetwood fan and it's been fantastic to see him back to top form this year with five top-10s including a victory and two runners-up finishes.

"It takes me back and it sort of makes me realise how far I've come, as well, to turn up at this tournament and be a legitimate contender for it". "There's still a premium on hitting fairways because I don't think you can hold the greens with a mid-iron from the rough". I knew there would be a little down spell but my game is still there and I look forward to a massive summer.

"I didn't have any confidence from inside four or five feet but I can't blame the greens. suppose it's just a case of me getting used to them", he told reporters. It's got some pretty good tough par-3s, the par-5s if I drive it really well I can get home to majority.

"I hadn't been feeling like I needed to on the course". And I can classify myself as not a great putter.
