Ian Poulter is brash, cocky, supremely confident and thoroughly engaging. He's also the 2010 UBS Hong Kong Open champion and, if he's to be believed, something of a psychic. "I knew I was going to win here," said Poulter, moments after sealing the title with a tournament record total of 258 (22-under-par). "I told Graeme McDowell at the beginning of the week that I was going to win because I've been playing some really good golf recently. I felt comfortable the whole day, the way I was hitting it, "added Poulter, who scooped over US$400,000 for his 10th European Tour victory. "I was hitting it inside 12 feet at pretty much every hole out there and knew if I kept doing that I would be very tough to beat."
That's for sure – and in fairness to the now world number 10, he tweeted as much to his one million plus followers after coming close at the Singapore Open the week before.
