Poulter seeks final piece in major puzzle

(Reuters) – Still feeling a little giddy after a barn-storming finish to his 2012 campaign, Ian Poulter is itching to plug the only hole in his otherwise glittering career resume by winning a major championship.

The fashion-conscious Englishman, widely regarded as one of the best putters in the game, has achieved virtually everything else in professional golf and says landing one of the four majors would fulfil a long cherished dream.

Poulter will launch his 2013 campaign this week at the PGA Tour’s season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii and readily admits he has been unable to work out the final piece of the major puzzle.

“I don’t know what it takes,” the flamboyant Englishman told Reuters in a recent interview. “If it means taking off 20 weeks before playing in a major, then I would take 20 weeks off. If it means playing five in a row to win one, then I would do that. “I’ve tried a lot of things but I just need to keep doing what I am doing, to be honest with you. I just need to keep working on the same things.

“You need to ride a bit of luck in these majors at certain times to be able to pick one up. No question, I’d really love to win one.”

Poulter rebounded from a slow start to last season with a spectacular run of success and consistency that included three top-10 finishes in the majors and his second World Golf Championships (WGC) crown.
