Ian Poulter loses PGA Tour card after missing cut at the Valero Texas Open

Ian Poulter has lost his PGA Tour card after another disappointing outing saw the Englishman miss the cut at this year’s Valero Texas Open.

Poulter is a two-time winner on Tour, but was unable to bank the £23,905 necessary by finishing in the top 30. The loss leaves him considering a very uncertain future.

The 41-year-old has been playing on a medical exemption following a foot operation last year, but that has now expired, leaving the Ryder Cup stalwart to earn his card again.

Poulter will now require an invitation if he is to appear on the PGA circuit before working on earning his card back, which could take a while.

Tweeting after his round, Poulter wrote: "The best thing about golf is it gives you what you deserve. Also, when the chips are down, you find out who your real friends really are !!!!!"
