WATCH: Ian Poulter Fails To Move Ball Atop Bunker

Ian Poulter was faced with a difficult shot on day two at the US Open and came off red-faced after failing to move his ball.

It can’t quite be described as an air shot because his club appeared to get stuck in the thick grass behind his ball atop one of Pebble Beach’s deep bunkers.

The shot was on the 3rd hole and Poults came off with a quadruple-bogey 8, which put him to four over for the round and outside of the cut mark.

His countryman and friend Justin Rose is faring better though, with Rose currently top of the leaderboard at the time of writing.
