SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Ian Poulter had quite the week at TPC Scottsdale's notorious par-3 16th.

During his pro-am round on Wednesday, Poulter thought he made his birdie putt and gave it an early walk.


Then in Round 1, Poulter's 7-foot par putt lipped out, which provided the crowd around the rowdy par 3 with plenty of ammo to heckle the European Ryder Cup star.

On Friday, Poulter's tee shot landed 7 feet from the hole and this time he tried to hole the putt one-handed. He missed.

After missing the cut at 4 over par, Poulter tweeted his explanation for trying the putt with one hand.
