Poulter undecided over US Open qualifying, but hopes it won't be needed

Poulter undecided over US Open qualifying, but hopes it won't be needed

One powerful Swede is in poll position to change that.

Sweden's Jonas Carlsson is out in front on his own on six-under, with Scotland's Scott Jamieson, Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand and Italy's Francesco Molinari one shot behind. Stenson is part of large group in fifth place at 4-under after a 68. It was his first win since 2004 at the PGA Tour's Buick Invitational.

The 30-year-old picked up five strokes in a blistering outward half of 30 before three back-nine birdies were partially offset by bogeys at the 10th and 18th. The Open champion never looked like contending at Sawgrass.

"I feel like I've been working hard on my swing", Carlsson said.

"Obviously, this week is a big week and I've always had that goal in mind that this is going to be a tournament to get it around no matter what", Carlsson said.

All 18 greens have been reseeded and just as we saw at Augusta, sub air technology has been installed under every putting surface to control moisture, although given the outstanding weather forecast this week, I'm pleased to say that shouldn't be necessary. Prior to that he was tied for 5th at the WGC Mexico and led the field at Wells Fargo going in to the fourth round, and despite a disappointing T31 finish, Noren has clearly regained some of the form that led him to three European Tour victories in 2016.

"I gave myself a lot of chances coming in". You'll have to get up early for this one here in the USA, but any time Rory McIlroy's name is attached to a tournament, you know it has a chance to be great.

Labour branded 'shambolic' as Corbyn fails to commit to Trident
The Labour leader said wars have increased insecurity "at home", and, "they have caused destabilization and devastation overseas". Jeremy Corbyn's manifesto for the general election is "Labour's most socialist policies for a generation", says The Times .

"It was awesome", Carlsson said.

The 2014 winning Ryder Cup captain had looked forward to the tournament with added anticipation as he was involved with Thomas Bjorn, the 2018 European Ryder Cup captain, in advising on the extensive upgrades to the West Course at Wentworth through the a year ago. "Just a great city and a great school".

"We had pretty serious conversations with (Wentworth owners) Reignwood and BMW, who were concerned whether we would be able to continue with the BMW PGA Championship here if we didn't make significant improvements to the golf course".

Luke Donald has a habit of playing the same course well each year and he has enjoyed a very good record at Wentworth in the past including two wins a runner-up and a 3rd place finish.

Open Championship (July 20-23): The Open returns to Royal Birkdale where Padraig Harrington took down Sergio Garcia in 2008.

Stenson birdied four of his last eight holes after starting with 11 straight pars on just his second appearance in the event in the last seven years, while Lee Westwood carded a 70 on his 24th consecutive appearance.
