No-one has come from that far back to win a PGA Tour event in the last 35 years - until now!

"Last week was painful".

Victory would be particularly sweet for Poulter, who was told last week that he had qualified for the Masters after reaching the last eight of the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play, only to be told just before his quarter-final that there had been a miscalculation.

A group of four players, including Ireland's Paul Dunne, were two shots off the lead.

Ian Poulter produced a sensational victory at the Houston Open in Texas on Sunday by beating Beau Hossler in a play-off to secure his place at this week's Masters.

And it was down to two when Poulter suffered his first/only wobble at the par three ninth.

"I got the best of Ian Poulter today and he got the best of me", said Hossler.

Ibrahimovic's two strikes also continued an extraordinary run of scoring on his debut for every club he has ever played for. In the 77th minute, Ibrahimovic lashed home a 40-metre volley to make it 3-3 at the StubHub Center.

"It is wonderful, to get this done today to get me to Augusta is awesome", he told Sky Sports.

Poulter - who earned his fourth PGA Tour win - birdied the par-four 18th hole in regulation to force a playoff.

Spieth holed a 15-footer at the first and fired five birdies in a six-hole stretch around the turn to move up the leaderboard, with his only blemish coming via a three-putt at the par-three 16th.

And just as he has done so often in the Ryder Cup, the English ace poured it into the middle of the hole, prompting the chest-pumping, fist-pumping celebration we have seen so often in European clours over the years.

It had looked like it was slipping away from Poulter on the back nine as Hossler made four straight birdies to take a one-shot lead before the Englishman changed the momentum with the putt on the final green. "Unfortunately, he came out on top this time, but I feel good about my chances moving forward and I feel good that I can contend when it's important".

"This one is for my wife Katie".

Argentinian Grillo bogeyed the last to finish alongside three-time major championship victor Spieth at 16 under, with American Sam Ryder one shot further adrift. "The last few years have been tough, I've been injured and there's been stuff going on and she's the reason why I'm here". He went on to win at Augusta that year.
