The 42-year old Poulter signed for card comprised of 11 pars, one bogey, and six birdies – none bigger than a final one on the 72nd hole – en route to a 5-under par 67.

The win earned Poulter $1,260,000 and 500 points, which moves him to No. 20 in the FedExCup standings.

Poulter also scored 48 Official World Golf Rankings points which will bump him into the Top 30 at No. 29 – his highest ranking since 2015.

Beau Hossler, the runner-up, took home a check for $756,000, 300 FedExCup points, and 28.8 OWGR points. Hossler moved to No. 28 in the FedExCup race and 88th in the world rankings – the first time he’s been ranked inside the top 100.
