Poulter claims Volvo World Matchplay

Ian Poulter, famed for his loud golf clothing, let his golf do the talking in Andalucia this week and came away with a win from the Volvo World Matchplay Championship.

The win over world number two Luke Donald in the final was particularly special for Poulter as he was also celebrating his son Luke's seventh birthday.

"I thought it would be pretty special to win this today," Poulter said.

"I finally started holing some putts. I've been frustrated for a few months and you have to hole putts to win."

The victory seemed unlikely earlier in the week as Poulter halved both of his pool matches and was forced to play to the final hole and further in all of his knockout games.

He overcame Francesco Molinari in a tight match and was forced into a sudden death playoff against Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts in the semi-final.

Donald, who remains in the world number two spot behind Lee Westwood, said: "It was disappointing - I ran out of steam a bit and didn't take the opportunities I had."
