Ian Poulter has withdrawn from the Honda Classic this afternoon citing illness.
The Englishman, who was due to tee up in the threeball of the day with Tiger Woods and Lee Westwood, confirmed his absence via Twitter at 2pm GMT.
“Sorry guys never been so disappointed in pulling out of a tournament. Never felt so ruff [sic], hope first reserve plays well in a great group today.”
Poulter is understood to have been fighting a 101.2 temperature and will be replaced by first reserve Miguel Angel Carballo from Argentina.
