Poulter's new Ferrari, Spieth targets McIlroy

Poulter expands Ferrari fleet

Ian Poulter is set to expand his fleet of Ferraris with the addition of a $1.35m LaFerrari.

The 38-year-old tweeted: “To say I’m excited is an understatement. Jan 13th I’m going to Maranello for my seat fitting for this beauty LaFerrari .“

The Englishman is a car enthusiast and regularly posts pictures of his numerous automobiles on social media.

Spieth locks sights on McIlroy 

Jordan Spieth is targeting world number one Rory McIlroy following the American's 10 shot victory at the Hero World Challenge.

The 21-year-old led the competition wire-to-wire and it was his second win in a fortnight after picking up the trophy at the Australian Open.

Before the competition in Sydney the Texan said he was “far, far away” from the level of McIlroy, but he now believes he is “just far away”.

“To take it to the next level, to win a major, I’ve got to look to Rory,” Spieth added. “He’s the one we’re all chasing. I did a good job of beginning that chase the past cou­ple weeks.”

Football helps Tiger shed pounds

Tiger Woods lost weight playing football as he battles his way back to match fitness.

The 14-time major champion finished on even-par at the Hero World Championship, 26 shots behind winner Jordan Spieth, but his score would have been better were it not hampered by poor chipping.

“I can basically play with my kids and do whatever I want,” Woods said. “We’ve been playing a ton of soccer in the backyard just about every day.”

Cheyenne out of the Woods

Cheyenne Woods, niece of Tiger Woods, has earned her LPGA Tour card after coming through Q School.

The 24-year-old finished tied-11th on five-under and had to recover in the five round event after posting a 79 in her second outing. 

Bradley makes short work of short stick

Keegan Bradley has adapted swiftly to the short putter after finishing tied-third at the Hero World Championship.

The American previously handled a long putter but has switched to a shorter version ahead of the impending ban in 2016.

“This was one of the biggest tournaments of my career, to be honest with you,” Bradley said. “To show myself that that putter is not an issue. Actually, it was probably the best I’ve putted all year.

He rolled in 24 putts at Isleworth on greens he claimed were “as tough as it gets”.
