The stars aligned for Poulter at the final hole in regulation play on Sunday, when Hossler grazed the hole with a birdie attempt that would have clinched victory.

It is all a far cry from last season when the 42-year old thought he had lost his card in America before being handed a reprieve after a recalculation.

Poulter, who held a four-shot lead midway through the final round, trailed by one with three holes remaining after Hossler rattled in four successive birdies from the 12th, but the Englishman holed out a 20-foot birdie putt at the last to extend the tournament. "To come here this week, I was exhausted".

It was the first victory of any kind for Poulter since 2012, and he entered the year playing on a major injury exemption.

Hossler wasn't the only former Longhorn to make a run at the tournament crown on Sunday.

"It is unbelievable, to get this done today to get me to Augusta is wonderful", he told Sky Sports. "I packed my bags obviously to leave on Friday, and, a mental switch, I said to Jamie today, you know what, let's just go play golf, see what happens" Poulter said. It's not very good for your psyche, but to reassess, to reform the team, Paul Dunkley, my agent, has done an incredible job. simplifying my life to get me back on track, it's been fantastic. "So there's life in the old dog yet". His six-under 66 put him in a tie for third with Emiliano Grillo at 16-under 272, and while it wasn't enough to win, the three-time major champion was pleased with what he accomplished as he looks to win a second green jacket next week. "It's a bummer, but I'm very proud of the way I played". It was Spieth's best finish against a full field since he tied for second in the Dell Technologies Championship outside Boston in September.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - Inbee Park and Pernilla Lindberg will return to Mission Hills this morning to decide the LPGA Tour's ANA Inspiration tournament.

They played the par-5 18th four extra times before it was too dark to continue.

Park, Lindberg and Jennifer Song all parred the par-5 18th on the first two extra holes, then Park and Lindberg birdied it the third time while Song was eliminated with a par. Park made a 6-foot par putt, and Lindberg knocked in a 2-footer to match.

The Englishman displayed ferocious competitiveness and his experience at the elite level proved to be the difference as the duo replayed the par-4 final hole with Hossler chipping out of a bunker into the water to all-but end his chances.
