Ian Poulter produced a quick finish to his season at the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai as he flew around the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates in just 142 minutes.

Eddie Pepperell's withdrawal with a back injury earlier in the week meant that the field was left with an odd number at the eighth Rolex Series event of the season and at six over after three rounds, Poulter was the odd man out on Sunday morning.

After literally running off the first tee at 7.00am, he was back in the clubhouse before 09.30, carding a 69 with five birdies and two bogeys.

“I'm lying last, it's just a carefree day,” he said. “It didn't matter where I finished in relative terms, I could have shot seven under and moved forward six or seven places.

“It's just quite enjoyable to get out there and get it done and get back in for breakfast.

“I made a couple of birdies. I made Terry forward caddie on a couple of holes so I took the putter to the green and allowed him to go to the next fairway and we played at a decent pace.

“I'm a quick player, I don't like slow play, so today was quite refreshing to get out there and get it done.”
