Ian Poulter: just one par on the front nine

Ian Poulter was frustrated at not being closer to the pace after finishing the third round of the Masters on two under par.

The Englishman, who had opened his campaign at Augusta National with two level-par 72s, had an eventful front nine with four birdies, four bogeys and just the one par.

He was then two under over the back nine after birdieing the two par fives - 13 and 15 - to card a two-under 70.

"The front nine was a little rollercoaster ride," he said. "Having six birdies and only shooting two under par is a little bit frustrating to be honest. But I am on the board and I guess tomorrow by the back nine hopefully I can be in a bright position.

"I'm looking forward to tomorrow. We just have to wait and see which holes they let us be aggressive on and the other holes you just have to be careful.

"I will have to play well for sure and make birdies when I get my chances."
