Poulter fit to play in British Open

Europe's Ryder Cup hero Ian Poulter has received the all-clear on his damaged wrist, and will compete in this week's British Open at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

The 38-year-old Englishman underwent an MRI scan in Leeds on Monday after being hurt in the Scottish Open at Royal Aberdeen last week.

"Great news with the wrist," Poulter said on his official Twitter account yesterday.

"On impact I've jarred it and an old ganglion cyst has shown itself.

"No tendon damage. Painkillers and crack on."

Poulter jarred his wrist on the 14th and 18th holes at Royal Aberdeen.

He missed the cut at the British Open warm-up event after rounds of 73 and 74 left him on 147, five over par. - Reuters.
