Ian Poulter's Use of Wedge on Green Backfires at 2014 PGA Championship

In a bit of a head-scratching move, Ian Poulter decided to chip the ball with a wedge on his third shot of hole No. 9 instead of trying to putt the ball closer. That strategy backfired on the golfer in a big way.

Poulter's chip went nowhere near the hole and ended up off the green. As a result, he double-bogeyed the hole.
