Poulter Plans to Play Hyundai

Mayan golf schedules may have been disrupted when the world didn't end as scheduled on 21 December 2012, but Ian Poulter went ahead and made reservations for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in 2013 anyway.

I don't know how many of the "big names" are going to show, but is already listing a few of the confirmed players like Snedeker and Dufner. (There's no complete field listing yet. I checked.) Still, this bodes well for the ToC.

As we all know, it's become something of a trend for the top players to skip the ToC each year. Poults did play there back in 2011, but generally he skips it as well. For him to come back is important because, whether he's high in the OWGR or not, he's a big name in all the ways that matter to golf fans. (Of course, his game is somewhat apocalyptic as well. Just ask the US Ryder Cup team.)

Will Tiger, Phil, or Rory play? I'm inclined to guess that they won't. Still, if the other major names in the game show up in Hawaii, it will both help the Tour's relationship with its sponsors and grab the fans' attention early in 2013.

For those of you who were disappointed not to be annihilated Friday in true blockbuster film style, I hope this gives you something to look forward to.
