Ian Poulter secured a place at the Masters after a dramatic play-off victory over Beau Hossler at the Houston Open in Texas.

The 42-year-old Englishman had forced a sudden death play-off after he sank a lengthy birdie putt at the 18th to finish at 19 under alongside Hossler.

The pair replayed the par-four final hole and American Hossler, 23, chipped out of a bunker into the water.

Poulter then kept his cool and two-putted for par to secure victory.

The event was Poulter's last remaining chance to qualify for the tournament in Augusta which starts on Thursday.
