Poulter determined to play

A week after being diagnosed with pneumonia England's Ian Poulter is determined to play in this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral.

"Flying down to Doral in the morning," Poulter said on Twitter.

"It's going to take more than pneumonia to keep me out for long.

"Itching to get back. Mind over matter."

The 36-year-old father of four was due to play with Tiger Woods and Lee Westwood in the first two rounds of last week's Honda Classic, but pulled out before the start and went for a chest X-ray.
