Ian Poulter is back in contention after the second round of the Singapore Open, where he hit an astonishing 29 on the back nine.

The 34-year-old's final nine holes concluded with a putt on the 18th of nearly 100 feet, which Poulter said was longer than anything he can remember holing in the past.

Poulter (left) was delighted with how he recovered his round after going out in 34.

"I knew I had to come back in a good number and I certainly managed that with 29. Six birdies on the back nine and six threes in a row to finish, which was very nice indeed."

Overall, Poulter hit an eight-under-par 63 and is two shots behind the Australian Adam Scott.
