Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter will be joined at next week's UBS Hong Kong Open by major champions Yang Yong-eun and John Daly. World number 15 Poulter harbours ambitions of scaling the world rankings over the coming months, with the Open among the events he is hoping can put him into contention to challenge Ryder Cup teammate Lee Westwood for the world number one spot. Yang is arguably Asia's biggest draw, having become the first man from the continent to win a major at the 2009 US PGA Championship.
