Ian Poulter is adamant that he’ll be teeing it up in the 2016 Ryder Cup – despite having not won since November 2012.


The 40-year-old currently sits way down the European Ryder Cup points lists – 29th in European and 35th in World – but believes he’ll be up there come the cut off point as he bids to compete in his fifth consecutive match.
"I will make this team" - Ian Poulter

“I will make the team,” Poulter said in a short interview with Brian Wacker of the PGA Tour. “That's all I'm going to say. I'll make it my duty to play well enough to make the team. We're not at the stage of picks. I'm adamant to say that I will make this team.”

The Englishman has had to rely on a pick for the past two Ryder Cups and his experience is clearly valued by upcoming captain Darren Clarke, who chose him and Lee Westwood as picks to help and inexperienced European side to a landslide EurAsia Cup victory last month.

Poulter had won 12 and lost just three of his Ryder Cup matches up until Gleneagles in 2014, where he failed to win in three attempts, halving twice and losing alongside Stephen Gallacher to Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed in the Friday morning fourballs.
