Has earned the nickname of ’Mr Ryder Cup’ and it is not difficult to see why. Has twice needed a wild card, including in 2012, but has raised his game on every occasion and none more so than at Medinah. Won all four of his matches and famously birdied the last five holes alongside Rory McIlroy to beat Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson in the Saturday fourballs, after which he told his team-mates ’We have a pulse.’ Also beat Webb Simpson in the singles to take his record to 12 wins from 15 matches.
