WITH one of golf's marquee tournaments underway, this graphic highlight's the impressive success of "Europe's Finest", Ian Poulter, in the Ryder Cup.

A total of 28 matches, each worth one point, will take place over the next three days.

That means the first team to reach 14.5 points will win the Ryder Cup - or if it remains drawn USA will retain the title after the 

European captain Thomas Bjorn has left Ryder Cup talisman Ian Poulter out of the first session of the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Paris.

But Poulter will feature heavily over the weekend before Sunday night's conclusion, and he will be hoping he can recreate his previous magic to see Europe end the weekend on top. 

Any golf fan will have very fond memories of the Miracle at Medinah in 2012 where Poulter won all four of his matches, recording give consecutive birdies. 

Check out the graphic above for some statistics on Poulter's cup history, and let us know your predictions for the weekend.
