Paul Lawrie: Will be playing in just his second Ryder Cup and first since 1999.
For nearly 10 years the 43-year-old Lawrie was in something of a career slump.
That's a relative term because he chugged along on the European Tour, retaining his card, but he couldn't find the win.
It was a surprise because having won the 1999 Open Championship, and followed that up with a stunning Ryder Cup debut in the same year, he looked set to become a star of the European game. He did win another two titles, but then he moved to the sidelines.
However, the last two years have been a career Indian summer with wins in the 2011 Open de Andalucia, February's Qatar Masters and last month's Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.
Always a fine striker of the ball and a noted scrambler, he has recovered his putting touch and it has transformed his game.
He will relish a return to Ryder Cup duty having had that superb debut and waited 13 years to have another go!
In 1999 he won two-and-a-half points from four matches playing alongside Colin Montgomerie, and then defeated Jeff Maggert 4&3 on a final day when the Europeans were on the wrong end of an infamous US fightback.
