1 player, Rory McIlroy, birdied the last five holes to keep the squad alive and help set up the club's improbable win the following day.
"When Poults gets that look in his eyes, especially the week of the Ryder Cup, it’s really impressive," McIlroy has stated.
For Poulter, the Ryder Cup success has helped offset his inability so far to win a Major tournament. Not that he hasn't come close: In 2009,
he finished second at the Players Championship, and then, three years later, placed seventh at the Masters.
Coupled with his golf game, Poulter has also introduced his own sense of style to the course. At the 2004 Open Championship, the golfer made headlines when he played the first round wearing Union Jack Trousers, which he later donated for auction for an event benefitting the Yorkville Children's Hospital in Scotland. He has since gone on to develop his own clothing line. Poulter also frequently dons colorful hairstyles.
Poulter, who has several homes, lives with his wife, Katie, and their four children in Buckinghamshire, South East England.
