Top 12 Ian Poulter Ryder Cup Facial Expressions

Ian Poulter has a colourful and illustrious history in the  Ryder Cup and his passion for golf's biggest event cannot be matched.

In recent years, he's established himself as an all-time legend in the biennial competition with a series of unbelievable performances.

In five Ryder Cups, he's won 12 of his 18 matches - a record that no one else can come close to matching in the modern era.

In 2012 at Medinah, he galvanised the European side with a phenomenal performance during the Saturday fourballs to restore some genuine hope before beating Webb Simpson in the singles - his fourth consecutive singles win, having defeated Chris Riley in 2004, Steve Stricker in 2008 and Matt Kuchar in 2012.

Above, you can see some of our favourite images of the eye-popping Poulter during his staggering Ryder Cup career.

This year at Hazeltine he'll be a vice captain, having made himself unavailable due to a foot injury.
