Irish impact in the Ryder Cup

The current crop have a wealth of experience to their names, with Northern Ireland's Clarke (far left) ever-present since his 1997 debut at Valderrama.

Harrington (centre) joined the party at the infamous Battle of Brookline in 1999, beating Mark O'Meara in the singles, and the Dubliner has become a fixture for Europe since then.

And McGinley played in his first Ryder Cup at The Belfry in 2002.

Little did he know what an impact he would have on the competition that year.
