Usually it is Poulter pulling crazy faces during the Ryder Cup, when Europe take on the might of the USA, but here Westwood has beaten him to the punch.

Westwood, the world No 44, was not picked by captain Paul McGinley for the opening fourballs this morning, while Poulter and Stephen Gallacher took on Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed.

 

The talismanic Poulter has been Europe's leading points scorer for the past three Ryder Cups, and helped inspire the astonishing comeback at the "Miracle of Medinah" two years ago, when USA lead 10-6 over night, only for Europe to turn it around on the final day and win the tournament 14.5-13.5.

 

The event at Gleneagles continues until Sunday.
