Life is a lot easier when you play badly and then all of a sudden you get in contention and win one. No one gets on your back. When you finish runner-up seven times, everyone is asking, 'Why aren't you winning?' It's much more fun when you jump into a win out of the blue. It's a much tougher game when you play consistently well.

The Ryder Cup was amazing - I watched it avidly and was very excited and nervous at home this weekend! I think the win and how the team played, will inspire all European golfers going forward. I personally feel a huge buzz to get out on the golf course myself and will do so at this week's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.
