There are a ton of guys worthy of being on the European Ryder Cup team, and I think I'm one of them. It's one of my biggest motivators in 2012. I'm not thinking about it on the course, but it would be an honor to represent Scotland and help Europe defend its title this year at Medinah. This group of players is one of the strongest Europe has had, so it would be great to just be a part of that effort.
