Fired up: Graeme McDowell is hoping to kickstart his 2021 season

Graeme McDowell has insisted that making the European team for September's Ryder Cup is still his main goal for 2021 as he prepares to start the defence of his Saudi International title today.

The Rathmore man has played in four Ryder Cups - losing on his debut in 2008 but winning in each of 2010, 2012 and 2014 - but his hunger to be part of the team that will take on hosts the United States of America at Whistling Straits hasn't been dampened.

Indeed, if anything, being a non-playing captain at the 2018 event at Le Golf National in France, where Europe won back the trophy convincingly, has reignited his desire to be teeing it up at this year's rearranged event, which was due to be played last year but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
