Former Ryder Cup golfer, Howard Clark, has called on every man to do his duty for Europe, when they take on the Americans in their own back garden this weekend.
Having played in the competition between 1977 and 1995, the Englishman knows what the event is all about; he has highlighted that some of the lesser names will have to come to the fore at the Medinah Country Club.
There has been plenty of talk about the likes of Rory McIlroy, Luke Donald, and Graeme McDowell on Betfair, who of course will have a major impact on the result come Sunday.
However, Clark is more interested in how the supporting cast play their roles on the big occasion.
He told Sky Sports Radio: "I think the lower end of players (in the European team) need to play a little bit higher than they are at the moment.
"Somebody like Martin Kaymer, Paul Lawrie, Peter Hanson, Francesco Molinari, Nicolas Colsaerts, they're all going to have to pull their weight this week.
"I think it's that lower order, if you can call it that, that are going to have to stand up and be counted.”
Clark has also said he thinks captain, Jose Maria Olazabal, will have a big part to play and believes that the Spaniard will be a big boost for the European team.
The skipper’s presence alone will be priceless for the visitors, who will have to be at the top of their game if they are to retain the title they won at Celtic Manor two years ago.
