ahead of the squad an­nounce­ment next month.

Af­ter win­ning his first Euro­pean Tour event since 2007 with vic­tory at the Made in Den­mark event on Sun­day, War­ren ad­mit­ted he hasn’t com­pletely given up on mak­ing one of the big­gest events in golf.

He said: “For the whole sea­son I’ve not been in a po­si­tion where I would con­sider my­self to be in with a re­al­is­tic chance, so mak­ing the team has never re­ally come into my think­ing be­fore.

“But if I go to Italy and win then you never know be­cause Paul (McGin­ley) has said he wants peo­ple who are in form go­ing into the Ry­der Cup, so we’ll see.

“Paul knows I’ve got a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence on the course at Gle­nea­gles, but there’s so many strong can­di­dates I think I would be down the list.

“Even if I won in Italy I’m not sure it would be enough, but it would be nice to give him some­thing to think about.”

McGin­ley will an­nounce his three cap­tain’s picks on Septem­ber 2 af­ter the con­clu­sion of the Ital­ian Open.

The 33-year-old won the Made In Den­mark event in Aal­borg to claim his first ti­tle since win­ning the John­nie Walker Cham­pi­onship at Gle­nea­gles – home to this year’s Ry­der Cup – back in 2007.
