With his Masters performance and now a win in his Champions Tour debut, should Miguel Angel Jimenez be consideration of Captain Paul McGinley?
Jimenez wants on the team and Derek Lawrenson says the idea doesn't seem as nutty as it did last summer after a win in Hong Kong Open when Jimenez made his ambitions clear.
And now? If the match was taking place tomorrow, you'd want him in the team.
Never mind that he doesn't hit the ball very far and his Ryder Cup record isn't great.
Think about what he does bring to the party, what he'd be like in the team room, the crowd reaction when he walks to the first tee, and the fact that in the only home Ryder Cup he has played in, at Celtic Manor in 2010, he won two matches out of three.
And so, this summer, the world's most interesting golfer - to quote the headline accompanying an American magazine feature - will become the most intriguing sub-plot. Will he achieve his once-impossible dream? One thing's for sure: every overweight, 50-something club golfer from here to California will be cheering him on.
