World Match Play champ Ian Poulter told Reuters it's time for a change in the European Ryder Cup Qualifying system. In recent Ryder Cups, players with more world points were better served than those with Euro Tour points, a method that Poulter feels needs to be reversed.

"Looking at the last two Ryder Cups, if you took the Race to Dubai European points first and the world ranking points list second you would get the strongest side. But whether or not that happens (next year) we'll have to wait and see.
"The European Tour puts so much into the Ryder Cup that perhaps the emphasis should be on the European Tour and guys should show a commitment to this tour and be rewarded accordingly. But it's a difficult one. You want the 12 best players. Golf is such a global game now, whether you're a European Tour player full-time or not, or you're a PGA Tour member or a dual member, you're still going to play the majors and WGCs and the best events around the world."
