Woosnam already gearing up for 2001 Ryder Cup

One time Masters champion Ian Woosnam is prepared to write off 6 months of the year in order to qualify for the 2001 Ryder Cup at The Belfy.

The 41-year-old missed the defeat at the hands of America at Brookline last September, his first absence since 1983.

"The next six months are about getting my game together for September when the qualification period for the Ryder Cup starts," said Woosnam.

"I've been working very hard on my swing with Pete Cowen for the last three weeks but it's difficult to play and practice so hard at the same time.

"Pete's trying to get me back to coming lower through the ball so I don't keep blocking the ball high and right.

"I've been playing pretty good but to get back to where I want to be I have to putt a lot better. I've been chopping and changing but I'm trying to stick with a short putter for a while and give it a chance to work."

Woosnam will be one of the favourites at this weeks Portuguese Open
