"I put myself under pressure, the last couple of days, as well, by saying I want to give him a headache. I've stepped up to the mark and I've shown him exactly what I'm about.

"If he doesn't pick me then that's absolutely fine, but I've shown him everything that I'm about. If he doesn't, then so be it, but if he does, he knows he's going to get exactly that in his team."

Wallace's victory is his fourth in 19 months on the European Tour and lifts him to 16th on the Race to Dubai, as well as moving him inside the world's top 60 for the first time in his career.

"I'm so happy," Wallace added. "Hard work, again, pays off. Determination, grit, everything that I believe takes to win a tournament.

The Ryder Cup is coming...

Latest news ahead of the 42nd Ryder Cup at Le Golf National.

"I said it yesterday: You need to putt well to win. I've found a way to get it done where I put myself under pressure in practice, and then it comes up trumps on a Sunday. Ball-striking can take you there, and then putting takes over."

Watch Thomas Bjorn name his four wildcard picks in a special announcement show, live on Wednesday from 2pm on Sky Sports Golf.
