The Swede has appeared at the tournament on two previous occasions, having earned a relatively modest three points from a possible seven.
However, after he qualified for a place on the European team for a third time earlier this year, Stenson is eager to put more points on the board in Scotland.
"It's been a while. I played in 2006 and 2008 but I never felt like I was done," Sky Sports News quotes the 38-year-old as saying. "I wanted to get the European shirt on at least once more, and here we are. I'm delighted with that.
"Hopefully I'll play a bigger role in terms of the points that I can bring to the team. I got one-and-a-half out of three matches at the K Club and one-and-a-half out of four matches at Valhalla - I wouldn't mind getting some points out of this one."
Stenson's putt at the K Club eight years ago sealed the trophy for Europe.
