Sam Torrance: Nick Faldo is an a-hole for comments about Sergio Garcia

European PGA golfer Nick Faldo has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Back in 2008, Faldo made a comment about Sergio Garcia and he has been paying for it ever since. First, fellow European Ian Poutler threw Faldo under the bus in his autobiographical book. Now another European golfer is upset with Faldo as well. Sam Torrance was part of that 2008 Ryder Cup team and he hasn...

Fanatics: Ryder Cup Fans Add To Wild Atmosphere

If the atmosphere was good on Friday and Saturday — and it was — it was nothing compared with the show put on by the spectators at Gleneagles for the final day of the 40th Ryder Cup. The first match between Graeme McDowell and Jordan Spieth didn’t tee off until 11.36 a.m., but soon after 9 a.m. local time, there wasn’t a seat to be had in the huge grandstand surrounding...

When losing hurts worse than winning feels good

GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) Jim Furyk is the only player in the last 25 years to experience both ends of emotion in that moment the Ryder Cup is over. He knows how empty it feels to lose the decisive game. And he has been soaked in a celebration of champagne. Oddly enough, both happened in the same match. It was in 2002 when Paul McGinley made an 8-foot par putt for a half-point against...

Remembering Bob Torrance

I was 14 years old and had entered the West of Scotland boys’ championship at Strathaven. Back then, you didn’t know who you were partnered with until you got to the course and when I stepped on to the first tee I was introduced to a strapping man child who looked like he had turned up for the wrong tournament. He was immaculately dressed and when he took his first practice swing...
