SCOTLAND’S Sam Torrance loves the Ryder Cup.
After all, he represented Europe eight times between 1981-1995 and was the man of the moment in 1985 when he helped Europe defeat the powerful American team for the first time in 28 years.
It was Torrance who sank the winning putt on the 18th green at The Belfry in England to deprive the Yanks.
He also was a member of Cup-winning teams in 1987. That year Europe won on American soil for the first time.
In 2002, Torrance was the European team’s non-playing captain and led his team to victory at The Belfry, which made him the second European to sink the winning putt and captain a winning team at separate Ryder Cups.
