Ex-Captain Gallacher: America In A Ryder Cup “Panic”

Derek Lawrenson talks to former European Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Gallacher about the 65-year-olds' health (he’s recovered from a massive heart attack) and about the post-Ryder Cup fall-out.

Gallagher sees an American side not as far off from competing for the cup as it thinks but one that needs to drop the task forces and just bring in golf’s Zenmaster in 2016.

‘It will swing back America’s way if they don’t panic but that’s exactly what they seem to be doing,’ he said. ‘The task force just looks a publicity stunt to me. They lost the Ryder Cup because they lost the foursomes matches 7-1. How’s a task force going to help on that?’
