BBC Sport - Ryder Cup 2014: Paul McGinley on Sam Torrance & Des Smyth

McGinley praises vice-captains' 'passion'

Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley says he picked vice-captains Sam Torrance and Des Smyth because of their "ability, passion and judgement".

2002 Ryder Cup-winning captain Torrance looks to bring his "experience" to the team, with Smyth hoping to be a mentor to the players.

McGinley will name two more vice-captains for the match, which sees holders Europe take on the United States at Gleneagles from 26-28 September.
