Torrance sure that fans will behave

European captain Sam Torrance is confident that this year's Ryder Cup will not be marred by the disgraceful scenes of Brookline two years ago.

America's win was overshadowed by crowd abuse and barracking aimed at European players.

But Torrance feels that fans flocking to The Belfry in September will rise above the temptation to take revenge on the visiting side.

The Scot said: "We can rely on the good judgement of the European supporters. They have never stepped out of line before. So why should they do it now? I don't think it will happen."

Torrance accepts that in the heat of the match it is almost impossible for fans not to celebrate a mistake by the opposition.

"If someone hits the ball in the water it's not right to shout out but you can't help it," admitted Torrance. "What I abhor is the shouting during a shot or before a shot."
