Sam Torrance collects OBE from Queen

Victorious Europe Ryder Cup captain Sam Torrance on Wednesday collected his second honor from Queen Elizabeth II following his team's triumph at The Belfry in September.

Having already been awarded the MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire), the 50-year-old Scot received the more prestigious OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) at Buckingham Palace.

Torrance, who holed the winning putt when Europe ended almost three decades of United States triumphs in 1985, led his team to a 15 1/2 to 12 1/2 victory at the same Belfry course against a United States team that included Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

That was the biggest margin of victory for either side since that 1985 European triumph.
