Torrance likely to be named Ryder Cup Captain

Europe's Ryder Cup captain will be announced on Wednesday, officials said on Tuesday.

European captain Mark James stepped down after the United States won the Cup 14-1/2 to 13-1/2 in Brookline, Boston, in September.

The announcement will take place at 1100 GMT at the European Tour's headquarters.

Sam Torrance is a leading contender for the job, with the next Ryder Cup taking place at the Belfry on September 28-30, 2001. Torrance has been favourite for the job ever since Mark James announced that Brookline was to be a one off experience.
