Golden duo hoping to bring Swede success to Blairgowrie

Marcus Kinhult and Linnea Ström arrive at the 2014 Junior Ryder Cup with Youth Olympics team gold medals in their pockets and they will be hoping to bring that Swede success to Scotland as Europe take on the USA this Monday and Tuesday at The Blairgowrie Golf Club.

Kinhult and Ström, who together won the team Youth Olympic golf medal in China last month, are confident that they have a team that can finally wrest back the trophy in Perthshire next week.

Ryder Cup debutants heading for Portugal

The Ryder Cup theme will be augmented by the participation of Europe’s captain, McGinley, and the man he hopes to emulate later this month, José Maria Olazábal, who will also be at Gleneagles as one of the Irishman’s vice-captains two years to the week since guiding his charges to a brilliant comeback victory at Medinah.
