DUBLIN (AP) — Europe captain Paul McGinley has selected Sam Torrance and Des Smyth as two of his vice captains for this year's Ryder Cup against United States at Gleneagles.

Torrance captained Europe to victory in the 2002 event, when McGinley holed the winning putt at the Belfry.

The 61-year-old Smyth has played in the Ryder Cup twice and was Ian Woosnam's assistant in the 2006 competition at the K Club.

McGinley says his other assistants will be announced after the team has been formalized in September.

The 2014 Ryder Cup is scheduled for Sept. 26-28.
