Team USA may have been soundly beaten in the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles on Sunday, but at Port Bannatyne Golf Club the men in red reversed the result in the local club’s own mini version of the famous tournament.

Played by the Port members not taking part in teh club’s tour to Arran, the match resulted in victory for the ‘American’ team over the blue-clad ‘Europe’ by 3.5 points to 1.5.

Unlike at Gleneagles, there was no spraying of champagne afterwards - though but both teams sat down to a healthy repast of soup and pies, courtesy of the Fisher family.
