Colin Montgomerie has handed Lee Westwood what he calls "the honour" of leading off the home challenge for the Ryder Cup this morning and the Englishman will do so confident that the errors of two years ago have been fixed.

Sir Nick Faldo may be the much-maligned former Europe captain, but that has not stopped him from criticising the first moves of his successor. Colin Montgomerie, he says, has acted too rashly in telling his players the partnerships for Friday morning's opening fourballs.

For Radio 2 listeners of a certain vintage, Sunday lunchtimes will always belong to Michael Parkinson. Twinkly anecdotage and a trot through the papers, plus user-friendly jazz and swing: what better soundtrack when you're cooking the Sunday roast?

If you don't particularly like golf, there are few players you would be prepared to watch a TV programme about. Perhaps only one: Severiano Ballesteros. OK, so he had some dodgy pairs of flares in his time but it was his flair on the course that transcended his staid pastime; he had a sunny disposition mixed with Mediterranean emotion; and, for those who only really get interested in the game when the Ryder Cup is on, "he was without a doubt the reason why Europe started winning", according to Jack Nicklaus on Inside Sport Special (BBC1, Wednesday). If you were to watch a programme about Nick Faldo or Bernhard Langer, you would be likely to reflect upon a good three-quarters of an hour spoiled.

Tom Watson bounced back from his Open heartache with an opening-round 67 at the Senior Open Championship here yesterday.
