LONDON (AP)

With less than a year to go until the Ryder Cup, Europe captain Paul McGinley is deep in training for one of the key aspects of his role — public speaking.

TEE IT UP

Stay on course with this season's pro golf schedules.

McGinley has been undergoing half-day sessions in London to improve the content of the many speeches he will make before and during the 2014 competition against the United States at Gleneagles.

The Irishman says ''it's about getting everything chronologically correct in my presentations. I've been asked to do more and more public speaking, and I feel need to get myself more to a professional level.''

Sam Torrance, Europe's captain in 2002, said after being chosen for the role that he feared the speeches he would have to give more than the combined strength of the US team.
