Europe’s Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley says Lee Westwood is likely but not guaranteed to see some action at Gleneagles tomorrow afternoon.

Worksop’s Westwood is one of four players rested for the morning’s fourballs against the Americans.

But Irishman McGinley said it’s probable but not definite that he’ll put that quartet out on the course for the foursomes.

“It’s pretty much my plan to get all 12 players out there tomorrow,” he said.

“But I wouldn’t say it’s set in stone, you just have to watch and see, you never know what might happen in the morning.”

He insisted the 12 European players were remaining calm and confident ahead of what is expected to be a boisterous and tense atmosphere on the first tee at 7.35am tomorrow.

McGinley added: “The fun’s only starting now.”

“We will be ready. We’ve had one big meeting this week, we’ll have another one tonight.”
