The conservation charity Woodland Trust Scotland’s Glen Devon Woodlands are just a few miles away from the famous golf course where the tournament will be played in September.

The dedicated area within Geordie’s Wood will be named either Watson’s or McGinley’s Grove after the captain of the American or European team.

Gary Bolton from the Woodland Trust Scotland said: “Dedicating a tree is a great way to celebrate any occasion and with the Ryder Cup coming to Scotland for the first time in 40 years just a few miles from our woodland we’ve decided to name a small area of the Geordie’s Wood after the winning captain.

“The new woodland in Glen Devon is coming on really well and the way marked trails we have created to help people explore and enjoy this landscape are really popular with walkers and mountain bikers.”
