Fans wishing to see Paul McGinley's European team defend the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in 2014 were yesterday able to begin a two-part application process to buy tickets.

Ryder Cup Europe has launched a registration website where spectators must register a photograph of themselves before applying for tickets from Monday 10 June until midnight on Monday 22 July.

Those applications will be included in a ballot, with those who have been successful being notified in the week commencing 12 August.

Tickets for the three practice days - 23-25 September - will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from 10 June.

Prices range from £10 for under-16s on the practice days to £145 for the final day on Sunday 28 September. Two-day, four-day and six-day season tickets are also available.

European Ryder Cup director Richard Hills said: "The 2014 Ryder Cup promises to be a truly great sporting occasion set in one of the world's most spectacular and iconic golfing locations.

"Understandably, tickets are highly sought after, but the ballot process for match-day tickets means that everyone has the same chance of success.

"Furthermore, we fully believe that the range of ticket options available - including the practice days tickets which are available for purchase straight away - offer exceptional value for money and we are proud that children will be able to see some of the greatest golfers in the world on those days for £10."
