Written By: Philip Eno on 07/19/14 at 4:20 am

Renowned golf coach Bob Torrance, the father of Ryder Cup-winning captain Sam, has died aged 82. Torrance helped Irishman Padraig Harrington win back-to-back Open titles in 2007 and 2008. His son Sam, who captained Europe to Ryder Cup success in 2002, tweeted:  "Sad day - my dad just passed away peacefully in his sleep." Bob Torrance, described by Harrington as "the best swing coach in the world", had been battling cancer. Iain Carter, BBC Sport's golf correspondent, tweeted: "Saddened to hear of the death of one of golf's great gentlemen and a wonderful teacher, Bob Torrance. Thoughts with June & Sam."
