ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND (AP) - Former Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher is in a hospital in Scotland, although it’s not clear why he’s there.

No more details about the 64-year-old Scot have been released, but nephew Stephen Gallacher says “I understand that he is critical but stable.”

Gallacher turned professional in 1967. Two years later, he became the youngest winner of the British PGA Championship at 20 years and 97 days, a record that stood until this year when Italy’s Matteo Manassero won at Wentworth at 20 years, 37 days.
