FORMER Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher is in a “critical” condition in hospital.
The Bathgate-born 64-year-old is being treated in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, NHS Grampian has confirmed.
His nephew Stephen, who today quit the Wales Open with a back injury, said: “I understand that he is critical but stable.
“My family is in disarray at the moment and it is obviously a worrying situation. We are all anxious.”
Gallacher, who now lives in Berkshire, is the dad of TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher.
He led the European Ryder Cup team to victory over the US in 1995, having previously twice been losing captain.
