Evans joins 5 Live team for golf

BBC Radio 5 Live is going golf crazy when the Ryder Cup tournament arrives in the UK next month – and has signed up Chris Evans as a roving reporter.

John Inverdale will host the station's coverage from Celtic Manor in Newport and both Nicky Campbell and Gabby Logan are taking their shows to South Wales.

Inverdale will anchor 5 Live's coverage from Newport across the three days, with live commentary from 9am until close of play on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 October and from 11am on Sunday 3 October.

Nicky Campbell will host 5 Live Breakfast from Celtic Manor from 6am on Friday and Saturday morning with all the build-up and action from the early matches.

Radio 2 breakfast presenter Chris Evans – a self-proclaimed golf fanatic – will be a roving reporter for the live coverage, joining commentators Iain Carter, Andrew Cotter, John Murray, Clare Balding, Alistair Bruce-Ball.

There are also two special preview programmes produced for 5 Live as part of the build-up.

European Captain Colin Montgomerie looks back on his illustrious Ryder Cup career in an interview with Iain Carter for a 5 Live Sport: Ryder Cup Special on Monday 27 September at 10pm.

On Thursday 30 September, on the eve of the Ryder Cup, Gabby Logan broadcasts (12noon-2pm) live from Celtic Manor with all the build up to the event, whilst Clare Balding hosts a special 5 Live Sport Ryder Cup Preview from 7pm that night.
