Below, we take a look at the Ryder Cup weather forecast for the 40th matches at Gleneagles.

In general, it looks to pretty mild, with temperatures around the 15-degree mark and rain only forecast for a couple of hours over the three days.

Still, we all know how changeable the conditions can be in Scotland, and you have to feel the Europeans would be more adept at dealing with inclement weather.

That said, the likes of Rickie Fowler and Zach Johnson have impressed in tough conditions in the past, and we mustn't forget that Americans often experience cool, heavy weather during the PGA Tour's West Coast swing.
