Send your Good Luck messages to the teams

LONDON - The Five Live Breakfast show will be broadcast from the K Club for the duration of the Ryder Cup - and they're looking for your Good Luck messages to pass on to the teams.

Post them on the Breakfast blog and they will be broadcast on Five Live between now and the start of the event.

Presenter Nicky Campbell, who will be on the course from 6am on the first Friday as the excitement mounts ahead of the first tee off at about 8am, will take them to Ireland to hand over to the teams.

Five Live will be at the course throughout the event, with Campbell also presenting Saturday and Sunday's Breakfast programmes from the K Club as the tension (hopefully) builds. John Inverdale will host most of the daytime output, with resident blogger Iain Carter leading the commentary team.

Iain Carter

Iain_carter55x55.jpgThis will be my second Ryder Cup as BBC Radio's Golf Correspondent.

All I can remember from the first was that the only time I relaxed in the entire week was playing table tennis of an evening with the rest of the Five Live team - and that commentator John Murray is the most negative ping ponger I've ever met.
