Gallacher and Law face India in Scots' opening tie in Portugal

Press release
Three Ryder Cup winners will bring their star quality to next week’s GolfSixes Cascais, with Jamie Donaldson of Wales, Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher and Italy’s Edoardo Molinari leading their respective nations into battle for the innovative six-hole event at Oitavos Dunes, from June 7-8.
The groups have been released for the return of the exciting shootout tournament, which for the first time takes place outside of England and in the Portuguese resort of Cascais, and the local fans will be treated to a host of intriguing matches on day one.
The opening tie of the 2019 edition will feature Portugal’s wildcard team – childhood friends Pedro Figueiredo and Ricardo Gouveia – taking on England’s Tom Lewis, the reigning Portugal Masters champion, and Paul Waring.
Joining those two teams in Group A will be Scotland – with 2014 Ryder Cup winner Gallacher joined by his fellow winner on the 2019 Race to Dubai David Law – and they will face an India team featuring S S P Chawrasia and Gaganjeet Bhullar in their opening tussle.

The 2018 champions Team Ireland – Paul Dunne and Gavin Moynihan – will begin their title defence against an England Women’s team comprising Meghan MacLaren and Florentyna Parker, who have five Ladies European Tour titles between them.
They are joined in Group B by Sweden’s Alexander Björk and Joakim Lagergren and Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee and Pachara Khongwatmai, who face off in the opening match of their group on Friday morning.
The pick of the matches in Group C will also take place first thing on Friday morning when an Australian team featuring three-time European Tour winner Scott Hend and Wade Ormsby takes on Wales, with 2014 Ryder Cup hero Donaldson joined by Stuart Manley.
