Europe trail in EurAsia Cup

Europe trail in EurAsia Cup

Tommy Fleetwood and Henrik Stenson, Europe, def. SSP Chawrasia and Anirban Lahiri, Asia, 3 and 2.

Yuga Ikeda and Gavin Green claimed an impressive win over 2016 Ryder Cup players Thomas Pieters and Matthew Fitzpatrick 2 & 1.

They now lead the competition which is being held at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club with six-and-a-half points after two days, while Team Europe also added three points to settle with five-and-a-half points.

Team Asia continued their strong performance at the 2018 EurAsia Cup golf championship with another three points in the foursome format (alternate shot) on the second day of competition.

Atwal would have been anxious that the scoreline was running away from the hosts but their comeback began with the match of the day as Yuta Ikeda and Gavin Green won three of the final four holes against Levy and Rafa Cabrera Bello to secure a winning point on the 18th green. That has always been my belief since I took up this captaincy. "I'm not surprised or shocked by our results so far". "If you're just one or two down, matches can flip. I'm very pleased with their pairing and everything that has been leading up to it and the way they have delivered", said Atwal.


The anchor match saw Bernd Wiesberger partner Englishman Ross Fisher, a victor on Friday, against Haotong Li and Nicholas Fung but despite moving 2up at the par five 6th green Asia responded quickly and Li continued his strong putting display from the opening day's play to secure a 3&1 win and maintain Asia's slender advantage heading into Sunday's singles.

"Putting wins matches. If you make putts, you're going to win matches".

Europe entered the match as heavy favorites, but will have to dominate the singles to help give Bjorn a taste of success before he captains Europe in this year's Ryder Cup.

Bernd Wiesberger and Rafa Cabrera Bello did manage to settle the nerves by halving their fourball match against Nicholas Fung and Haotong Li.

"We got off to a really good start today and things looked like (they were) going our way, but at the end there was a comeback by the Asian team and it ended up three-three", Bjorn said. I believe in all 12 of them, as I always will. It's as simple as that.
