Team Europe Retains EurAsia Cup
Team Europe, captained by Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn, dominated the Single matches to earn a hard-fought win over Team Asia with a 14-10 victory to retain the EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM. After trailing Team Asia for two days, Europe surmounted a gallant fightback to win eight out of 12 matches in the Singles format at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.
“It was a great performance today from every single one of them, they go out and do the job the way they did today shows a lot about the character of these 12 guys, and it shows a lot about the character of European golf, and it shows a lot about what we are,” said Bjorn.
Alex Noren of Sweden delivered the day’s first point with a convincing 4&2 win over Malaysia’s Nicholas Fung. Asia’s number one Gavin Green of Malaysia then fell victim to
Spain’s Rafa Cabrera Bello 4&3.
The winning moment for Europe came on the 18th hole when Belgium’s Thomas Pieters beat Korea’s Byeonghun An by one hole.
