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.
