  • Europe see off Asia to retain EurAsia Cup

Winning eight singles and halving another one, Europe emerged 8 to 3 winners in singles to complete a 14-10 triumph at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.

Japan's Yuta Ikeda and China's Li Haotong salvaged some pride for Team Asia by beating England's Ross Fisher and Ireland's Paul Dunne respectively.

Asia has never won the biennial Ryder Cup-style tournament.

Meanwhile, Team Asia's captain Arjun was proud with his team's performance, despite losing to Team Europe in the final round after leading the competition in the first two days. "You can see early on that we wanted it badly because the board was pretty blue", said Pieters.

"They have been fantastic all week", said Bjorn.

Europe dominated from the start Sunday and their winning point came when Belgium's Thomas Pieters defeated South Korea's An in a hard-fought match. "There was a determination and a will of wanting to win this".

Hamdan was reportedly conscious following the attack, and was rapidly transferred to a nearby hospital, the source said. The Lebanese army said a half-kilogramme bomb had been placed in his vehicle and detonated at around noon (1000 GMT).


"It's been an awesome experience for me, seeing as it's my first time in a team event as a pro", Hatton said.

Asia had led by a slim margin coming into the individual play, but they were soundly beaten by the Europeans, who are using the match play tournament as a dress rehearsal for the Ryder Cup later this year.

"From there, to then 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", added the Dane. "But I'm proud of my players, every single one of them". We all have to do our own part today. It looked like every time I watched my players, they were hitting the edges and it seemed like Europe, every time I watched them, they were either chipping in or making a lot of birdies.

Alexander Levy put Europe within striking distance of the title with a 3 and 1 victory over Kiradech Aphibarnrat, before Thomas Pieters confirmed the title with a 1 up win over An Byeong-hun.

Beginning one point behind Team Asia, Europe racked up three quick wins through Alex Noren (4&2 against Nicholas Fung), Rafa Cabrera-Bello (4&3 against Gavin Green) and Tommy Fleetwood (2&1 against SSP Chawrasia) to move ahead and were then interrupted only by Poom Saksansin's shock defeat of Paul Casey 1-up.

Englishman Tyrrell Hatton continued his strong form with a 2 and 1 win over India's Anirban Lahiri for his third point of the week, before South Korean Kang Sung-hoon denied Matthew Fitzpatrick victory with two late birdies.
