EurAsia Cup 2018: Thomas Bjorn admits sleepless nights over Ryder Cup

I saw Davis (Love III) at a range somewhere and I kind of told him that I was captaining.

No, Woods has never captained a team event, but he has played on 15 USA teams between the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup. I'm very proud of that, and I've desperately missed it, and I want to play another one.

Noren is joined by the likes of reigning Race to Dubai victor Tommy Fleetwood, former Open champion Henrik Stenson, Tyrrell Hatton, Paul Casey and Rafa Cabrera-Bello in a formidable European team that will present their Asian counterparts with a stiff challenge.

"It hurt a lot", he said.

"I thought that I might play a few tournaments in December, but when I came off the 18th green at the Nedbank Golf Challenge I changed my mind and was glad not to be playing in December, because I have so many thoughts about the team".

"I think the commitment from the players early on, wanting to play in this event, shows where European golf is", Bjorn said. He probably had a harder time talking to me than I did to him.

Atlanta never trailed at the Coliseum while winning playoff games in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history . Henry exploded for 156 yards on 23 carries. "He can block", Henry said of Mariota. "You've got to believe in each other, man".

Dunne is now well-placed in the Ryder Cup standings at seventh in the European points list and sixth in the world points list but there is still a long way to go before the team is finalised.

The 2018 EurAsia Cup, the third edition of the competition, starts tomorrow with 12-man golf teams from Europe and Asia coming up against each other at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club in Shah Alam. Writing in a player blog on the European Tour website, Dunne says he is fully aware of how this week could impact on his chances of booking a place at Le Golf National later this year.

Fitzpatrick, who made his Ryder Cup debut alongside Pieters at Hazeltine, added: "Just to add on Ross' point, I think golf does need a little bit of a different format, maybe more team events, maybe more partner events".

"There's all the stuff that happens off the course, all the friendships you build in the team room, all the amusing moments, and stressful moments, it's the fabric that makes your career".

The Indian, who won the Asian Tour Order of Merit in 2003, is counting on Korea's Byeonghun An and Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat to deliver the first point in their opening match against England's Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey.
