EurAsia Cup: Asia comeback leaves Europe trailing by one point

Share

Bjorn, captaining a European team at the EurAsia Cup in Malaysia this weekend, has praised Jacobs' dedication to European golf and the greater golfing fraternity both as a player and a coach.

Bjorn was hoping his side would bounce back in the foursomes after a surprise 2 ½-3 ½ loss to Arjun Atwal's team in the four-ball.

Race to Dubai victor Tommy Fleetwood and Henrik Stenson put Europe on the board as they tied the overall score Saturday by handing the visitors a 3 and 2 win over Indian pairing Anirban Lahiri and S.S.P Chawrasia.

In the 2016 competition, Darren Clarke's European team romped to an 18.5-5.5 blowout victory over their Asian counterparts after the inaugural matchplay contest was tied two years earlier.

Team Asia's Sunghoon Kang and Poom Saksansin produced the biggest surprise of the day, defeating Europe's Major victor Henrik Stenson of Sweden and Frenchman Alexander Levy.

Team Asia produced an inspired performance in the Foursomes matches to maintain a one-point advantage over Team Europe at the EurAsia Cup golf tournament here on Saturday.

"When I look at the scoring in the groups I feel like, yeah, a couple of guys might feel like they should have done better, but in general there was a lot of good golf from our side".
