EurAsia Cup: Team Asia can defy the odds, says SSP Chawrasia

Casey Monty Main

Despite being the world No 9 at the time, he was overlooked by Montgomerie for the match at Celtic Manor along with Justin Rose, the Scot handing his wildcards instead to Padraig Harrington, Luke Donald and Edoardo Molinari.

Montgomerie instead opted for Edoardo Molinari, Padraig Harrington and Luke Donald, all of whom recorded important points as Europe edged out United States of America in a nail-biting 14.5-13.5 victory.

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.

"It hurt a lot", he said.

"I played the Royal Trophy (in 2010), and I really liked that".

No, Woods has never captained a team event, but he has played on 15 US teams between the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup. The first time I saw Monty afterwards was in Abu Dhabi the following year, and I congratulated him on the win.

"If that's the way Paul (McGinley) and Darren (Clarke) approached their captaincy, it's probably the reason I am approaching mine in the same way, and the reason that whoever is the next captain has to take the same approach. I've never had an issue talking to Colin".

EurAsia Cup: Team Asia can defy the odds, says SSP Chawrasia

He is joined by compatriot Ross Fisher, who is ranked sixth on the European Tour.

"When I didn't renew my membership on the European Tour, I was in a hard stage in my career outside the top 50", he explained. "I'll enjoy wearing the flag this week and hopefully it might end up being the first of many appearances for Europe over the coming years".

"Now, I'm at a place where I'm fortunate I can choose my schedule and make it as easy as possible. It really is on my mind all of the time, and no matter what little thing I'm thinking about, it has a Ryder Cup perspective".

The Englishman made his Ryder Cup debut in Europe's 2004 victory at Oakland Hills and helped the team retain the title two years later at the K Club near Dublin.

"So I'd love to be a part of it".

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.
