Team Europe Dominate Singles to Retain EurAsia Cup

Europe retain Eur Asia Cup

Bernd Wiesberger and Alex Levy recorded respective victories over Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai and Kiradech Aphibarnrat to put Europe on the cusp of victory before Pieters gave Europe an unassailable lead.

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.

Arjun Atwal's Asia had led the third edition of the biennial matchplay contest following the opening two days of fourballs and foursomes but was swept aside when the players were sent out alone at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.

"Today, I can only say that every single one of them stood up and did everything they could and I'm just very proud of these boys".

The winning moment for Europe came on the 18th hole when Belgium's Thomas Pieters beat Korea's Byeonghun An by one hole. "We have got to go out and put some blue on the board and try to win the singles".

The victory will act as a welcome boost for Bjorn, who will also captain Europe at the Ryder Cup in France this September, with the hosts looking to regain the trophy they lost to the United States at Hazeltine in 2016.


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

"I learned a lot about these 12 players, and they have all got potential to be in Paris in nine months time".

"Very proud, actually. They are a great group of guys". We all have to do our own part today. "It shows a lot about what we are, and to watch them from the sidelines doing what they do best has been a pleasure". "There was a determination, and a will, and a wanting to win this", Europe captain Thomas Bjorn said.

Team Europe surged from a one point deficit after two days of competition and added eight-and-a-half points from today's singles event, for an overall 14 points to win the tournament by four points. "It can swing very much on the last day and we showed today that if you are good and strong on Sundays, you can win these things", said the 46-year-old, who has 15 European Tour titles to his cap. "Then played pretty poorly during the middle, then made a couple of very good birdies", Pieters said after his winning point.

Alex Noren beat Nicholas Fung 4&2, and Rafa Cabrera Bello then beat Gavin Green 4&3 before Tommy Fleetwood made it three in a row with a 2&1 victory against SSP Chawrasia.

South Korea's Kang Sung-Hoon halved his match with England's Matthew Fitzpatrick.
