Europe smashes Asia in EurAsia Cup


Europe has cruised to an easy EurAsia Cup win against Asia with another brilliant performance in Sunday's singles matches.

Danny Willett put in another strong performance for Europe on the third and final day of the contest as his 3 and 1 win over Byeong Jun An sealed the win for the travelling side.

The final margin of 18 1/2 - 5 1/2 was a fair reflection of Europe's dominance.

Willett's win gave the European's a match-winning lead of 13-3 with eight matches still to finish at the Glenmarie Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur.

The Europeans took a 9-3 lead into the second day, having won the first two days 4 1/2 - 1 1/2.

Ian Poulter set the tone for another dominant day, as he had all tournament, dispatching Malaysia's Danny Chia 4 and 3.

Andy Sullivan defeated Thonchai Jaidee 4 and 3, while Matthew Fitzpatrick accounted for Kiradech Aphibarnrat with a two-hole win.

Lee Westwood, Chris Wood, Kristoffer Broberg, Victor Dubuisson and Soren Kjeldsen added further points to the dominant tourists' tally.

Anirban Lahiri and K.T Kim were Asia's sole winners, defeating Shane Lowry and Bernd Wiesberger respectively to help boost the home side's points total.

Jeunghung Wang won another half point after his match against Ross Fisher was halved.

The 2 1/2 points gained on the day did little to disguise the comfort of Europe's win, however, as the visiting side claimed the first ever win in the EurAsia Cup, after the inaugural event last year finished in a 10-10 draw.
