Clarke hails ‘brilliant’ Europe

Captain thrilled with comfortable win

Europe captain Daren Clarke hailed his side’s ‘brilliant’ performance in easing to victory in the EurAsia Cup.

Heading into the final day of the clash with a 9-3 deficit, victories for K.T Kim and Anirban Lahiri over Bernd Wiesberger and Shane Lowry respectively gave the Asia side hope.

However, wins for Ian Poulter, Andy Sullivan and Lee Westwood against Danny Chia, Thongchai Jaidee and Nicholas Fung ensured a commanding position for the Europeans at Glenmarie Golf and Country Club in Kuala Lumpur.

It was left to Danny Willett, who came from two down to beat Byeong-hun An, to seal victory for the Europeans, who ultimately came out of the battle with an 18.5 to 5.5 triumph.

“The team have played fantastic this week,” said Clarke, who will captain Europe’s Ryder Cup team later this year.

“There have been a lot of positives this week. I’ve learnt a few things, and hopefully I’ll do a better job come September.

“But if the players don’t play and don’t perform, you can be the best captain in the world and you’re not going to win.

“This belongs to the players; the quality of the golf this week has been brilliant.”
