China’s Li Haotong held his nerve to birdie his final hole and give hosts Asia a slender lead over champions Europe on the opening day of the 2018 EurAsia Cup in Kuala Lumpur on Friday. I love matchplay, especially when you have a partner like Tommy Fleetwood,” said Casey, who was one of Bjorn’s two wildcard selections. “What a blast, what great golf we played, but the Asians threw a lot at us, as well. Another English pairing, Ross Fisher and Tyrrell Hatton, then tied the scores with a 5 and 4 win over Indian duo of Anirban Lahiri and S.S.P Chawrasia. Cabrera-Bello’s immaculate putting saw the pair lead by one at the 18th tee but they failed to match Asia’s birdie and had to settle for a half point.
