Asia fight back in Brunei
Last updated: 15th December 2012
After a horror first day in the Royal Trophy, Asia fought back in the fourballs to peg back Europe's lead to just a point.
Playing at the Empire Hotel and Country Club in Brunei, the Asian outfit managed a meager half a point of the four on offer on Friday as Europe took a 3.5-0.5 lead.
The hosts showed they would not go down quietly though, claiming three points courtesy of two victories and two halved matches to end day two with Europe leading 4.5-3.5.
Jeev Milkha Singh and Kiradech Aphibarnrat got Asia off to a solid start, halving their match with playing-captain Jose Maria Olazabal and compatriot Miguel Angel Jimenez. Bae Sang-moon and Ashun Wu then followed suit against Nicolas Colsaerts and Marcel Siem.
The Korean duo of YE Yang and KT Kim then went one better, beating Henrik Stenson and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano - who were on top form on Friday - 2&1.
Ryo Ishikawa and Yoshinori Fujimoto ensured that the day finished on a high as they bagged another point courtesy of a 3&1 victory over the Molinari brothers, Edoardo and Francesco.
The competition concludes on Sunday with eight singles matches.
