EurAsia Cup captains named
Darren Clarke and Jeev Milkha Singh will be the team captains for the EurAsia Cup taking place in Malaysia in January.
For Europe’s Ryder Cup captain, Clarke, it will be a great opportunity to get a feel for captaining a European team ahead of September’s big event against America.
"We have known each other a very, very long time," said Clarke, in reference to his friend and Asia captain, Singh.
"We have played together on tour for most of our careers."
This will be the second time the event has been staged after the 2014 edition ended 10-10. It takes place from 15-17 January at Kuala Lumpur's Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.
Clarke said that it was going to be very competitive against his friend Jeev in January.
"Both teams that are assembled will be desperate to win the EurAsia Cup for the first time – when we get to Kuala Lumpur Jeev will be trying to kick my butt and I will be trying to kick his. It's going to be a great week – the guys are really looking forward to it already."
Singh said he was honoured to be offered the EurAsia Cup captaincy.
"It's an honour to be offered the EurAsia Cup captaincy and I am very excited by the prospect of leading what I hope will be a very strong Asian team. It is a special event.
"I'm looking forward to going up against Darren – I'm going to have a lot of fun with him."
