Britain and Ireland tied with Continental Europe in Seve Trophy

Britain and Ireland won four and halved one of the eight foursomes to tie Continental Europe 9-9 at the Seve Trophy on Saturday.

Continental Europe led 8-6 after the morning session but Britain and Ireland fought back in the afternoon. Paul Casey and David Lynn beat Miguel Angel Jimenez and Matteo Manassero by a hole to even the contest.

The tournament ends Sunday with 10 singles. Each team needs only 5 1/2 more points for victory.

Continental Europe lost the last six meetings and is trying to win the trophy for the first time since the inaugural contest in 2000.
