Europe holds 7-3 lead after 2 days in the 1st EurAsia Cup

Asia had two wins and two halves in the five foursomes matches at the Eurasia Cup on Friday, with Europe needing a late rally in the other match to hold a 7-3 lead after two days at Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.

Prayad Marksaeng of Thailand and South Korea's Kim Hyung-sung had a 4 and 3 win over the Danish pair of Thomas Bjorn and Thorjorn Olesen in the first result of the day. Then Anirban Lahiri and Siddikur Rahman closed out a 1-up victory over Joost Luiten and Victor Dubuisson after Asia led 2-up with two to play.

Europe, which led 5-0 after winning all fourball matches Thursday, then gained two halves before Graeme McDowell and Jamie Donaldson combined to give the visitors their only full point of day two.
