(Golf) Asia bounce back to share EurAsia Cup
(03-29 14:45)

Asia has staged an improbable Ryder Cup-like comeback on the final day of the EurAsia Cup today, picking up seven of 10 points available in singles to level the score at 10-all and share the trophy with Europe.
Asia, trailing 7-3 going into the final day, briefly took the lead at 9.5-8.5 before Joost Luiten beat Koumei Oda 1-up to pull the Europeans level.
That left the tournament going down to the final match between Asia's Hideto Tanihara and Europe's Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, which finished all square.
Tanihara sank an eight-foot putt to halve the 17th after Fernandez-Castano eagled 16 to even the match.
Europe, who led 5-0 after the opening fourball competition Thursday, only needed 3.5 points today to clinch the trophy. –AP
