Europe double EurAsia Cup lead on day two in Kuala Lumpur

Darren Clarke's Europe strengthen their position on the second day of the EurAsia Cup by winning four of the six foursome matches to open up a six-point advantage.

Europe have opened up a commanding 9-3 lead in the EurAsia Cup by winning 4.5-1.5 for the second day running in Kuala Lumpur.

Just as in the first day's fourballs, Ian Poulter helped clinch the first point of the foursomes as he and fellow Englishman Danny Willett eased to a 3&2 victory over Byeong-Hun An and Thongchai Jaidee.

Bernd Wiesberger and Ross Fisher, Shane Lowry and Andy Sullivan and Lee Westwood and Matt Fitzpatrick were also victorious for Europe, while Soren Kjeldsen and Victor Dubuisson halved their match with Danny Chia and Nicholas Fung.

Asia's only victory on day two at the Glenmarie Golf & Country Club came through SSP Chawrasia and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, who saw off Kristoffer Broberg and Chris Wood by two holes.

Darren Clarke's Europe need only three-and-a-half points from Sunday's singles matches to win the trophy for the first time after victory in the inaugural event was shared two years ago.
