EurAsia Cup 2018: Thomas Bjorn admits sleepless nights over Ryder Cup

Asia hold a slim lead after the opening day of the Eur Asia Cup Haotong wows Team Asia captain

"I thought I might play a few tournaments in December, but when I came off the 18th green at the Nedbank Golf Challenge I changed my mind and was glad not to be playing in December, because I have so many thoughts about the team".

"The European Tour has made the choice a no-brainer", he said of rejoining the circuit.

The European team, who won the 2016 EurAsia Cup at the same venue, will be captained by Thomas Bjørn of Denmark, who has 21 professional titles to his name. I felt like I was missing out a couple years ago, watching Darren Clarke and his great team and not being in the Ryder Cup was a huge factor.

The US-based player has been convinced by Thomas Bjorn, the home captain for this autumn's encounter in France, to take up that membership again this season and Casey insisted he is over what happened back in 2010.

"I've got a very good Ryder Cup record, and a very good match play record, I've only ever lost two matches in a Ryder Cup". This is no such thing as an underdog in match play golf. "I'll enjoy wearing the flag this week and hopefully it might end up being the first of many appearances for Europe over the coming years". "But the players in my team are all champions and they all know how to win", said Atwal, a victor on multiple tours, ranging from Asia to Europe and US. It's great fun. You make new friendships. Yes, I can spend time with them on Tour, but there they are very into their own commitments and what they want to do.

The EurAsia Cup will feature 24 matches, with day one showcasing six Fourball matches, followed by six Foursomes matches and 12 Singles matches on the third day. "I always really look forward to foursomes because I think that's a really challenging and testing form of golf". So it's really unbelievable to see these younger players coming through now.

Although the EurAsia Cup captaincy role is a first for Atwal, the Indian is revelling in it and already has his strategy mapped out with sound advice from close friends. It means a little bit more to get a point for other guys. When I took this role, I was amazed how willing so numerous players were to appear here.

"I think this is good for us, giving us encouragement and motivation".
