Asia edge out Europe

Bandar Seri Begawan (Brunei): Asia won the Royal Trophy by the tightest of margins on Sunday, edging Europe in a sudden death playoff to complete a stunning comeback in the team match play competition after the contest had finished level at 8-8.

South Korean Kim Kyung-tae rolled in a 15ft birdie putt on the 18th, the first playoff hole, as he and compatriot Yang Yong-eun saw off Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts and Francesco Molinari of Italy in the fourball decider.

Asia's second win in the sixth edition of the annual contest loosely based on the Ryder Cup model then drew a 'Gangnam Style' celebratory dance from Japanese captain Joe Ozaki.
