Jeev Milkha Singh rolled in two massive putts for birdies on the 16th and 17th holes to score a full point over veteran Miguel Angel Jimenez and help Asia clinch the Royal Trophy golf only for the second time in six editions.
Jeev’s effort tied the match at 8-8 and, in the first sudden death play-off, the Korean duo of K.T. Kim and Y.E. Yang defeated Ryder Cup hero Nicolas Colsaerts and Francesco Molinari to grab the Royal Trophy for Asia after the end of three exciting days at The Empire Hotel & Country Club.
Kim showed no nerves as he drained his 15 footer, and then Colsaerts’ putt, which was half that distance, agonisingly slid past the hole giving Asia an amazing win.
Asia had trailed 0.5-3.5 after the first day and then reduced the margin to one point on the second day. It won the singles 4.5 to 3.5 to tie match.
