After a blistering performance from Team Europe on day one of the EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM, took a statistical - and sometimes sideways - look back at the best of the action...


5 - Point lead for Team Europe after clean sweep in day 1 fourball matches

4&3 - Largest winning margin from Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Stephen Gallacher

10 - Combined shots under par they were on completing the match on the 15th

148 - Yardage of Gonzo's 9 iron approach into the 1st hole - he found the cup for an opening eagle 2

30 - Low 9 score on day 1 (Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Miguel Angel Jimenez on the front 9)

2 - Eagles for Jimenez in his opening match at the 3rd and 11th plus 3 birdies

6 - European Eagles in total on day 1 (4 on the 11th; 1 on the 1st; 1 on the 3rd)

3 - Holes Graeme McDowell and Jamie Donaldson were down after 7 holes; they went on to win 3&1

2 - Matches that went all the way to the 18th (Bjorn/Olesen vs Oda/Tanihara and McDowell/Donaldson vs Kim Hyung-Sung and Nicholas Fung)

1 - Inch Joost Luiten was away from his 2nd albatross of the year after his 2nd shot into the par 5 11th (His 1st came at the Volvo Golf Champions in January)

5 - Birdies Team Asia's Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Gaganjeet Bhullar both had yet still ended up on the losing side

2 - Days to come: 5 foursomes matches on Saturday and 10 singles on Saturday

10.5 - Points needed to win the contest outright

2 - The minimum number of celebratory glasses of rioja El Capitano will surely enjoy this evening after a spellbinding day for Team Europe...
