Victor Dubuisson's eventful day

    There is never a dull moment when Victor Dubuisson is about – something proved again on an eventful first day for the Frenchman at the EURASIA CUP presented by DRB-HICOM.

    The Ryder Cup star, who partnered Søren Kjeldsen in the opening fourballs matches against Danny Chia and Nicholas Fung, appeared in good form until a worrying moment at the 15th tee when he appeared unable to bend his leg after locking his knee while reading a putt on the previous green.

    With Victor barely able to walk and Team Europe Captain Darren Clarke watching on anxiously, the physio was called out to the course. Dubuisson’s chances of carrying on, and Team Europe’s prospects in what was a tight match, looked fairly bleak at this point.


    However, after some nervous stretches, the 25 year old stunned onlookers by reaching for his driver on 16 and smashing it 293 yards down the par five.

    The limp was still there as he made his way down the fairway but after laying up, Dubuisson hit a fine pitch close before holing what had looked like a very improbable birdie back on the tee.

    The Europeans eventually went on to halve the match with their Asian opponents, although the concerns around Victor’s fitness remained until he explained post-match what exactly happened, and how much he was looking forward to pairing with Kjeldsen again in Saturday’s foursomes.
