Continental Europe leads 3-2 after fourballs in Hero Cup

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Continental Europe has established a 3-2 lead in the Hero Cup after taking down Britain & Ireland’s top players in the fourballs as Ryder Cup captain Luke Donald cast his eye over the continent’s next generation in match-play competition. The event was added to the schedule to give Donald a chance to assess his options ahead of Europe’s contest with the United States outside Rome in September. Four of the five matches went to the 18th. One of them saw Britain & Ireland’s lead pairing of Tommy Fleetwood and Shane Lowry lose to Alex Noren and Thomas Pieters.
