Strong start for Europe
Europe made a strong start to the Friday fourballs as they looked to build on their two-point lead on the second day of the Seve Trophy.
Francesco Molinari's glorious tee-shot on the third helped him and Italian team-mate Matteo Manassero establish a one-hole lead over GB & Ireland pair David Lynn and Scott Jamieson after four.
And there was more blue on the early scoreboard with Joost Lutten and Gregory Bourdy two-up on Tommy Fleetwood and Chris Wood after three, and Nicolas Colsaerts and Gonzalo Fdez-Castano also edging ahead of Paul Lawrie and Stephen Gallacher.
But Sam Torrance's team were slowly coming back into it with Paul Casey and Simon Khan moving two up against Mikko Ilonen and Thorbjorn Olesen after five, and Jamie Donaldson and Marc Warren one up on Thomas Bjorn and Miguel Angel Jimenez.
