The golf world, and many out of it, have been left rocked by the news that Jarrod Lyle is going into palliative care after claiming he is “no longer able to fight.”
Europe Win Seve Trophy
Continental Europe has won the Seve Trophy by beating Great Britain and Ireland at St-Nom-La-Breteche for the first time since 2000 with a final score of 15-13.
Entering the final day the two teams were locked at 9-9. The contest went down to the final match between Francesco Molinari and England's Chris Wood, with the Italian winning 3&2 thanks to a birdie at 16.
Gregory Bourdy of France beat Scotland’s Scott Jamieson 4&3 to finish with five victories from his five matches.
Dutchman Joost Luiten, who won his first four matches, lost to England's Tommy Fleetwood 3&2 in the first singles match, before Bourdy closed out his encounter and Belgium's Nicolas Colsaerts edged out Paul Casey of England by one hole.
Scotland's Marc Warren levelled the scores with a 4&3 win over Dane Thorbjorn Olesen, but Italy's Matteo Manassero beat Stephen Gallacher 3&2 and Spanish veteran Miguel Angel Jimenez was a 6&4 winner against David Lynn to put Europe within half a point of clinching victory.
Scotland’s Paul Lawrie pulled one back with a 2&1 success over Finn Mikko Ilonen, but Molinari bagged the winning point for Jose Maria Olazabal's side with a long-range put, putting the game to bed and giving Europe their first win in the coveted Seve Trophy since 2000.
