Miguel Angel Jimenez decides wildcard picks for EurAsia Cup

Pablo Larrazabal and Thorbjorn Olesen have been announced by skipper Miguel Angel Jimenez as his two wildcard picks heading into the European team for next month’s EurAsia Cup match in Thailand.

The pair will join the eight automatic qualifiers for the three-day match against Asia at Glenmarie Country Club in Kuala Lumpur; teeing off on March 27.

Larrazabal already has a victory to his name in 2014 after successfully fending off Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy on the final day of the highly-entertaining Abu Dhabi last month.

Olesen also played during the Desert Swing after a top-three finish in Qatar, with a tie for fifth in Dubai.

Larrazabal and Olesen will join up with Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño, Stephen Gallacher, Joost Luiten and Graeme McDowell who have already qualified alongside playing-captain Jimenez.

"I made a great start to the season with the win in Abu Dhabi and I hope to repay Miguel's faith in me," Larrazabal said in a statement.
