Atwal determined to win EurAsia Cup

The local heroes are expected to pull in big crowds to the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club when Asia takes on a Thomas Bjorn-led Team Europe in the three-day Ryder Cup-styled event, which will tee off on Jan 12.

"I used all of December to get these thoughts down on paper and get my head straight about how I want this team to take shape".

"I was coming into the last half of the year with this being a big goal of mine to make the team, and so I'm delighted that I'm here and hopefully we can have a good week", Dunne said yesterday.

Atwal's strategic pairing of Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai and Japan's Hideto Tanihara where there is a mix of youth and experience could prove to be the difference as they face off with Sweden's Alex Noren and Ireland's Paul Dunne.

"I've never questioned the captain's decision in any team event I've played in, whether I was amateur or professional".

Casey, who played on winning teams in both 2004 and 2006, is determined to boost his chances of making a Ryder Cup return in Paris by putting on a strong show in a team that also includes Henrik Stenson and Tommy Fleetwood. You don't want to let him down and he doesn't want to let you down and you still obviously have got to play two other guys and you're trying to beat them.

Seasoned Ryder Cup golfer Paul Casey of England and France's Alex Levy completes Team Europe as the two wildcards picked by Bjorn.

"I think this is good for us, giving us encouragement and motivation".

Fitzpatrick, who made his Ryder Cup debut alongside Pieters at Hazeltine, added: "Just to add on Ross' point, I think golf does need a little bit of a different format, maybe more team events, maybe more partner events. We're a long, long way from it, but another opportunity is what I'm here for and here is just the start of it". "You can be underdogs on paper, but once the matches start, anything can happen".

"But it was disappointing that I didn't play good enough golf to make enough points to make the team".

Now back in the European team fold for the first time in ten years at this week's EurAsia Cup, Casey has reflected on his omission back in 2010 and said he holds no grudges against the eight-time European Tour Order of Merit victor.
