PARIS, Oct. 4 (UPI) -- David Lynn and Scott Jamison closed fast for a win Friday that pulled Great Britain and Ireland to within one point of Continental Europe in the Seve Cup.
Friday's five contests were fourball matches. There are two sessions of four foursomes scheduled for Saturday.
Molinari and Manassero were 2-up through six holes and still held that lead going into the 14th hole. But Lynn birdied 14 and a 17th-hole birdie by Jamieson squared the match. Jamieson added a 6-foot birdie putt at 18 to grab the point for GBI.
Paul Casey and Simon Kahn posted a 3-and-2 win over Mikko Ilonen and Thorbjorn Olesen and Jamie Donaldson teamed with Marc Warren for a 4-and-2 victory over Thomas Bjorn and Miguel Angel Jimenez for the other GBI points Friday.
Nicolas Colsaerts and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano posted a 6-and-5 win over Paul Lawrie and Stephen Gallacher but Joost Luiten and Gregory Bourdy's 1-up CE win over Tommy Fleetwood and Chris Wood only happened after Fleetwood missed a 6-foot birdie putt on 18.
The Seve Trophy is a biennial event in which a team of golfers from Continental Europe takes on a team from Great Britain and Ireland. Continental Europe won the inaugural tournament in 2000 but the GBI team has won the last six, including a 15 1/2-12 1/2 win in 2011.
