Continental Europe has Day 1 lead
SAINT-NOM-LA-BRETECHE, France -- Continental Europe made a solid start in the Seve Trophy by opening a two-point lead against Britain & Ireland after the opening-day fourballs on Thursday.
The European team won three of the five pairings on a day of mixed weather conditions. The Europeans have lost the past six meetings and are trying to win the trophy for the first time since the inaugural contest in 2000.
But Europe won the second and fourth matches, with the third game halved.
