Europe thrash USA to defend Mosconi Cup crown.
Having already held a commanding 8-2 lead heading into the third day, Europe did not drop a game on the final day with pair Niels Feijen and Mika Immonen securing victory for the side.
The European pair defeated American double Dennis Hatch and Rodney Morris 6-2 in the final frame after the side had already won the first two games of the day.
Darren Appleton and Ralf Souquet beat Hatch and Earl Strickland 6-3, whilst Karl Boyes 6-4 win over Strickland took Europe to within one point of regaining the title.
Immonen and Feijen – who would later be named MVP of the tournament – duly obliged and finished off the job in the next frame to secure Europe’s sixth win in the competition in the last seven years.
