Patsy Hankins Trophy in Portugal

Asia-Pacific regain clear lead in final set of 

singles but Chloe Williams wins tie by 6 and 5

Europe's women took the lead for the first time in the inaugural Patsy Hankins Trophy match against their Asia-Pacific counterpars at Vidago Palace in northern Portugal ... but a surge in the later singles took Asia-Pacific into a 14.5 to 10.5 lead.
Asia-Pacific led 7-3 at the end of Day 1 but the Europeans took the Day 2 honours 6.5 to 3.5.
So, at the start of the final set of singles on Day 3, Asia-Pacific's lead had been cut to one point (10.5 to 9.5)
 women's college golf circuit tournament.
But the visitors have piled up the points in the singles just when it looked as if Europe were on a roll that would carry them to victory

ASIA-PACIFIC lead EUROPE 14.5 to 10.5 

Chloe Williams from Wrexham, a late substitute for the sick Olivia Mehaffey, was five up after eight holes in her singles against Han-Hsuan Yung from Chinese Taipei and went on to win by 6 and 5
England's Meghan MacLaren is one up on South Korea's Hyun Kyung with not many holes to play. Victory by Meghan is essential if Europe are going to peg back the Asian-Pacific team before the end of the day.
