Paul Dunne ready to perform in potential Ryder Cup audition

Paul Dunne ready to perform in potential Ryder Cup audition

He has since returned to the Tour and has been selected by current Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn for the upcoming the EurAsia Cup in Kuala Lumpur.

Playing in his second EurAsia Cup, the six-time Asian Tour victor is looking forward to the clash with 12 of Europe's best players at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club.

Sweden's Alex Noren and Ireland's Paul Dunne then take on Hideto Tanihara and Phachara Khongwatmai, with Henrik Stenson and Alexander Levy up against Sunghoon Kang and Poom Saksansin, while Bernd Wiesberger and Rafa Cabrera Bello face Nicholas Fung and Li Haotong.

The US-based player has been convinced by Thomas Bjorn, the home captain for this autumn's encounter in France, to take up that membership again this season and Casey insisted he is over what happened back in 2010.

Captain Thomas Bjorn, the Dane will also be skipper against the United States, has paired him with Alex Noren in Friday's opening fourballs. Yes, I can spend time with them on Tour, but there they are very into their own commitments and what they want to do.

Dunne is now well-placed in the Ryder Cup standings at seventh in the European points list and sixth in the world points list but there is still a long way to go before the team is finalised.

The EurAsia Cup will feature 24 matches, with one day of six Fourball matches, followed by six Foursome matches and 12 Singles matches on the third day.

Asia captain Atwal believes his youthful team, which boasts 11 European Tour titles between them, including multiple winners Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand and India's SSP Chawrasia, has the strength in depth to turn the contest in Asia's favour. Writing in a player blog on the European Tour website, Dunne says he is fully aware of how this week could impact on his chances of booking a place at Le Golf National later this year.

"I'm excited to play and happy with everybody on the team. So for me, it has been a little bit of a challenge but it's fun, as well".

"In terms of how all-consuming the captaincy is, I really feel it's on my mind 24/7", he said.

"I really think it will really help to hopefully have a few more events like this and grow the game even more".

In three previous rounds of the EurAsia Cup, 37-year-old Fisher has an 83.33 per cent winning percentage with two wins and one half.

Promising young Malaysian Gavin Green, the latest Asian Tour Order of Merit victor, is among a handful on the Asian side playing in the event at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club for the first time.
