Golf / Seve Ballesteros Trophy

This trophy was played in 2000 for the first time as a challenge between the British Isles and Continental Europe and with a similar system to that of the Ryder Cup. It was named after Severiano Ballesteros, Spanish 5-time Grand Slam winner who also led Europe as captain to victory in Ryder Cup ´97 (and Continental Europe in the first edition of his own trophy).
