THE ROYAL TROPHY
The Royal Trophy originated in concert with the vision of the late legendary five-time Major winner Seve Ballesteros, his nephew Ivan Ballesteros and sports entrepreneur Lincoln Venancio; who dreamt to gift the Asian Continent with the same golf growth impetus the European Continent experienced in the 1980s and 1990s as a result of the Ryder Cup.
Europe prevailed in the first two editions of the Championship while Asia secured a most historic victory over the European masters of team match play in 2009 – possibly the Asian Continent’s most important achievement in the sport to date.
