Seve Ballesteros

The Royal Trophy originated in concert with the vision of the late legendary five-time Major winner Seve Ballesteros, his nephew and former manager 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.

In the making of a most amazing sporting drama; the fourth edition of the Royal Trophy came down to the final putt on the 18th hole in the final match of the Championship, which featured Sweden’s Henrik Stenson and Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee in an epic battle.

The fifth edition of the Royal Trophy was held at the magnificent Black Mountain Golf Club in the beautiful coastal city of Hua Hin in the Kingdom of Thailand.
