Espirito Santo Trophy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Espirito Santo Trophy is a biennial world amateur team golf championship for women organised by the International Golf Federation. The inaugural event was held in 1964; it was planned by Mrs. Henri Prunaret from America and Lally Segard from France.[1] Segard also asked her friends Ricardo and Silvia Espirito Santo to donate a trophy for the event, which they did.[1]

Recent tournaments have featured teams from around 50 countries. It is a stroke play event, in which the best two individual scores in each team count towards the final score. For the first three decades it was dominated by the United States, but recent results have reflected the increasing globalisation of women's golf, with six different winners in six events from 1996 to 2006, and several top two placings by teams from Asia, including three wins by South Korea.

The equivalent "World Amateur Team Championship" for men is the Eisenhower Trophy.
