Jacques Léglise Trophy

Jump to: navigation, search

The Jacques Léglise Trophy is an annual amateur boys' team golf competition between Great Britain & Ireland and the Continent of Europe. It was inaugurated in 1958 and is organised by the R&A. Great Britain & Ireland dominated in the early years to such an extent that it was discontinued in 1966.[1] It was revived in 1977 and the Continental team won for the first time that year. In recent years the teams have been quite evenly matched. Up to 1998 it was always played in Great Britain or Ireland but since then a number of matches have been played on the continent. Many leading professional golfers played in the Jacques Léglise Trophy as boys, for example Sergio García and Luke Donald.

Currently the teams are nine strong and the tournament is played over two days, with four foursomes in the morning and either eight or nine singles matches in the afternoon. The Great Britain & Ireland team is selected by the R&A and the Continent of Europe side by the European Golf Association.

Results[edit]

The Great Britain & Ireland team has won the event 36 times, while Continental Europe has 10 victories. The 2015 match ended in a tie and so Great Britain & Ireland retained the trophy.
