St Andrews Trophy

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

The St Andrews Trophy is a biennial men's team golf tournament contested between teams of amateur golfers representing Great Britain & Ireland and Continental Europe. It takes its name from St Andrews in Scotland, which is colloquially known as the "Home of Golf". The competition was founded in 1955 and first played in 1956. It takes place in even numbered years (Great Britain & Ireland plays in the United States in the Walker Cup in odd numbered years). It is staged alternately in Great Britain & Ireland and on the Continent, and is organised by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews and the European Golf Association. The St Andrews Trophy itself was presented by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews in 1963.

The event comprises four morning foursomes followed by eight afternoon singles on two consecutive days. The players are predominantly young men in their late teens and early twenties who are working towards a career as professional golfers. Many leading European golfers have played in the St Andrews Trophy, for example Colin Montgomerie and José María Olazábal.
