The Eurobet Seve Ballesteros Trophy*
Sunningdale Golf Club (Old Course)
Berkshire, England 14 Apr 2000 - 16 Apr 2000
CONTINENTAL EUROPE WIN FIRST EUROBET SEVE BALLESTEROS TROPHY
Continental Europe won the inaugural Eurobet Seve Ballesteros Trophy at Sunningdale Golf Club after a titanic struggle with Great Britain and Ireland. Ballesteros, after whom the trophy was named – and whose vision inspired the concept of this superb new event – rolled back the years with a marvellous singles victory over his rival captain, Colin Montgomerie, to lead his team to victory by the minimum margin of 13 ½- 12 ½. Remarkably, it had taken only three days to establish a tradition.
