Formerly called the Seve Trophy, this biennial event pits two teams of professionals against each other -- one from Great Britain & Ireland and one from Continental Europe. The Ryder Cup-style match, which is still honoring Spanish great Seve Ballesteros, will take place over four days and features matches played in four ball, greensomes, foursomes and singles formats. European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie hand-picked the captains for both teams, selecting Denmark`s Thomas Bjorn to lead the Continental Europe team and Ireland`s Paul McGinley to skipper the Great Britain & Ireland side. Bjorn`s 10-man team includes Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Anders Hansen, Soren Hansen, Peter Hanson, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Robert Karlsson, Soren Kjeldsen, Francesco Molinari, Alvaro Quiros and Henrik Stenson. McGinley`s side features Nick Dougherty, Simon Dyson, Ross Fisher, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy, Robert Rock, Anthony Wall, Steve Webster, Oliver Wilson and Chris Wood. Nick Faldo led the Great Britain & Ireland team to a five-point win in 2007, its fourth consecutive victory over the Continental Europeans, who haven`t captured the trophy since its inaugural year in 2000. A total of 28 points are awarded over the four days, with 14 1/2 needed to win the trophy. Golf Channel will have coverage of all four days. Next week is the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, where Robert Karlsson won last year.
