2013 Seve Trophy

This was the eighth — and it turns out, final — time the Seve Trophy was played. After the Continental Europe victory, the overall standings in the event's history was Great Britain & Ireland 6, Continental Europe 2.

Final Score: Continental Europe 15, Great Britain & Ireland 13

Dates Played: Oct. 3-6, 2013

Location: Golf de Saint-Nom-la-Breteche in Paris, France

Team Captains: Jose Maria Olazabal (Europe) and Sam Torrance (GB&I)

Team Rosters: Continental Europe - Matteo Manassero, Peter Hanson, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Thomas Bjorn, Francesco Molinari, Joost Luiten, Mikko Ilonen, Thorbjorn Olesen, Gregory Bourdy, Nicolas Colsaerts. Great Britain & Ireland - Jamie Donaldson, David Lynn, Stephen Gallacher, Chris Wood, Paul Lawrie, Marc Warren, Scott Jamieson, Paul Casey, Tommy Fleedwood, Simon Khan.

Notes: The first three days of play were a wash - nine points per side. So it came down to singles, and the European victory was clinched by Francesco Molinari with a win over Chris Wood in the final match. It was Europe's first Seve Trophy win since the inaugural one in 2000.
