The second edition of the Royal Trophy saw massive galleries of avid golf enthusiasts flock to the pristine Amata Spring Country Club over three days of the competition, beautiful weather, unprecedented media coverage, a display of the highest standard of team golf, 22-year old Thai player Prom Meesawat coming of age, excellent live television broadcast in Thailand and throughout the world and a great show of sportsmanship by the Captains, Players and the fans.
The Royal Trophy was honored by the presence of His Excellency General Prem Tinsulanonda, President of the Privy Council of His Majesty the King who delivered the Key Note Speech at the Gala Banquet and officially presented the Royal Trophy to the European Team Captain, the legendary Seve Ballesteros who led his Team to success for the second year.
In the words of Ballesteros himself: “The Royal Trophy is becoming the greatest force for the further development of golf in Asia, in the same manner that the Ryder Cup played such a role for the European Continent in the 1980s and 1990s.”
