2012 Champions: Continent of Europe
The Continent of Europe defeated Great Britain and Ireland to win the 2012 St Andrews Trophy Match at Portmarnock, Ireland. After trailing 7-5 after the first day's play, an immpresive 3-1 victory in the morning foursomes levelled proceedings before the Continent edged a dramatic singles session 4.5-3.5 to secure victory, 12.5-11.5.
It was the Continent’s first victory in the biennial team event on GB&I soil. This was only the Continent of Europe's fifth win in the biennial St Andrews Trophy compared to the GB&I tally of 24 since the competition began in 1956.

St Andrews & Jacques Leglise Trophy Matches - The Teams
The teams previewed for the matches to be played on 31 August - 1 September at Portmarnock Golf Club...
The St Andrews Trophy is the biennial equivalent of the annual Jacques Leglise Trophy for men. Both matches comprise four morning foursomes followed by eight afternoon singles on two consecutive days.
In 1955 The R&A suggested to the European Golf Association that there should be an international match between Great Britain & Ireland and the Continent of Europe. The first match was played at Wentworth and the series has continued on a biennial basis in non- Walker Cup years. The first encounter was a resounding success for the home team, but in recent years, playing alternately home and away the Continental teams have recorded victories. The St Andrews Trophy was presented by The R&A in 1963.
The R&A uses proceeds generated by The Open Championship to develop the game around the world. View the Global Activity Map to find out where and how The R&A is Working for Golf.
