LONDON – Second-ranked Lee Westwood and British Open champion Darren Clarke have been included in Britain & Ireland’s team for next week’s Vivendi Seve Trophy against Continental Europe in Paris.
Top-ranked Luke Donald of England and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland will miss the match, but Britain & Ireland captain Paul McGinley can also call on Ian Poulter and Ross Fisher, who were part of Europe’s 2010 Ryder Cup-winning team.
Jean Van de Velde's Continental Europe side includes Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn, a back-to-back winner in the last two European Tour events, and Italy’s Matteo Manassero, who at 18 years and 152 days becomes the youngest player in the tournament’s history.
The four-day tournament is held from Sept. 15-18.
Continental Europe will seek to end the domination of Britain & Ireland in the Vivendi Seve Trophy when both teams square off this week on the golf course of Saint-Nom-la-Breteche. Read More
