The Presidents Cup isn’t the only match-play event being contested next week.

In France, 20 European Tour players will tee it up at the Seve Trophy.

Captained by Jose Maria Olazabal, Continental Europe features Thomas Bjorn, Gregory Bourdy, Nicolas Colsaerts, Peter Hanson, Mikko Ilonen, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Joost Luiten, Matteo Manassero, Francesco Molinari and Thorbjorn Olesen.

Representing Team GB&I, captained by Sam Torrance, will be Paul Casey, Jamie Donaldson, Stephen Gallacher, Tommy Fleetwood, Scott Jamieson, Simon Khan, Paul Lawrie, David Lynn, Marc Warren and Chris Wood.

The two teams were chosen from the leading five available players from the latest world rankings and the leading five available players from the Race to Dubai.

The format for the four-day event calls for five fourball matches on the first two days, two sessions of four foursomes on Saturday, and 10 singles matches on the final day.

Team GB&I has won the last six matches, including a 15 ½-to-12 ½ victory two years ago at St-Nom-La Breteche Golf Club.
