The Royal Trophy Golf Tournament 2007
Oops, we did it again!
In what was dubbed the ‘battle of the continents', Seve Ballesteros' European team proved too strong for the Asian team of Japanese captain Joe Osaki, by winning the coveted Royal Trophy for the second time around with a final score of 12 ½ over 3 ½. The Europeans also won the inaugural tournament a year earlier. The prestigious three-day event, held at Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi Province about an hour from Bangkok , drew thousands of spectators and supporters of the star-studded line-up of players representing both sides. Asia Web Direct, as the official online hotel partner, was there too, nurturing aspirant (future) talent with a popular mini-golf game that rewarded birdies, eagles and hole-in-ones with pink umbrellas!
