More about the Eisenhower Trophy

The World Men's Amateur Team Championships has become one of the most prestigious amateur golf events in the world.

The Eisenhower Trophy was first played in 1958.

The tournament is named after former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was president at the time, was a keen golfer and played a key role in the development of golf in the United States.

The tournament is open to all male amateur golfers who are members of national golf associations that are members of the IGF.

The competition is held over four days, with each team playing 72 holes of stroke play.

The total score of the best two players from each team is used to determine the team's score for each round, and the team with the lowest cumulative score over the four rounds is declared the winner.
