2003 Seve Trophy

|Great Britain and Ireland wins the Seve Trophy|
The 2003 Seve Trophy took place 6–9 November at Campo de Golf Parador El Saler, Valencia, Spain. The team captain for Continental Europe was Seve Ballesteros, with the team captain for Great Britain and Ireland being Colin Montgomerie. The competition was won by Great Britain and Ireland.
For the first time the event was staged over four days. There were five fourball matches on both Thursday and Friday, four greensomes matches on Saturday morning, four foursomes matches on Saturday afternoon and ten singles matches on Sunday. If the score finished at 14–14, then two players from each team (but not either captain) would play a two hole play-off using the greensomes format to find the winner.
Each member of the winner team received €150,000, the losing team €70,000 each, giving a total prize fund of €2,200,000.
Both captains played and had one wild card selection each. The remaining 8 players were the leading four players from the Official World Golf Ranking after the 2003 Telefónica Open de Madrid and the leading four players (not qualified from the World Rankings) from the Volvo Order of Merit after the 2003 Telefónica Open de Madrid.
