The teams competed over four days with five fourball matches on both Thursday and Friday, four greensomes matches on Saturday morning, four foursomes matches on Saturday afternoon and ten singles on Sunday. It means a total of 28 points are available with 14 ½ points required for victory. If the score finished at 14-14, then two players from each team would play the 18th using the greensomes format to find the winner.

Each member of the winner team received 125,000, the losing team €75,000 each, giving a total prize fund of €2,000,000.[1]


The teams were made up of four players from the Official World Golf Ranking list, four players from the European points list, and two captain's pick. However, there were a number of players who qualified for the trophy, but pulled out. These include: Henrik Stenson, Pádraig Harrington, Sergio García and Lee Westwood.[2][3]
