Highlighted above is the full list of players now selected for Team Europe & USA for the 25th Anniversary Phoenix Cup.  In light of the ongoing issues being caused by the Coronavirus restrictions and the uncertainty as to when The SDGC Order of Merit Championship matches will be able to resume, the SDGC Management Committee has regrettably taken the decision to abandon the intended criteria for Team Europe for the 2020 Phoenix Cup selection purposes.


After discussions between Team Captain Iain Ross, Vice Captain Gordon Latto & the SDGC Management Committee, the Management Committee have now approved four final selections to complete Team Europe, so as not to prolong any uncertainty as to when the team would be completed.  The SDGC believe this European Team encompasses a broad and fair representation of our SDGC members abilities and disabilities which is always its objective.


Both the European and USA Team Captain’s realise that in the current situation, there may be some changes to the golfers on either team, whether enforced or otherwise, but the 25th Phoenix Cup will be played at the five highly prestigious courses in September, as the next four Phoenix Cup and Scottish Open events are already arranged for September 2021 through 2024.


The SDGC is enormously proud to have been the first group in the world to incorporate golfers of any age, with any type of ability or disability, onto one team.
