Preview: 2019 European Men's Club Trophy

The final event of the 2019 EGA Championship season takes place this week at Golf du Médoc Resort, Bourdeaux.

The Chateaux Course, which will host the world's best amateur players for the 2020 European Amateur Championship, will provide the test to the year's national champion golf clubs for the third consecutive time.

25 teams will compete for this year's European Men's Club Trophy title, including defending champions, Racing Club de France La Boulie. 

The format is as follows: Teams are made up of three members each, with all players completing three rounds of stroke play. The two lowest of each team's three scores count each day, meaning a total of six scores will make up the clubs' final totals.

Racing Club de France La Boulie successfully defended the title last year, making it three wins out of four since 2015. The French club, who are the most successful team in the event's history, will have the chance to lift the trophy for a record-extending eighth time this week.

The other 24 teams in the field will be looking to win the event for the first time.

Of the 75 players in the field, 48 have entered with a handicap of 0.0 or lower.

Michael Hirmer, representing Stuttgarter Golf Club Solitude, is the highest ranked player in the field. Currently 38th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR), the German player has represented his team at the European Amateur Team Championship in both of the last two seasons.

Ronan Mullarney is another player to watch this week. The Irish national team player, representing Galway Golf Club, won the Irish Amateur Close Championship in August.

Kiet Van der Weele will be looking to lead Rosendaelsche Golf Club to their first title in the event. The Dutch national team player represented the Continent of Europe in the 2018 Jacques Léglise Trophy
