Sweden, France, and Denmark claim 2019 European Team Championship Titles

The 2019 European Team Champioships have concluded across the continent. An exciting final day of matches has crowned four winning teams from three countries.

Sweden won both the men's and ladies' titles, Denmark triumphed in the Girls' Team Championship, and France won the Jean-Louis Dupont Trophy at Golf de Chantilly.


European Amateur Team Championship

Sweden have won the 2019 European Amateur Team Championship at Ljunghusen Golf Club. The Swedish team, looking to end a 58-year drought for the title, faced England in the championship match. The first morning foursomes match of the final went to England. Tom Plumb and Tom Sloman secured a 2&1 victory over Ludvig Aberg and Christoffer Palsson, but Sweden tied the session with a win of their own from David Nyfjall and Vincent Norrman.

The first two points of the afternoon session went to the hosts: Pontus Nyholm won on the 18th, while Ludvig Aberg claimed a 3&1 victory. 

England the got one back with Harry Hall winning 2&1, But the Swedish team needed just one more win to seal victory. The deciding point was delivered by Albin Bergstrom in the final match to give Sweden it's first European Amateur Team Championship title since 1961. 

In the match for third place, last year's bronze medallists, Denmark, took on Scotland.

After securing both of the morning foursomes points, the Scottish team lost the afternoon session. Although one-up wins from Euan Walker and Ryan Lumsden were enough for the four points needed to clinch the last spot on the podium.

European Ladies' Team Championship

Sweden have also won the 2019 european Ladies' Team Championship at Is Molas Resort. The Swedish team defeated Spain in the final to secure back-to-back titles. Linn Grant and Maja Stark put the first point on the board, defeating Teresa Toscano and Ana Pelaez 4&3. The second foursomes match went down the 18th, but Frida Kinhult and Beatrice Wallin held on to their lead to make it 2-0 for Sweden, and keep the team's perfect record in the foursomes matches throughout the week.

The Swedish team needed just two points from the afternoon singles to lift the trophy for the ninth time. The Spanish team were up in two of the matches after lunch, but never looked like they were going to recover the deficit.

Sara Kjellker won her match 4&3 leaving Sweden within a single point of the title. Fittingly, Frida Kinhult, the number-one ranked amateur player in the world, secured the decisive fourth point for Sweden on the 16th green. 

In the match for third place, hosts, Italy, took on Germany. The morning foursomes points were shared. Aline Krauter and Sarina Schmidt won 2&1 for Germany, while Alessandra Fanali and Anna Zanusso picked up a point for Italy.

The Italians dominated the afternoon session however, winning the first three singles matches to put four points on the board, and secure the bronze medals.

European Boys' Team Championship, Jean-Louis Dupont Trophy

France have won the 2019 Jean-Louis Dupont Trophy at Golf de Chantilly. After finishing in the final qualification spot for the Flight A match play, the French team upset top-qualifiers, Spain, in the quarter-finals, and then defeated Sweden to set up a final match with Germany.

The first point of the final went to the German team: Frederik Schott and Tiger Christensen secured victory on the 17th green to put their team in the lead. Although in the second match just behind them, Charles Larcelet and Nicolas Muller made the score 1-1 with a 2&1 win.

The afternoon session always looked like it was going in favour of the host team. Tom Vaillant defeated Frederik Schott 4&3 in the first match to give the French team the lead. Nicolas Muller then won 3&2 to put France within just one point of securing their fourth ever title in the event. Nathan Trey secured the decisive point for the French team in the final match with a 3&2 victory.

Sweden took on Ireland in a close match for third place. The points from the morning foursomes session were shared, and the first two matches of the afternoon went to extra holes, with one point going to each team once again.

That meant the tie would come down to the last three matches. Algot Kleen won 6&5 for Sweden, while Luke O'Neill secured a 5&4 victory for Ireland. Gustav Andersson delivered the decisive victory for the Swedes, winning 2&1 to earn his team the bronze medals.

After losing both of the morning foursomes matches, the Danish girls managed to win four of the five afternoon singles to progress to the semi-finals.

When facing Germany in the final-four, the Danish team lost out in both of the foursomes matches once again, but recovered for a second time in a dramatic afternoon session that went down to the 21st hole of the deciding match. 

The Danish team's victories earned them a championship match with the hosts, Spain.

Denmark made the score 1-0 after winning their first foursomes match of the week, but Spain responded with a victory of their own on the second extra hole.
