The Royal Selangor Trophy

The Royal Selangor Trophy is awarded to the golfer with the lowest total score in the four Major Championships each year. It is a 16-round competition which combines the four rounds from the Masters, the US Open, the Open Championship and the PGA Championship. To compete in the event, a golfer must qualify, play, and make the cut in all four majors.

The idea to combine all the 16 Majors Championship scores came about in 1999. A golfer who participates in the 288 holes played on 16 separate days of the Majors which is spread over 4 months has superior consistency and ability. This event might be considered an even greater challenge than any one tournament. The list of winners shows how few have been successful. Only 33 golfers in nearly 60 years have won this trophy.


The 2018 Royal Selangor Trophy was presented to Justin Rose at Walton Heath Golf Club on 10 October 2018 by Peter Coleman, Director, Royal Selangor International. Justin Rose had the lowest score of -12 for the combined scores of the four Majors played in 2018.

 
History

The event started in 1960 when Arnold Palmer played, and won the Open Championship.

That year he played in all three US-based Majors and made the cut in each tournament, so he was the first person to complete all Majors within a year.

Over time the importance of the Majors became established as the European, Asian, Japanese and Australasian tours expanded. Each year many tournaments are played worldwide, which contribute to the World Golf Rankings. The four Majors are, and will always be the most respected tournaments. Professional golfers and fans of the game rank players by their performance in the Majors.

 

Tiger Woods was the first recipient of the original trophy in 1999. It was presented in Kuala Lumpur at a function before he competed in the World Cup that year, with Mark O'Meara.

The first trophy was a Royal Selangor pewter bowl set on a rosewood base. The idea of the trophy was conceived by Colin MacGillivray, an architect working in Malaysia at the time. He assembled the trophy with names of the previous winners on the base, and arranged for its presentation to Tiger Woods. He had been compiling the total scores from the Majors for several years.

 
Annual Schedules

The four Major Championships are run by individual golf organisations and played from April to July each year.

 

The Masters Tournament is organised by the Augusta National Golf Club, and was started by Bobby Jones, the legendary golf amateur champion, in 1934.

 

The United States Professional Golfers Association Championship takes place in May. First played in 1916, it is organised by the PGA of America, not to be confused with the PGA Tour.

 

The United States Golf Association organises the United States Open Championship, which from next year (2019) onwards will be played in June. The first tournament was held in 1895.

 

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews has organised the Open Championship, also known as the British Open since 1860. It is always played in July.
The final round of the Open Championship from next year 2019 onwards will be the deciding round for the Royal Selangor Trophy.
