Ballesteros aiming for 2010 Royal Trophy
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) Seve Ballesteros is aiming to captain Europe in next year's Royal Trophy matchplay tournament against Asia.
Ballesteros missed the 2009 event after undergoing surgery to treat a brain tumor.
The dates for the 2010 event were finalized Wednesday. It will be held at the Amata Spring Country Club in Thailand from Jan. 8-10.
``I sincerely hope to captain the European team at the next editions of the Royal Trophy,'' Ballesteros said in a statement. ``Europe and Asia coming together for the Royal Trophy is very significant and this is a competition that means a lot to me.''
Europe won the 2006 and 2007 events.
