Prizes are awarded in the celebratory atmosphere of an exclusive dinner at the Mercedes-Benz dealership. Alongside the national competition, prizes are also awarded to the best individual players, and there is a Team Spirit Award which Franz Beckenbauer presented to the team from South Africa last year. The defending Nation Cup champion is Team East Asia, which won the event with a total of 195 points. Second and third place went to Great Britain and the Netherlands with 193 and 191 points respectively.
Those participating in the MercedesTrophy World Final are battling for the final place in this year's special competition "Drive to the Major". Everyone taking part in the MercedesTrophy world-wide has a chance of participating in another unique golf event. Contestants can win a place in the qualification tournament for the "Monday After Event" in the "Straightest Drive" competition. As official patron of the world's oldest golf tournament, Mercedes-Benz gives players the chance to tee off on the same course on which the professional golfers were battling for victory on the previous day. Furthermore, the winners get to experience the Open Championship as Mercedes-Benz's VIP guests.
The special competition "Nearest to the Pin" is sponsored by Laureus Academy members and Brand Ambassadors Franz Beckenbauer and Boris Becker. In addition to receiving the amounts donated during the MercedesTrophy World Final, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation also benefits from all the donations at the MercedesTrophy qualification tournaments played around the world. Mercedes-Benz is a founder member of the foundation, which tackles social challenges worldwide using funds raised through sport. It currently sponsors over 140 social projects worldwide, primarily aimed at helping children and young people affected by poverty, homelessness, war, violence, drug misuse, discrimination and AIDS.
