Earlier this year (or late last year) we published a list of the five ugliest trophies on the PGA Tour.

On a related note, the winner of this week’s Trophee Hassan, Jorge Campillo, didn’t receive what you’d call a traditional trophy, but instead was awarded a “diamond-encrusted dagger.”

When viewing the photo as part of our recap, it reminded us of our popular “ugly trophy” post.

And we’re not alone: In an Instagram slideshow, published by the European Tour, the “dagger” was included as one of the ‘10 Most Unusual Trophies on Tour.’
