The grandstands are ready. The newly remodelled West Course is ready. The world’s best players are ready. Are you ready for the sheer excitement of the BMW PGA Championship?
The European Tour’s flagship event takes place at Wentworth Club next week and, as our special aeriel view shows, there is no better place in golf for the drama to unfold.
Paul Casey will defend his BMW PGA Championship title against one of the strongest fields ever to have assembled for The European Tour’s flagship event, with five of the World’s Top Ten set to tee it up over Wentworth Club’s newly remodelled West Course.
European Number One Lee Westwood, Race to Dubai leader Ian Poulter and defending champion Casey will be joined next week by three-time Major Champion and course designer Ernie Els and the exciting Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy.
With World Number 11 Martin Kaymer and three-time Major Champion Padraig Harrington also in the field, there are 21 players from the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking. No fewer than 26 of the top 30 in The Race to Dubai be challenging for lion’s share of the €4,500,000 prize fund.
The winners of ten of the last 12 PGA Championships at Wentworth Club will be present including multiple champions Anders Hansen of Denmark, winner in 2002 and 2007, and Europe’s Ryder Cup Captain Colin Montgomerie, winner of a hat-trick of titles from 1998 to 2000.
The roll-call of champions continues with 17 of the 19 winners from the 2010 European Tour International Schedule competing over the famous Surrey venue. It truly is a golf tournament you cannot afford to miss.
