English favourites return to Wentworth for BMW PGA Championship 

Major champions Matt Fitzpatrick, Justin Rose and Danny Willett will tee it up alongside fellow countryman and Ryder Cup teammate Tommy Fleetwood at the BMW PGA Championship from September 17-22, with tickets available here.


The quartet are the latest to be announced as part of the world-class field set to descend on Wentworth Club for the Rolex Series event, including defending champion Ryan Fox, alongside past winners Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry, and Billy Horschel.

Fleetwood, who enjoyed a second Ryder Cup triumph alongside Fitzpatrick and Rose in Rome, started his year with a seventh DP World Tour title at the Dubai Invitational in January. He continued that form into the first Major of the year, finishing tied third at Augusta National.

The former European Number One returns to the famous Surrey venue for his 13th consecutive appearance at the BMW PGA Championship following his best finish in the event last year.

“Wentworth is always an incredible week, especially for us English players, and I’m excited to play in front of my family and the home crowds at the BMW PGA Championship,” said the World Number 13. “The fans always make it a memorable tournament and that’s why I love playing it.”

Fitzpatrick, who claimed his maiden Major title at the 2022 U.S. Open and was part of the victorious European Ryder Cup team in Rome last year, will go in search of a tenth DP World Tour title when he tees it up this September.

“The BMW PGA Championship is always a highlight on my calendar,” said Fitzpatrick. “I've had a few chances to contend at Wentworth over the years, and as a Rolex Series event, it has grown to create an incredible atmosphere for the players, fans and everyone involved."

Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion and 2016 Olympic Gold Medallist, had an impressive 2023 season, securing his 11th PGA TOUR win and his first worldwide title in four years at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February, before celebrating a fourth Ryder Cup victory in Rome.

The Englishman was back at the top of Major leaderboards just weeks ago following his tied sixth finish at the 2024 US PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club.

“The English fans are always appreciative of good golf, and they add so much to what is a great week,” said Rose. “The BMW PGA Championship is a tournament that I always look forward to returning to and it will be nice to be back at Wentworth with my family and friends.”

Willett claimed his second Rolex Series title at the 2019 BMW PGA Championship and has recently returned to competitive golf, making the cut at Augusta National this year in his first start for over six months, following reconstructive shoulder surgery.

The former Masters Champion has eight DP World Tour wins to his name and will tee it up at Wentworth Club as he looks to regain the form that led him to a Major championship.

“Winning the BMW PGA Championship in 2019 in front of my family and friends was a huge moment in my career. I have some special memories and I have drawn on that as I continue my return to golf after injury. The fans bring an incredible vibe all week at Wentworth, so I’m looking forward to another great event in September.”

The BMW PGA Championship Festival of Golf takes place just outside central London, attracting more than 100,000 spectators each year, with the world class action inside the ropes set to be complemented by live entertainment on the Showstage, and an unrivalled atmosphere in the vibrant Spectator Village.

The G4D TOUR @ BMW PGA Championship will take place at the start of the week, with some of the best golfers with a disability competing for the penultimate G4D Tour title on the iconic West Course on Monday September 16 and Tuesday September 17.

That is followed by the star-studded Wednesday Celebrity Pro-Am which will see Hollywood actor Tom Holland and his brothers Harry and Sam alongside global celebrities and some of golf’s most famous players in a fun-filled curtain raiser to the main event, the BMW PGA Championship, which tees off on Thursday September 19.

The Rolex Series tournament assumes a key position on the DP World Tour’s 2024 Global Schedule as part of the ‘Back 9’, encompassing nine of the Tour’s most historic tournaments and national opens, running from August to October. It gives members their final opportunities to secure their playing rights for 2025 and also advance to the season-ending ‘DP World Tour Play-Offs’.

BMW group owners will once again receive preferred parking benefits, while park & ride and shuttle services from local train stations will be available free of charge to all spectators.
