He is joined by Belgian Ryder Cup stars Nicolas Colsaerts – who secured his third European Tour title at the 2019 Open de France - and four-time winner Thomas Pieters.
Scotland’s Connor Syme will be aiming for a hattrick of BMW Indoor Invitational powered by TrackMan wins, after following up his victory at Royal Portrush in week two with a place in a five-way tie for first place over Real Club Valderrama last Saturday.
Four men have a chance of joining Syme as multiple winners on the series - England’s Matthew Jordan and Damien Perrier of France, who were also in the tie at the top in Spain last week, Joost Luiten, the first winner around the Old Course at St Andrews, and his fellow Dutchman Wil Besseling, who took the glory at Golf Club Munchen Eichenried in week three.
Meanwhile, Wentworth Club member Steven Brown will be hoping to make experience count as he takes on his home course virtually.
The final week of BMW Indoor Invitational powered by TrackMan action takes place over the West Course at the world-famous Wentworth Club, home of the prestigious BMW PGA Championship. The venue also hosted global events such as the World Match Play Championship - which was played at the Surrey venue from 1964-2007 – and The Ryder Cup in 1953.
The winner will receive $10,000 to benefit a Coronavirus charity or relief fund of his choice.
