The Debrief: 2020 BMW PGA Championship

Here are the highlights from a thrilling week at Wentworth Golf Club.


Tyrrell Hatton's dream came true while Tommy Fleetwood and Graeme McDowell had other dreams on their mind at the 2020 BMW PGA Championship.

Here, we take a look at the highlights from a thrilling week at Wentworth Golf Club.

Home hero Hatton achieves boyhood dream

There is really only one place to start this week's debrief... Hatton's dream came true on Sunday as he won the tournament he had attended as a fan with his father when he was five years old. The Englishman, who grew up not far from Wentworth, also ticked off another career goal as the victory took him into the top ten on the Official World Golf Ranking. Hatton, who fought off Victor Perez in a tense final round battle to win by four shots courtesy of his Sunday 67, said: "It's a dream come true for me really. As a five-year-old walking around here I always wanted to be inside the ropes playing when I grew up. This is such a massive event and to get over the line and win here is such a special feeling. It was definitely a goal in my career to win here and I'm very thankful that I managed to get the job done today. It was a career goal to break inside the top ten in the World Rankings so to win here and achieve that in the same week is very special."

Picture perfect

Ahead of Sunday's final round, Hatton's mother reminded him of his visit to Wentworth by sending him a picture. He then recreated the photo with the trophy in his hand after putting on a short game masterclass to clinch the title.

Fleetwood (G)Mac take on #DreamsChallenge

Speaking of dreams... Fleetwood and McDowell were both at Wentworth and just couldn't pass up the opportunity to take on the #DreamsChallenge. How good is this?

Full commitment from Rosey

The hazard on the 15th at Wentworth has claimed a few victims over the years but we doubt any of them have ever put as much effort into getting out of it as Justin Rose did on Saturday. Here is the former World Number One hitting a driver from across a small trench...

Reed extends his lead

Race to Dubai leader Patrick Reed saved his best until last on Sunday, firing an eagle at his 72nd hole of the tournament to finish in a tie for third on 14 under par and rack up 394.0 points. That saw him stretch his advantage at the top of the leaderboard. He is hoping to still be at the summit by the time he gets to the season ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai in December. He said: "Hopefully by the time we get to Dubai we're in the driver's seat and everyone is having to chase me."
