About the BMW PGA Championship

The tournament has been played annually on Wentworth's West Course since 1984, prior to that the event toured the UK with the likes of Royal St George's, Prince's and even St Andrews hosting the marquee date on the European Tour. The PGA European Tour is based at the club and that means the BMW PGA Championship is often regarded as the flagship event on the European Tour when played at the tour's home. Its winner is also given an exemption which allows them into that season's US Open and the next three Open Championships.

A look back at the 2018 BMW PGA Championship

With a weekend set for high temperatures and heavy rainfall, nothing dampened the spirits at Wentworth as Francesco Molinari won his fifth European Tour title at the 2018 BMW PGA Championship. The stellar field was littered with huge names including major champions and Ryder Cup legends including Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and last year’s winner Alex Noren.

McIlroy stormed into contention early and held his lead till the weekend where Molinari took a share of the lead before carding a magnificent final round 68 to clinch it from the 2014 winner by two shots. The BMW PGA Championship is the beginning of a busy schedule on the PGA and European Tour with the US Open just a few weeks away.
