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 2017 BMW PGA Championship

The 2017 BMW PGA Championship enjoyed 4 days of glorious sunshine and fantastic golf by some of the biggest names in the game. The field was stellar with major champions, Ryder Cup captains and 9 players from the 2016 Ryder Cup team including Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson and Martin Kaymer all playing. The fun started on Wednesday at the Celebrity Pro-Am where a lucky YGT client got the chance to caddy for YGT ambassador and former world no. 1 Lee Westwood. To top the day off, Lee even had a hole in one on the 5th hole, racking up his career total to 16.

All four days of the tournament saw some excellent golf but it was on Sunday when one golfer from Sweden, Alex Noren stood out from the rest, shooting an incredible score of 10 under par which also was a new course record. With this win, Alex has shot up the Race to Dubai table and is now ranked no. 13th in official world golf rankings.
