Wentworth Golf Club – BMW PGA Championship News and Hospitality Updates
In 2019 Wentworth Golf Club plays host to the 56th edition of the BMW PGA Championship on its West Course, which underwent extensive redevelopment ahead of the 2017 tournament. The prestigious tournament is part of the Rolex Series and boasts a prize fund of $7,000,000.
With both the Moët Pavilion and Green on 18 hospitality facilities available to book now there is no excuse to miss world-class golf in world-class surroundings.
In 2018 the BMW PGA Championship exceeded itself both on and off the golf course. The showstage at the heart of the Championship Village saw Drum and Bass four piece Rudimental play out Saturday evening while Scotland’s very own Simple Minds brought the week to a fitting close on Sunday.
The BMW PGA is not just a golf tournament but also a social event that draws in the big-names from sport and entertainment.
Last year saw the likes of Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola, Ex-England international footballers Paul Scholes and Teddy Sherringham, former F1 world champion Damon Hill, Hollywood star Damian Lewis and Niall Horan of One Direction in attendance.
Looking back at the golf however, 2018 saw some excellent play from the world’s best golfers.
Rory McIlroy started the week strongly with scores of 67 and 65 which saw him top of the leaderboard at the halfway point. However, the Ulsterman was unable to kick on from this into the Championship rounds and ended the weekend picking up just three shots in the last two rounds.
Consistency proved to be the key for 2018, and with rounds of 70, 67, 66 and 68 shots making a score of -17, Italian Francesco Molinari clinched victory from McIlroy by two shots.
2017’s winner Alex Norén finished tied third with Dane Lucas Bjerregaard on -14.
We have no doubt that the 2019 BMW PGA Championship will live up to its reputation as a world-class golf event with world-class hospitality. Make sure you stay tuned for the latest BMW PGA Championship news, views and updates.
