⛳️ World-class golf on the West Course can only mean one thing. The BMW PGA Championship is back for 2022 with six days of unmissable action on the Virginia Water fairways. For the latest ticket information see below.
Taking place from 6-11 September the BMW PGA Championship Wentworth – the fourth Rolex Series event of the 2022 DP World Tour season – has once again attracted a host of international stars.
MAIN TOURNAMENT: Thursday to Sunday
Billy Horschel made a stunning closing birdie to win his first Rolex Series title at the 2021 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, becoming only the second American to win the tournament after the great Arnold Palmer in 1975. And Horschel (who recently celebrated a seventh PGA Tour title win in Ohio), along with 2020 winner Tyrrell Hatton and 2019 winner Danny Willett (all pictured below) are all confirmed to play in this year’s tournament.
Horschel, Hatton and Willett will face a stellar line-up of some of the world’s best players including world No.2 and 2021 US Open champion John Rahm, alongside the newly-crowned US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick (also pictured below). The 27-year-old Sheffield star is set to make a hero’s return to English soil after winning his maiden Major Championship title at The Country Club, Brookline in June.
“I’m really excited about returning to the BMW PGA Championship, especially now that I’m going home as a Major Champion,” said Fitzpatrick, whose maiden professional win came on English soil at the 2015 Betfred British Masters.
“It’s always such a great week at Wentworth Club and fans are incredible – really knowledgeable and supportive. I’ve always played well there but never quite challenged so I’m hoping with the form that I’m in, I can change that this year and maybe be there or thereabouts on Sunday afternoon.”
Breaking news: Rory Mcllroy is back! Returning to the tournament (which he won in 2014) for the first time since 2019, world No.3 Mcllroy is confirmed as joining fellow Major Champions Fitzpatrick, Rahm and Willett, alongside past champions Horschel and Hatton, as the playing field continues to strengthen for BMW PGA Championship Wentworth
The Round 1 action gets underway at approximately 6.40am on Thursday morning with the final group out at 2.45pm. For individual player and group tee times see the links below.
Tuesday is practice day followed by an eagerly awaited Pro-Am on Wednesday 7 September. Already confirmed for this year is British F1 superstar Lando Norris, along with A-list celebrity Niall Horan of One Direction fame, Hollywood actor Tom Felton and TV personality Vernon Kay. Last year saw a host of actors, singers, sports stars and TV personalities – including Helen Skelton, Eddie Hearn, Ebony Rainford Brent, Chris Hughes, Sam Quek, Ronan Keating, Anton du Beke, Denise Lewis and Sir AP McCoy – wow the pro-am crowds. The morning groups start from 8am (tbc) and afternoon groups from 1.15pm (tbc) – a full list of individual players and group tee times will appear here once published.
Live music will once again return to the BMW PGA Championship across the week, with rock band Razorlight headlining on the Slingsby Showstage on Sunday night once the final putt has dropped. On Saturday night all eyes will be on multi-platinum selling DJ Jax Jones who will take to the Slingsby Showstage at the close of play.
