BMW PGA Championship: Top Players Heading to Surrey

Now that the frenzy over the royal wedding has died down, some of the exciting action from the European Tour concerns its flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship at Surrey. Rory McIlroy is the favourite to win although he will face stiff competition from Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey. Alex Noren will be defending his title. Top players in contention include Ian Poulter, Shane Lowry, Alexander Levy and Francesco Molinari

The player who comes out on top after four days of battle starting May 24 will get the lion’s share of the €5,869,535 purse. The scene of action is the  West course at Wentworth Club, located at the heart of the exclusive Wentworth Estate, this temple of British golf is now entirely member-only, since its acquisition in 2016 by a Chinese billionaire.

Burma Road" as the revered West course is known, has a tournament pedigree like few other inland courses in Britain. A Ryder Cup and a Canada Cup (World Cup of Golf) have been played here, as well as more World Match Play and PGA Championships than most can remember.

 layout throws-up long carries from the tees over heather, while occasional water hazards will need to be avoided, the most testing of which fronts the final green. The bunkering here is impressive, especially around the greens, and not least after Ernie Els' recent make-over. As you will gather from the villas and mansions that discreetly line parts of the course, few things in the Wentworth Estate come cheap ... a place fit for a King ... or nowadays a billionaire Chinese businessman.
