  • With only the third albatross in the history of the BMW PGA Championship, Ross Fisher won a BMW i8 Roadster* worth 150,483 euros.
  • In the third round, the Englishman found the hole from a distance of 199 metres on the 18th hole.

 

London. The 15th edition of the BMW PGA Championship doesn’t end until tomorrow, but the shot of the tournament is already clear. With a 4 iron, Ross Fisher circled his ball on the 478-metre 18th hole (par 5) into the hole with his second shot. The 38-year-old’s reward for the albatross rarely seen in golf is the hybrid sports car BMW i8 Roadster Rosso Corsa*.

 

“I was just trying to hit it just a little bit right of the pin, and actually tugged it a little bit left. I wasn’t sure whether it was going to the flag and sort of looked away. The crowd’s reaction told the rest of the story, the massive roars and cheers. To win the BMW i8 is still a bit shocking. Just surreal,” said Fisher, after receiving the keys to his new dream car. “This is our Flagship Event, our most prestigious tournament to play in all year round, so it’s pretty cool.”

 

In the history of the BMW PGA Championship, only Miguel Ángel Jiménez (2009) and Tommy Fleetwood (2012) have previously achieved an albatross, both of them on the fourth hole. However, no player has ever achieved this feat on the last hole before.

 

But Fisher is not the first professional to leave the Wentworth Club as the proud owner of a new vehicle. James Morrison (ENG, 2016, BMW i8 Protonic Red Edition, Scott Jamieson (SCO, 2016, BMW M2 Coupé), Chris Wood (ENG, 2015, BMW i8) and Andrew “Beef” Johnston (ENG, 2015, BMW M4 Coupé) have all won the BMW Hole-in-One Award.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
