+++ Evans Scholars Foundation awards college scholarships to caddies +++ Since 2007, the BMW Championship has allowed more than 3,330 young people to study +++ Viktor Hovland (NOR) earns an extra scholarship with an ace on the final round of 2022 +++


Munich/Glenview.
The 2022 BMW Championship at Wilmington Country Club in Wilmington, Delaware, raised more than $4.5 million for caddie scholarships, the Western Golf Association (WGA) announced today. On the strength of support from BMW, Wilmington Country Club, the local corporate community and Delaware Valley Golf fans, the BMW Championship secured its second-largest contribution to the Evans Scholars Foundation in 2022. The BMW Championship has now contributed more than $44.5 million to the Evans Scholars Foundation since 2007, helping award full tuition and housing college scholarships to more than 3,300 caddies during that time.

“The 2022 BMW Championship at Wilmington Country Club was an outstanding golf tournament in every regard, with the icing on the cake being this magnificent contribution towards the Evans Scholars Foundation,” said Ilka Horstmeier, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Human Resources and Real Estate. “While the BMW Championship is a great way to showcase our brand and engage customers, it is just as important to us that the BMW Group is able to help the Evans Scholars Foundation improve the lives of so many young people.”

This year, 120,000 golf fans visited the BMW Championship and witnessed Patrick Cantlay making tournament history: the American became the first player to successfully defend his title. This was not the only remarkable performance on the final Sunday. Viktor Hovland hit an ace on the second hole. This was the first hole-in-one of the tournament, for which BMW traditionally donates an additional full, four-year tuition and housing scholarship worth $125,000, on behalf of the accurate player. This is the sixth time in the history of the BMW Championship that this has happened.

“We’re thrilled to contribute all proceeds from the 2022 BMW Championship to the Evans Scholars Foundation, where they will make a real difference for youth caddies from Delaware and across the country,” said Vince Pellegrino, WGA Senior Vice President of Tournaments. “The excitement of the Delaware Valley golf fans, as well as the steadfast support of our partners at BMW, Wilmington Country Club and the PGA TOUR, made the 2022 BMW Championship a truly unforgettable tournament.”

Next year, the BMW Championship will take place from 15th to 20th August at Olympia Fields Country Club (Chicago, Illinois). For individual tickets and corporate hospitality options, visit: www.bmwchampionship.com

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
