+++ Premium car manufacturer announces title partnership with the BMW Australian PGA Championship +++ First edition with BMW to be held at the Royal Queensland Golf Club from 21st to 24th November 2024 +++ First BMW event in the Southern Hemisphere and third on the DP World Tour calendar +++


Munich/Brisbane. 
BMW will become the title partner of the Australian PGA Championship, one of Australian golf’s two major golf events, as of the coming DP World Tour season. This sees the premium car manufacturer extend its commitment to excellent pro events on an additional continent. The BMW Australian PGA Championship is the third BMW tournament on the DP World Tour, alongside the 35th BMW International Open taking place in Munich this week and the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth near London. BMW is the title partner of the PGA TOUR’s playoff tournament – the BMW Championship – in the USA, and of the BMW Ladies Championship on the LPGA Tour in South Korea.

The BMW Australian PGA Championship is locked in for Royal Queensland Golf Club (Brisbane) from 21st to 24th November this year, the host venue of the 2032 Olympic Games golf competition. The tournament is one of the premier events on the Australian sporting calendar and will be the opening tournament of the 2024/25 DP World Tour season. Min Woo Lee of Australia has already confirmed he will return to defend his title.

“BMW has had a longstanding involvement in golf around the world for over 40 years, and we are excited to extend our partnership with the Australian PGA for such a prestigious Australian tournament. From the US via Europe to Asia and now Australasia, you will find BMW wherever golf is played and enjoyed through all major markets worldwide,” said Wolfgang Buechel, CEO BMW Australia. “This is BMW’s first major golf naming rights partnership in the Southern Hemisphere and builds on our existing relationship as the official automotive partner of the PGA, Golf Australia and the WPGA.”

Thanks to the co-sanctioning agreement between the Challenger PGA Tour of Australasia and DP World Tour, this year’s BMW Australian PGA Championship will again feature a world-class field, pitting the best of Australia’s professionals against an international contingent of contenders.

“We are delighted to welcome BMW as the naming rights partner for the Australian PGA Championship. They have had a wonderful influence on Australian golf and our PGA Championship for many years and this naming rights partnership takes their commitment to the next level,” said Gavin Kirkman, PGA of Australia CEO. “BMW's commitment to excellence and innovation perfectly aligns with our values, and we are confident that this partnership will contribute to the continued success and growth of the championship.”

As well as being naming rights partner of the BMW Australian PGA Championship, BMW is committed to supporting the future of Australian professional golf. The company currently has partnerships with LPGA Tour star Grace Kim and DP World Tour player Elvis Smylie.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. 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 have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information are available at www.bmw.de/wltp and at www.dat.de/co2/.
