Thomas Bjørn, professional golf player and friend of the BMW brand, embarked on a four-day charity walk to raise funds for UNICEF and the Golf Foundation as part of the European Tour’s #GolfforGood initiative.

Inspired by the fundraising exploits of Sir Tom Moore during the COVID-19 lockdown, Bjørn set off from the European Tour’s Headquarters at Wentworth Club in Surrey to the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, carrying the Ryder Cup for the entirety of the 130 mile walk. He was supported throughout the journey by a Ryder Cup branded BMW X5 which provided supplies through the endurance test.

To date Thomas’ fundraising efforts have raised £35,000 for UNICEF and the Golf Foundation, and further donations can be made here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Wentworth2Wales

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
