Wentworth/Munich. This week, the European Tour stages its flagship event at its headquarters. A world-class field will tee off at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club. After the cancellation of The Open Championship, the Rolex Series event, which boasts a prize purse of seven million dollars, is the biggest golf tournament of the year in Europe. As with all the tournaments on the European Tour since the re-start in June, the COVID-19 pandemic means that no spectators are permitted at Wentworth Club, for safety reasons. BMW is providing each of the 120 players with a car for the tournament week. In providing this service, the only one of its type to date on the European Tour, BMW is supporting the health and safety concept.

Last year, Danny Willett produced an final round of 67 to keep Jon Rahm at bay, having started the Sunday level with the Spaniard. Willet’s final score of 20 under par was the second lowest in tournament history, making the Englishman a worthy winner. “I cannot wait to defend my BMW PGA Championship title,” says the 2016 Masters champion. “Obviously, it will be a little different this year without fans but I know Wentworth will be in superb condition and hopefully we can put on a good show for the fans watching on television.”

The stage is set for another memorable tournament. As well as Willett, those teeing off on the West Course include fellow major winners Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer and Shane Lowry, as well as top players Tommy Fleetwood, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Matt Fitzpatrick, Tyrrell Hatton and Bernd Wiesberger. World number nine and 2018 Masters champion Patrick Reed, who leads the Race to Dubai on the European Tour, will also set his sights on the prestigious title at Wentworth Club.

The motto for the 2020 BMW PGA Championship is “Giving Back”, and the tournament is supporting various social projects. This also goes for the traditional BMW Hole-in-One Award, for which the pros will not receive a car this year. Instead, BMW will donate £ 63.000 to the Alzheimer’s Society for the first ace on the 14th hole. This year’s Hole-in-One car would have been the all-new BMW 530e Touring.

In order to implement the distancing and hygiene regulations, the BMW PGA Championship will feature a first on the European Tour. For the first time, every player will receive his own car for the duration of the tournament week. BMW is providing 120 BMW X3 and BMW X5 vehicles for this service.

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.
