BPC Day 4

BMW tournament dates for 2019.

The dates for next year’s major BMW tournaments have been confirmed.

The BMW Championship (PGA TOUR) will be brought forward to August in 2019, while the BMW PGA Championship (European Tour) moves back to September. The BMW International Open (European Tour) and the World Final of the BMW Golf Cup International remain in June and March.

The revised PGA TOUR calendar comes into force for the 2018/19 season. The biggest changes see the PGA Championship brought forward to May and the FedExCup Playoffs in August. As such, the BMW Championship will be played from 13th to 18th August next year. The venue for the penultimate Playoff tournament is "Course Three" at Medinah Country Club (Chicago) – the same course that provided the backdrop to the 2012 Ryder Cup and the "Miracle of Medinah".

The prestigious BMW PGA Championship is moving from its established date in May, in order to avoid a clash with the PGA Championship. The Wentworth Club, on the outskirts of London, will host "The Players’ Flagship" from 17th to 22nd September in 2019.

In contrast, there is no change for the BMW International Open – at least, not as far as the date is concerned. Golfclub München Eichenried will welcome the stars of the European Tour to the 31st staging of the iconic German tournament from 18th to 23rd June. Over the coming years, the BMW International will be played exclusively at the golf club to the north of Munich – on completely new greens, which will be ready for the 2019 tournament.

As has become tradition, the BMW Golfsport year will kick off with the World Final of the BMW Golf Cup International. The national winners of the world’s largest international tournament series for amateurs will be invited to Cabo San Lucas, a resort on the southern tip of the Mexican Baja California peninsula, from 18th to 23rd March. The tournament will be played at "Cabo del Sol", while the world finalists and their guests will stay next to the course at the "Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar".
