Superlatives are often overused, but when it comes to the Ryder Cup, they could not be more appropriate. The players wax lyrical as soon as they start talking about the captivating team competition. The fans stir up a sensational atmosphere, which anyone who has ever experienced will never forget. Official Ryder Cup Partner BMW gave twelve fans precisely this opportunity.
Over the course of 2018, BMW went in search of twelve team members, whose passion for this legendary competition knows no bounds, and invited them to Paris in September 2018. Places on the team could be won through online challenges on the BMW Golfsport Facebook and Instagram channels, as well as at selected BMW tournaments on the European Tour.
