As the penultimate tournament on the PGA TOUR calendar, the BMW Championship has long been a special event for the players and features one of the world’s best fields. Only the top 70 in the FedExCup overall rankings qualify for the playoff event. Partner BMW has been lending its name to the tournament since 2007. In 2022, the BMW Championship – and a PGA TOUR tournament – took place in the US state of Delaware for the first time. A spectacular week of golf at the Wilmington Country Club ended with history being made: Patrick Cantlay became the first player to successfully defend a title at a playoff tournament. In 2023, the BMW Championship will return to the Olympia Fields Country Club (Chicago, 18th to 25th August).

BMW Championship 2022 Winner

BMW CHAMPION 2022.

Patrick Cantlay (USA, -14) laid the foundations for his eighth win on the PGA TOUR with a third-round score of 65 to put himself in the lead going into the final day. A solid overall performance and a sensational finish at the final two holes with some superb approach shots and putts then proved to be enough for the 2021 Ryder Cup winner on Sunday.
 

The leading group was involved in a close battle until deep into the final round. A birdie at the 17th hole represented the decisive advantage for Cantlay, who went on to write PGA TOUR history: this was the very first time in the 15-year history of the playoffs that a player had won FedExCup tournament two years in a row.
 

Second place went to Scott Stallings (USA, -13). Placed 106th in the world rankings, he was just one shot away from a sensational result. World no. 1 Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele (both USA, -11) shared third place ahead of Adam Scott (AUS), Corey Conners (CAN) and K.H. Lee (KOR, all -10).

WILMINGTON COUNTRY CLUB.

The 2022 BMW Championship is not just the first playoff tournament in history to take place in Delaware. This is the very time that a PGA TOUR event has been hosted in the second-smallest federal state. The Wilmington Country Club is in northern Delaware, around 90 kilometres to the north of the capital city, Dover, and around 50 kilometres west of downtown Philadelphia.

 

Wilmington Country Club was established in 1901. The club relocated in the 1950s, bringing in renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. to design the South Course, which opened in 1959. Playing over 7,500 yards from the championship tees, the South Course has been recognized as one of the United States’ best golf courses by Golf Digest.

While this will be Wilmington Country Club’s first professional event, the club has long been a proving ground for the world’s best amateur players. After hosting the 1913 U.S. Women’s Amateur on what is now known as the “Old Course,” Wilmington has hosted five other USGA events, including the 1965 and 1978 U.S. Junior Amateur, the 1971 U.S. Amateur, the 1978 U.S. Girls’ Junior and the 2003 U.S. Mid-Amateur. The club also hosted the 2013 Palmer Cup competition between Europe and a United States team that featured 2019 BMW Championship winner Justin Thomas, Daniel Berger and Patrick Rodgers.

Premium event.

More than 110,000 golf fans visited the first appearance of the BMW Championship at the Wilmington Country Club. An outstanding field, a challenging golf course, spectacular action and an exciting tournament set-up made the week into an unforgettable event that you can enjoy once more here: click through the images and watch the video with the highlights of the BMW Championship 2022.

HOLE-IN-ONE AWARDS 2022.

The pros had the chance to win the new BMW i7 by hitting an ace on the 15th hole (par 3).  There is no other model that represents the innovation of BMW better than the BMW i7. As the first full luxury limousine with 100% electric drive in the world, it brings innovative driving pleasure to the streets with a range of more than 600 kilometres.
 

No player managed to record a hole-in-one at the 15th, but Norway’s Viktor Hovland aced the 2nd hole on the final day – making a lasting difference to the life of one young person. BMW traditionally also donates a four-year scholarship to the Evans Scholars Foundation for the first hole-in-one of the tournament.  This is the sixth time in the history of the BMW Championship that this has happened.

CHARITY IMPACT.

The Evans Scholars Foundation

All proceeds from the BMW Championship go to the Evans Scholars Foundation (ESF), which awards full college scholarships to hard-working, young caddies. Since the tournament’s inception in 2007, the BMW Championship has raised over $40 million for the Evans Scholars Foundation and helped send 3,300 caddies to college.
 

The ESF was founded in 1930 by the Western Golf Association and legendary amateur golfer Charles "Chick" Evans Jr. The ESF will be helping the record-breaking number of 1,100 caddies to finance their studies in the current academic year. There are currently around 11,500 former Evans Scholars in the USA. 40% of all Evans Scholars belong the first generations in their families to have been able to attend a college.
