FIVE TOP-CLASS TOURNAMENTS.
In May and June 2020, the BMW Indoor Invitational powered by TrackMan saw 62 European Tour players from 17 countries going head to head from the safety of their home in a virtual tournament series, using the latest simulator technology.
The innovative series consisted of five one-round (18 hole) stroke play tournaments, played virtually on some of the most iconic golf courses on the European Tour – including Golfclub München Eichenried, home of the BMW International Open, and Wentworth Club, home of the BMW PGA Championship.
Each week, the tournament winner received 10,000 US dollars to donate to a charity or relief fund of his choice, which has been helping communities impacted by the pandemic.
Jörn Plinke, Head of BMW Golfsport Marketing” BMW enjoys long-term partnerships with TrackMan and the European Tour and shares the aspiration to also drive golf further with a digital format. ”
