The BMW PGA Championship, which is the first tournament in the European Tour’s new Rolex Series, is renowned as one of the leading social and sporting events on the calendar. In 2017, another world-class field arrived at the Wentworth Club in Surrey to compete for prize money of seven million US dollars. BMW has been both partner and title sponsor of the event since 2005.


The beaming winner Alex Noren was joined at the Wentworth Club by Rory McIlroy, second in the world rankings, Open champion Henrik Stenson, Olympic champion Justin Rose, Majors winners Martin Kaymer and Danny Willett, and Lee Westwood.

THE 2017 WINNER.

In the end victory went to Sweden’s Alex Noren, who could not be caught after he stormed to the front of the field with a course record-equalling score of 62 for an 11-under-par total of 277 that none could match. His bogey-free round included eight birdies and a spectacular eagle three at the 18th hole and brought him victory by two strokes over Francesco Molinari, of Italy, and a first prize of €1.04 million.

It is a fantastic feeling to have won this great championship. There was a lot of pressure out there because it’s a huge event. In my mind, this tournament compares a lot with a major.
