There’s something truly special about playing on home soil, and feeling the support of the crowds around the West Course makes this such a great week. I’ve come close a couple of times in the past and the BMW PGA Championship is a title that I would love to win.Justin Rose
Returning to the verdant Wentworth landscape for the third consecutive year, the charismatic Australian, Adam Scott, will resume his quest. A Major champion courtesy of his 2013 Masters triumph, Scott revels in the challenge posed by the Surrey venue.
Adam Scott said off the upcoming championship. “I’ve enjoyed playing at Wentworth over the years and I’ve been really pleased to be able to add the BMW PGA Championship to my schedule for the past few seasons.
It’s always a pleasure to play the Rolex Series events, and particularly with such a great atmosphere around this tournament”.
The upcoming tournament marks a maiden appearance for the prodigious 21-year-old Tom Kim at the BMW PGA Championship.
Flaunting his prowess with a remarkable third-place finish in Scotland last year, followed by a top-six finish in the same event this year, Kim’s star is undoubtedly in ascension.
Kim who has won in the past two PGA TOUR seasons and is competing in the final FedExCup event at East Lake this week, said: “It’s been a great season for me, and I’m looking forward to heading over to Europe following the FedExCup.
I’ve enjoyed the events I’ve played on the DP World Tour so far. The BMW PGA Championship has so much history, and I’m proud to have the opportunity to compete at Wentworth next month.”
