Rory McIlroy to return to BMW PGA Championship

Rory McIlroy will return to the BMW PGA Championship for the first time since 2019 when the Northern Irishman tees it up in search of a second career victory at Wentworth Club and a maiden Rolex Series title.

The four-time Major winner has an enviable record at the BMW PGA Championship, boasting one win in 2014, a runner-up finish in 2018 and a top five finish way back in 2009, and fans can buy tickets to see his return to Wentworth here.

McIlroy has enjoyed a strong run of form in 2022 and will arrive at the prestigious Surrey venue having added a 21st PGA TOUR title to his CV at the RBC Canadian Open last month, while he also finished runner-up at April’s Masters Tournament and third at the Open Championship.

His Rolex Series record thus far this year also makes for impressive reading as he finished third at the Dubai Desert Classic after claiming a share of 12th at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

“I look forward to competing again at the BMW PGA Championship,” said McIlroy. “It’s an event I always love playing – the West Course has been good to me in the past, and the fans are incredibly supportive.

“I’ve had a consistent year so far and having a chance to win again at the iconic Wentworth would help my season long campaign.”

McIlroy joins his fellow Major winners, reigning U.S. Open Champion Matt Fitzpatrick, 2021 U.S. Open Champion Jon Rahm and 2016 Masters winner Danny Willett, in the field, as well as defending BMW PGA Champion Billy Horschel and the 2020 winner Tyrrell Hatton.
