The BMW PGA Championship has long been a prominent fixture on the DP World Tour, and the 2023 edition is taking its prestige to new heights.

In a historic move, all 12 members of Team Europe will compete here before heading to the Ryder Cup. This star-studded lineup features defending champion Shane Lowry, along with past winners Rory McIlroy, Billy Horschel, and Tyrrell Hatton.

McIlroy, currently ranked second in the world, will lead the field as the highest-ranked golfer. Joining him will be the reigning Masters Champion, Jon Rahm, holding the third spot, and FedEx Cup Champion Viktor Hovland, ranked fourth, rounding out the top 5 players in the Official World Golf Rankings who will be in action.

The tournament will once again grace the renowned Wentworth Golf Club, a course celebrated for its ability to level the playing field. It demands a comprehensive skill set, ensuring that only those who excel from tee to green have a shot at hoisting the trophy on Sunday. The total purse of the tournament is $9 million.
