BMW PGA Championship 2022: what are we saying?

A statement from the DP World Tour read: “The decision to restart on Saturday has been made in accordance with official national mourning guidelines and in consultation with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

“The Wentworth event will give players, caddies, staff, volunteers and spectators the opportunity to come together throughout the weekend, not only to express their condolences, but also to celebrate Her Majesty’s extraordinary life.

“We join other sports in doing this, including the Men’s Test match between England and South Africa at The Oval and the Women’s IT20 match between England and India in County Durham, the Premiership Rugby Union, the Rugby League and the Great North Run in the North East of England.

“The Rolex Series event will now be contested over 54 holes with the intention of finishing on Sunday as scheduled. It is not possible to play the full 72 holes and finish on Monday as we cannot guarantee staff, facilities or site security on Monday due to ongoing plans for the state funeral.

“Throughout the weekend at Wentworth, black ribbons will be made available to people and the flags will continue to fly at half mast.

“In addition, there will be a two-minute silence at 9.50am on Saturday morning at the site to commemorate the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, with King Charles III’s proclamation being broadcast on Championship Village television screens from 10 a.m. .

BMW PGA Championship 2022: the route

Wentworth’s West Course has hosted the BMW PGA Championship since 1984.

The course was established in 1922 and was designed by Harry Colt before going through development by Ernie Els in the late 2000s.

He will play at a par 72 and have a maximum length of 7,267 yards.

The first hole boasts one of the best tee shots in British golf while the short par 5 18th still offers drama throughout.

With four par-5s and four par-3s, Wentworth still offers plenty of scoring opportunities, especially on the back nine.
