Jon Rahm CONFIRMED to play in BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth

Reigning Masters champion Jon Rahm will return to the BMW PGA Championship from September 12-17, and tickets to see the Spanish star at Wentworth Club are now on sale. 

The double major winner is aiming to add to his impressive record at the DP World Tour's fourth Rolex Series event of the season, with runner-up finishes in his two previous BMW PGA Championship appearances in 2019 and 2022.

Rahm produced the round of the week last season with a remarkable closing 62 that included two eagles and seven birdies, to move from six shots back into a tie for second alongside Rory McIlroy, and one shot behind eventual winner Shane Lowry.


The World Number Two rounded out his 2022 DP World Tour season with two memorable victories, sealing an emotional win on home soil to emulate his hero Seve Ballesteros with a third acciona Open de España presented by Madrid title, before securing a third win at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship and a fifth Rolex Series title.

The 28-year-old carried that scintillating form into 2023, winning three PGA TOUR titles in five starts before triumphing at Augusta National in April to add a second Major title to his collection, after becoming the first Spaniard to win the U.S. Open in 2021.

Rahm said: “I’ve come close to the BMW PGA Championship title a couple of times now, so I’m looking forward to getting back to Wentworth Club this season and aiming to go one better.

“Any time you have the chance to play a historic event, over a great course and in front of supportive fans, is enjoyable, and I’m looking forward to returning in September and going for another Rolex Series win.”

Rahm will join defending champion Lowry and fellow European Ryder Cup star McIlroy in the BMW PGA Championship field, where the world class action inside the ropes will be complemented by live entertainment on the Showstage from headline acts including Jax Jones and the Wombats, and an unrivalled atmosphere in the vibrant Spectator Village.

The BMW PGA Championship Festival of Golf takes place less than an hour from central London and an exciting week will begin with G4D Tour @ BMW PGA Championship, which will see some of the best golfers with disabilities battle it out for the penultimate G4D Tour title of the season at the prestigious venue.

That is followed by the star-studded Wednesday Celebrity Pro-Am which will bring together global celebrities - including Hollywood A-lister Tom Holland, football superstar Gareth Bale and England cricketers James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes - with some of golf’s most famous players in a fun-filled curtain raiser to the main event, the BMW PGA Championship, which tees off on Thursday September 14.

BMW group owners will once again receive preferred parking benefits, while park & ride and shuttle services from local train stations will be available free of charge to all spectators.
