Rory McIlroy has confirmed that he will be teeing it up at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in September.
After opening 2023 with a win in Dubai, the Northern Irishman, who is currently ranked no.2 in the world, is aiming to further enhance his impressive BMW PGA Championship record, with a victory in 2014 and four further top tens – including two runner-up finishes – to his name.
McIlroy was in scintillating form when he made his last appearance at Wentworth last September, having sealed his third FedExCup title after a 2021/22 PGA TOUR season which included three victories and seven further top tens.
And following a thrilling final day duel with Ryder Cup teammate and eventual champion Shane Lowry around the famous Surrey venue, he went on to top the DP World Tour’s Race to Dubai rankings for the fourth time, becoming European no.1, world no.1 and FedExCup Champion at the same point for the first time in his career.
McIlroy started the new campaign in the same vein, winning his first events of the 2023 season on both sides of the Atlantic, with the prospect of a seventh Ryder Cup appearance approaching in September.
“I always love playing at the BMW PGA Championship, and I’ve had some great results and performances round the West Course in the past,” said the 15-time DP World Tour winner. “I started 2023 with a win in Dubai, and Wentworth is a place where I would like to add another title.”
