PGA CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY

1955 - Present
  • PGA Championship

First played in 1955, and part of the European Tour International Schedule since the Tour’s inception in 1972, the BMW PGA Championship boasts a rich and varied history. Widely regarded as one of the most prestigious tournaments in golf, the BMW PGA Championship has been held on the iconic West Course at Wentworth Club every year since 1984, with a rollcall of champions which include some of the game’s leading lights. Sir Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, José Maria Olazábal, Colin Montgomerie and Rory McIlroy have all conquered the West Course, with Montgomerie creating history in 2000 when the Scot became the first player to win the tournament three years in succession.
