There is confirmation from Rory McIlroy that he will be taking part in the BMW PGA Championship to take place in May at Wentworth. If you are a close follower of this PGA player, then you would know that this is the course that has given him lots of frustration in the past.
McIlroy will be making his first appearance in the European circuit in 2018 at the Wentworth PGA Championship. McIlroy had won the event in 2014 and was not able to take part in the event last year due to a rib joint injury. In fact, the injury troubled him all through the last season.
He will be competing with the likes of Tommy Fleetwood, the number one European player in the refurbished West course. This will be the first of the eight Rolex series tournaments.
McIlroy has had a decent 2018 so far. The world’s number 7 player finished in the top three during his outings in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. After this, he took part in the Arnold Palmer Invitational PGA tour campaign and showed his class there.
McIlroy said that he is happy that he will be going to Wentworth in May. He didn’t play there for two years. But, with the little that he has seen and heard about the renewed course, he feels that it is now a better golf course.
He admitted that the course sometimes gets tricky. He is now dying to get on the course and start playing golf. McIlroy hopes that the weather will be fine during the PGA championship as this will bring in a lot of crowd.
He says that he has a weird feeling about Wentworth as he did not do much on the course except to win the event in 2014. He is looking forward to going there and cracks the course puzzle again.
