BMW PGA Championship

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Nobody has talked about the biggest championship in Europe going on this weekend, but I have to butt in here.

 

Marc Warren may have just hit the shot of the year. He had just birdied the first three holes of the back nine to take the lead over Lee Westwood, Matteo Manassero, and Simon Khan, but hit his drive at Wentworth's 13th hole into a fairway bunker. His second shot caught the lip of the bunker, and still had a long way to the green. Momentum broken, right? Wrong; he holes out from the fairway for a most improbable fourth birdie in a row.

 

Still a lot of golf to be played in the UK, and Warren has several great players stalking him.

WOW. That is awesome, I hope I can find it on a highlight reel somewhere.

Matteo Manassero turned 20 only a month ago. It took four extra holes, but now he's won the biggest tournament on the European Tour - the youngest-ever BMW PGA Champion. He's the first champion in his 20s in 19 years.

What a player Manassero is. Awesome swing awesome short game and he's Italian.. Glad I thought he could be something special when he just made the tour. Can't wait to watch him at Merion

Definitely a swing worth emulating. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the final holes and playoff.

Well a pretty good year as a fan for me so far, both my favourite players now have significant wins under their belts this season (Scott being the other).  I think we will see more from Manassero as he develops and can see him winning a major in his carear.

Went on Saturday but skipped Sunday as I have to go back to Frankfurt for work. 

 

There weren't any big names left on Saturday apart from Lee Westwood and Ernie Els. Followed the last 3 groups for 18 holes and overall I find Wentworth greens a really small target and weren't easy.

 

I took some videos of Ernie Els at the driving range and will post it up later.

 

The tournament has a nice carnival feel to it and the organisers have done really well with the tournament village. Food and drinks stalls are set up at least in 12 out of the 18 holes. My mate and I are thinking about going back again next year.

Definitely enjoyed the final round... I had no intentions of watching it, but was up early here in Texas and it was on... Could not peel my eyes away from the screen...

 

That young guy has game, and he could be someone to watch in the next few years over here...
