Poulter and Hatton Lead Praise for Wentworth Changes

Poulter and Hatton Lead Praise for Wentworth Changes

The greens on the eighth, 11th, 14th and 16th were completely rebuilt and another five - the third, fourth, fifth, 12th and 15th - were partially rebuilt, while a sub-air system as used at Augusta National was installed under all 18 greens.

Rory McIlroy will sit out the European Tour flagship event next week to make sure a recurring rib injury heals. "Some of the bunkers that were very penal before are now more playable".

It begins at the home of the PGA at Wentworth and concludes at the World Tour Championship in Dubai at the end of the season. "The residents and local businesses in the area have demonstrated a passion for PGA TOUR golf, and I know they will be engaged with this event from the start as we grow an exciting new chapter in the city's golf annals". The Tour went over its data and agreed, and in the process realized Poulter also met the criteria to retain his Tour card. I think the changes last time, on a number of holes, were too severe.

"That strategy of fairways and greens is going to pay off again I think".

"I am hoping to win this week and then I am in", Poulter told reporters at Wentworth.

"To take care of my playing rights over there, to take care of moving the world ranking position and to be able to play a string of events in Europe this summer was something I really wanted to do". A lot of top-class players did the same thing, and Sawgrass is the kind of course that tempts you into those sorts of scores and mistakes.

The European Tour reported their Chief Executive Keith Pelley said "There is no question that Rory will be missed at the BMW PGA Championship but his healthy is the most iprtant thing and we wish him a speedy recovery". You'll have to get up early for this one here in the US, but any time Rory McIlroy's name is attached to a tournament, you know it has a chance to be great.

The BMW PGA Championship, hosted by Wentworth, will see the finest players that the European Tour has to offer going toe-to-toe. "I've been spoilt through years of having flawless putting surfaces wherever we go and play golf". "This is a vibrant city that has a strong passion and history with the game of golf, and we look forward to working with the community and local businesses to grow this tournament on and off the course".
