Defending champion Molinari heads a star-studded field for PGA Championships at Wentworth

One of the best fields in the history of the BMW PGA Championships will tee off at the Wentworth Club this week (September 19-22).

Big crowds are expected to watch the Rolex Series event, which is the first counting tournament in the race to qualify for the 2020 European Ryder Cup team.

Defending Champion Francesco Molinari headlines the star-studded line-up alongside four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy, home favourites Paul Casey, Tommy Fleetwood and Justin Rose, BMW PGA Championship debutant Jon Rahm of Spain and reigning Open Champion Shane Lowry.

This year’s change of date, from the traditional May slot to mid-September, means that American stars Tony Finau, Billy Horschel, Andrew Putman and Patrick Reed have added the event to their 2019 schedules and will all make their BMW PGA Championship debuts from September 19-22.

Ten of the 12 European heroes from last year’s Ryder Cup triumph at Le Golf National will also converge on Wentworth with Paul Casey, Tyrrell Hatton, Fleetwood, McIlroy, Molinari, Alex Noren, Ian Poulter, Rahm, Rose and Henrik Stenson all set to play.

United are unbeaten away from home, with four wins and a draw to their name, but on home soil they've been turned over three times, with the side losing 1-0 to Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.

The BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am, meanwhile, will once again attract a number of international superstars from the worlds of sport and entertainment.

England’s World Cup-winning cricket heroes Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Joe Root headline a list of household names from the world of sport, along with their Ashes team-mates Stuart Broad and James Anderson.

Fans can also buy tickets to see a top class line-up of entertainment on the Slingsby Show Stage in the BMW Championship village, with Rudimental headlining on Saturday night (September 21) and Anne-Marie bringing the curtain down on Sunday September 22.
