BMW PGA Championship has ‘major feel’ to it on European Tour

Billy Horschel believes the BMW PGA Championship has a feel to it and thinks victory will cement his position as a player.
Horschel is one of a number of PGA Tour players making their debut at Wentworth this week, even with Viktor Hovland, Tony Finau and Patrick Reed also appearing at the Rolex Series event.
Changes into this Tour calendar saw the tournament moved to September from its May place, allowing players to include it together with Horschel hoping to impress and become the first American as Arnold Palmer to raise the trophy.
“[The BMW PGA] is similar to our Players Championship,” Horschel stated. “I feel as though it’s a significant on our excursion and the European Tour feels like that is a significant for them on their lecture.”
“It’s a very historic occasion, plenty of heritage. It might mean much to me because for another fact it would show that I am a world player, to have the ability to come over here and add my name to the decoration.
“I’m a world-class player and I can go around the world and triumph at areas in the world, not only America. You’ve got to have the ability to go outside your comfort zone and also play courses and countries you’re not utilised to and play well and win, to be a participant. That’s something I’ve always wanted to perform and hopefully I can achieve.”
Finau makes his initial appearance on the West Course that is renowned with the world trying to play more often beyond the USA in the years ahead.
“I really feel as if I’ve world-class game, and the best way to prove yourself is to travel the world playwith,” Finau explained. “I have always known that I needed to come back and compete against world class gamers on different kind of golf lessons.
“If you’re truly a world-class participant, I feel like you’ve got to win all over the world on various sorts of golf classes, and then I expect to experience different cultures and travel to different places.
“So a mixture of those items, I really feel like are a reason why I wished to bring a few European Tour events and maybe even several other excursions to my resum??.”
