Don't Forget the BMW PGA Championship

Although the PGA Tour is on hiatus this week, the European Tour is not. And this week we get their equivalent of THE PLAYERS, the BMW PGA. Terrell Hatton is the defending champion.

It's true that this event doesn't have the starpower of THE PLAYERS, but that's just a function of membership. There are more ET players than American players who have dual membership on both tours.

However, don't let that fool you. This event has a pedigree that can't be ignored.

Like THE PLAYERS, the BMW PGA is played on a legendary course. The Wentworth Club is not just the home of the ET. It also hosted the 1953 Ryder Cup and and the World Match Play Championship from 1964 until 2007. Everybody from Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer to Seve Ballesteros and Ernie Els has won there.

The BMW PGA is just as big an event. It's part of the Rolex Series, so we're talking BIG.

And if that wasn't enough, there are Ryder Cup slots up for grabs. While Steve Stricker will have likely named the rest of his team by the time you read this, Padraig Harrington won't be naming the rest of his team until the event finishes Sunday afternoon.

GC's coverage begins Thursday morning at 7am ET. There's no PGA Tour event this week, so why not watch this and see who makes Team Europe?
