I went to watch the practice day of the BMW PGA Championship today at Wentworth, Virginia Water and what a lovely day to choose to go.
The sun was out for the first time in about 6 weeks and some of the top players in the world were in touching distance as it’s normally pretty quiet on practice days.
Watching these guys on the range and chipping green is a real treat and makes you appreciate how good these players really are.
If you are new to the game then going to watch tournament golf on a practice day is a great experience as you are generally allowed to walk a lot nearer to the action than you would normally be allowed to, and you can learn a lot by listening to what the player’s and caddies are talking about and what they are thinking.
They’ve got course looking great this year and the new greens are looking much better this time around after a few complaints over the last couple of years. They’ve also dropped the 18th green by about 18 inches to make the long approach a little easier.
Tomorrow is the pro-am, so why don’t you get yourself down there and enjoy watching the golf without the big crowd!
Here are some of the pictures that I took today!
