Delaware Is Hosting Their First PGA Tournament Ever And Tiger Will Be Prowling
Despite being “The First State,” Delaware is one of America’s only ones that have never hosted a PGA golf tournament. Thankfully, that changes this week, as the PGA Tour’s BMW Championship arrives at the Wilmington Country Club from Aug. 16-21.
The club is expecting over 100,000 spectators for this second event in the FedEx Cup Playoffs, which is no surprise, seeing as the field is comprised of the 70 best PGA golfers from the 2022 season. Only the top 30 will progress to next week’s finale, the tour championship at East Lake Golf Club in Georgia.
Not only will the most talented golfers in the world be competing, but Tiger Woods is scheduled to meet with several of them on Tuesday in an effort to galvanize support around the PGA Tour in its ongoing battle with the rival LIV Golf series, sources confirmed to ESPN on Monday.
For those who’d like to attend, some tickets ranging between $85 to $950 per day are still available for purchase at BMWChampionship.com. For those who prefer the comfort of watching from home, the tournament will be broadcast live Thursday and Friday on the GOLF Channel and Saturday and Sunday on NBC.
