The 2023 BMW PGA Championship took place from Sep 11 to 17 this week at the world-famous Wentworth Club.

Wentworth has once again captured the world's attention with its centennial historical heritage and innovative development.

This Championship is also referred to as the ultimate preparation for the forthcoming Ryder Cup.

The world's biggest stars, including four-time major winner Rory McIlroy, reigning Masters Champion Jon Rahm, and newly-crowned FedEx Cup winner Viktor Hovland will all feature in this week's BMW PGA Championship. Chinese players Li Haotong and Wu Ashun will also participate.

The 2023 BMW PGA Championship on the DP World Tour will be the first-ever sporting event to have its television production powered entirely by green hydrogen – producing zero emissions.

In a world first, for a sporting event, the European Tour Productions and IMG-led production will be powered 100 percent by green hydrogen, producing zero emissions.

Wentworth's philosophy on green energy and PGA standards has been continued onto the golf course at Reignwood Park in Bangkok, Thailand. The turf quality of both golf courses has met PGA standards.

Reignwood Group will continue to uphold the rich heritage of this centennial golf course and maintain a steadfast commitment to high-quality development.

With the support of its global green and health industry resources, Reignwood aims to establish an international platform for cultural and sports exchange and contribute to the global green industry and economic development.
