World No. 3 Rory McIlroy committed Friday to play in September’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club in Surrey, England.

The Northern Ireland star won the flagship DP World Tour event in 2014 but skipped the tournament each of the past two years.

“I look forward to competing again at the BMW PGA Championship,” said McIlroy, 33. “It’s an event I love playing. The West Course has been good to me in the past and the fans are very supportive.”

The four-time major winner finished third at The Open Championship last week at St. Andrew’s in Scotland.

The BMW PGA Championship runs from Sept. 8-11 and features a prize pool of approximately $7.9 million USD.

Billy Horschel is the defending champion at Wentworth after finishing at 19 under in 2021, one shot ahead of three players.
