About the Championship

The English PGA Championship was restored to the PGA tournament schedule for 2018 following an eight-year hiatus.

The inaugural event was staged at Goodwood in 2010 when Ben St John won the 54-hole tournament with a four-under-par score of 209.

The 2019 tournament went to Bowood Hotel Golf & Spa where Paul Hendriksen kept a cool head in sweltering conditions to win the title.

The English PGA Championship promises to provide one of the strongest fields of the season with exemptions for the 2019 Great Britain & Ireland PGA Cup team and all past Great Britain & Ireland Ryder Cup players.

Places have also been made available for last five PGA Professional Championship winners. The top 15 players from each of the seven PGA Regional Orders of Merit have also been given exemptions. All other places will be determined by seven regional qualifiers.
