KAYMER: BMW PGA STILL THE FLAG­SHIP EVENT IN EUROPE

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORTS -

Martin Kaymer be­lieves the BMW PGA Cham­pi­onship re­mains the Euro­pean Tour’s flag­ship event - ahead of the sea­son-fi­nale DP World Tour Cham­pi­onship in Dubai. The Ger­man said: “If you con­sider the field, I wouldn’t agree be­cause there is a full field of 140 play­ers and Dubai is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent [re­stricted to the top 60 on the Race to Dubai]. In terms of prize money and world rank­ing points it’s pretty much the same - I just think there is so much more his­tory be­hind the PGA. It’s a big event. “I’ve won ma­jors, World Golf Cham­pi­onship events, The Play­ers Cham­pi­onship, but to win the flag­ship event in Europe and not only on the PGA Tour would be great for my re­sume.”
