Statement from the European Tour group

On behalf of our members and everyone connected with the European Tour group and the BMW PGA Championship, it is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

She truly was an inspiration to people the world over.

Out of respect for Her Majesty and the Royal Family, play has been suspended at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth Club for the remainder of Thursday and flags at Wentworth Club will be lowered to half-mast.

Furthermore, no play will take place at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday and the golf course and practice facilities will be closed.

Further updates on the resumption of play will be provided in due course.

Our deepest sympathies and condolences are with the Royal Family at this time.
