Pep Guardiola to tee it up alongside Tommy Fleetwood
At the BMW Pro-Am
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, will tee it up alongside Europe’s Number One golfer Tommy Fleetwood in the Celebrity Pro-Am at the BMW PGA Championship on Wednesday May 23.
The Spaniard played in the Pro-Am at last year’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Hosted by the Rory Foundation and he will now make his debut in the traditional curtain-raiser for the BMW PGA Championship.
Guardiola will be joined by Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood, the Englishman with whom he was playing golf when he found out that City had clinched the title courtesy of rivals Manchester United losing to West Brom last month. The pair will joined by former Southampton star Matt Le Tissier and ex-Manchester United and Manchester City goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel.
Other footballers already confirmed include the Premier League’s record goal scorer Alan Shearer, Man United duo Paul Scholes and Teddy Sheringham, and former Liverpool stars Robbie Fowler and Jamie Redknapp. Tickets to see them are available to buy here.
Pep plays off a handicap of 14 and is looking forward to taking on the famous West Course.
“I’ve heard some great things about the BMW PGA Championship and I’m looking forward to testing myself in the Pro-Am,” said Guardiola. “After winning the Premier League, it will be a nice way to finish a great season.
“I know there are quite a few sports stars and former footballers in the field, so I think it will be very competitive and hopefully my golf will live up to the event.”
