Official Partners of the 2010 Ryder Cup

Official Partners



Since 1985, BMW has promoted amateur and professional golf tournaments internationally, taking into account the growing significance of golf for its customer base. The leading premium car manufacturer has been an important partner of The European Tour since the BMW International Open was launched in 1989. In 2005 BMW and The European Tour further extended their already strong partnership with BMW taking on title sponsorship of the Tour's flagship event, the PGA Championship at Wentworth. This highly significant development for European golf meant that BMW became a partner of three tournaments on The European Tour International Schedule, namely the BMW PGA Championship, the BMW International Open and until 2008 the BMW Asian Open, in addition to being the Official Car of The European Tour. In 2009, BMW will further extend its partnership with the European Tour with the first BMW Italian Open. In 2010, BMW will be an Official Partner of the Ryder Cup and will provide the Courtesy Car service to the event.
