Pro Golf Return to Region Next Week

The PGA Tour returns to the Philadelphia region next week when when the BMW Championship will be held at Arnonmink Golf Club in Newtown Square from September 4th through 9th.

Back when the US Open was held at Merion, lots of pro golfers were spotted in Conshohocken. For example, Phil Mickelson had breakfast at the Conshohocken Cafe and Justin Rose celebrated his US Open victory at Gypsy Saloon.

The big reason for this is that the Philadelphia Marriott West always serves as one of the primary hotels utilized by the tournaments. For the upcoming tournament, it will be the hotel headquarters for staff and officials.

So who is playing in the tournament? We aren’t sure yet, because the players have until Friday, August 31st to officially enter the tournament. The event is using Tiger Woods in its advertising, so expect to see him.

We think it is pretty likely players and broadcasters will be spotted in the Conshohockens. Let us know if you spot someone.

Tickets are available online.
