England’s Oliver Wilson has been granted his Wentworth wish with an invitation to contest next week’s flagship BMW PGA Championship.
The former Ryder Cup star lost his main European Tour card last season for a first occasion since joining the Tour full time in 2005.
It has meant the 31-year old England player competing in lessor Tour events and also having to rely on invitations.
Wilson had lost out in a play-off in the 2008 BMW PGA Championship to Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez and record one of nine second places finishes in his career.
And during last week’s Madeira Islands Open Wilson spoke of his anticipation that BMW would afford him a start in the Tour’s flagship event.
“It’s fabulous organisers of the BMW PGA Championship have afforded me an invitation as it was one event I dearly wanted to play this year,” he said.
“I lost to Miguel Angel three years ago in a play-off so it’s nice that the organisers have remembered how close I went to victory.”
Wilson had his best finish in nearly 20 months last week in securing a share of fourth.
The Mansfield-born Wilson will now be contesting his 10th event this and with his top-five finish at Santo da Serra last week also ensuring he will compete in the following week’s ISPS Handa Wales Open.
