There were surprises in store at Wentworth golf course as the European Tour came to an unexpected finish. After a week of sunshine, Korean An Byeong-hun became the latest BMW PGA Champion as well as a record breaker to boot. The 23 year old hit 65 on the Sunday breaking the 21-under-par-aggregate tournament record.
Many expected Rory McIlroy, the defending champion, to come out swinging. He exited on the 36th hole after he carded six bogeys and two double bogeys in the second round of the competition. It was after all his fourth consecutive tournament and he cited ‘mental fatigue’ as a reason for his performance.
Perhaps some of the excitement of playing in the celebrity pro-am on the Wednesday affected his game for the rest of the week. A flurry of admirers followed McIlroy around the course hoping to catch a glimpse of his team mate Niall Horan; teen dream and an ex-quarter of global pop superstars One Direction. The crowd levels were unheard of leaving McIlroy and fellow team member and former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes baffled.
Trulawn played host to the celebrities with our artificial grass present in the exclusive BMW PGA Championship Pavilion terrace. The bar overlooked the grandstand at the 18th green with a steady stream of sun warming the room. The terrace saw the likes of sportsmen Teddy Sheringham, Nigel Mansell, Kevin Peterson, television presenters Chris Evans and Declan Donnelly (though Ant had sadly pulled his back out), model Jodie Kidd and the aforementioned Niall Horan.
We also exhibited our putting greens in the Championship Village with lots of interest from golfing fans from all over the country. Many spectators had a go at getting a hole in one by either putting from the Trulawn ProPutt or chipping from the fringe made from Trulawn Luxury. John, our Trulawn Golf expert, said it had been a ‘great success’ with old and young alike enjoying a go.
Overall it was a great week with some blessed weather, tournament surprises and a fantastic opportunity to meet a few future golf champions! See you next year!
Trulawn, playtime friendly artificial grass, we specialise in supplying and installing artificial grass for schools and child safe surfaces for play areas. We can install a soft shockpad underlay when installing the grass that creates an even safer, cushioned feel to the surface.
Trulawn's artificial grass is a pretty tough product, it’s designed to withstand the rain, sun, wind, hyper children and playful pets.
Artificial grass is made of soft and springy materials, which most animals find is perfect for running and rolling around on all year long! Introduce your family pets to our artificial grass and see how much they enjoy their new playground!
Trulawn grass is covered by our guarantee, but we ensure that our synthetic grass is fully stabilised against UV fading so you have peace of mind for years to come.
Other, lower quality grasses from alternative suppliers may not provide protection against fading from intense sunlight and weathering nor might they provide a guarantee.
Paw prints and muddy boots, the horror! For most homes, when the rain comes (and it comes pretty frequently in the UK!), you can bet that somebody is going to end up walking mud through the house after being in the garden, whether it's children or dogs!
Trulawn’s artificial grass installations make those worries disappear! Rain or shine, keep your schedule and your home mud free!
Artificial grass is essentially maintenance free, obviously, you no longer need to cut your grass. So bin the mower and enjoy the time you would have spent dragging the mower in and out of the shed, emptying the cuttings and walking back and forth by relaxing in your garden with your always perfect looking lawn.
We’re advised constantly to refrain from wasting water on garden use, in high summer with soaring temperatures you don’t want your meticulously manicured lawn to scorch. Trulawn, being so low maintenance means it never needs watering.
With artificial grass there is no need to worry about water drainage, artificial lawns drain water like a regular lawn and even better in some cases. All our grass has built in drainage technology that quickly allows water to pass through the pile and into the ground below.
