The twosome, who will be teaming up this weekend for the GolfSixes tournament, were quoted as follows:

Matt Wallace

“The BMW PGA Championship is a tournament that I’ve grown up with and have always known is one of the best that we play. I’m super excited, and I love the golf course. We always look forward to it as pros.

“I think you can tell just by the field, with people coming back over from America to play on the European Tour, it’s great for us, great for me and I’m excited to play with the big guys again.

“I had heard quite a bit about the greens being not so good. The tournament and the golf course decided to change that and now the course is just fantastic.

“I know Kenny has worked hard to get this golf course right up to where it deserves to be. You know when you come here the condition is going to be amazing.”

Eddie Pepperell

“It will be great to come back. I’ve played in four BMW PGA Championships, and did well in my rookie year, which is still one of the best moments of my career.

“Being in contention down the stretch here was a great experience and I’ve always loved coming back ever since that. We always receive great support, so I’m looking forward to that.”

“It definitely adds an extra something when you’re hitting balls on the same range as Rory McIlroy or Paul Casey.

“For everyone involved, we know how much Rory brings to an event, so when he shows up and plays, it certainly adds a lot of excitement across the board from fans to players.”
