BMW congratulates PGA TOUR Player Jason Day on winning the 2015 BMW Championship today at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, IL. Jason finished with a final round of 22-under to capture the victory against one of the strongest fields in golf this year. With his win, Jason will be the #1 ranked golfer in the world as he heads into the TOUR Championship.
“The way I feel about my game, my confidence level is the highest it has ever been in my entire life,” said Jason Day. “It’s been an amazing run for me and today’s win tops it off being able to get to #1 in the world.”
“Congratulations to Jason Day on his brilliant performance this week,” said Ludwig Willisch, President & CEO, BMW of North America “Jason showed tremendous skill and determination and we are proud to present him with the J.K. Wadley and BMW Championship trophies.”
All net proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which grants full university housing and tuition to hardworking, young caddies. Since BMW became title sponsor in 2007, the tournament has raised more than $20 million for the Evans Scholars Foundation.
On Thursday, September 17, Jordan Spieth recorded a hole-in-one, resulting in the donation of another BMW Hole-In-One Scholarship, a full, four-year Evans Scholarship worth $100,000. Spieth aced the 2nd hole, his 11th hole of the day, with a 7-iron, from 184 yards. His hole-in-one marks the fourth time in the last five years that BMW has awarded a BMW Hole-in-One Scholarship.
