The BMW PGA Championship is one of the most high-profile tournaments on the European Tour. Year-on-year, celebrities from the world of sport, film, music and broadcast come together to play the Championship’s star-studded Pro-Am.
This year sees Fleur East participate in the Slingsby Golf Academy to encourage more women to take to the course this summer. Fleur will be competing with Helen Skelton, Sky Sports Formula 1 presenter Natalie Pinkham and broadcaster Bela Shah in a five-part series capturing the highs and lows as they take to the sport and train to compete for a place in the Pro-Am at the prestigious Wentworth Club on Wednesday 8th September.
When asked about her involvement in the academy, Fleur East said: “I like to be able to be able to inspire and create change, to be part of a movement. It’s really exciting to take on something new and be involved in something that’s bigger than me. I like to say I’m not competitive but the moment I’m faced with a challenge, something I can win, something I can compete in, then the fire is ignited within me!”
