German carmaker BMW has signed a new Worldwide Partner agreement with the Ryder Cup.
The deal will cover the next two Ryder cups: at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin, in 2020 and at Marco Simone, Italy, in 2022.
Previously, BMW was the Official Car Partner of Ryder Cup Europe at The K Club, Ireland, in 2006, Celtic Manor, Wales, in 2010, Gleneagles, Scotland, in 2014, and Le Golf National, France, this year.
BMW has also extended its Official Partner deal with the European Tour for four more years, and will continue as title sponsor of the BMW PGA Championship and BMW International Open until 2022.
Bernhard Kuhnt, president and chief executive of BMW North America, said: “As a supporter of golf globally for the past 30 years, golf remains the perfect platform for our brand to engage our network of owners, dealers and golf fans across the world.”
BMW’s association with the European Tour dates back to the first BMW International Open in 1989.
