"It's been an unbelievable week," he said. "I'm excited to be the 2021 BMW PGA Champion.

"This event to me after I left here in 2019 was an event I wanted to win in my career before it ended."

He becomes the first American To win A Rolex Series title and only the second to win the event since Arnold Palmer in 1975.

"Adding my name to Arnold Palmer, that's legendary stuff. That guy, if it wasn't for him, we wouldn't have this modern era of golf to play in front of thousands of fans and big sponsors. Tiger Woods took it to another level but Arnie is the one who started it. So to have my name on that trophy next to his being the second American to win this event here at Wentworth is pretty special."
