    Martin Kaymer, Joost Luiten, Mike Lorenzo Vera, Lee Westwood and Bernd Wiesberger will go head to head from their own homes in the BMW Indoor Invitational, a new series of virtual golf tournaments using the latest simulator technology.

    With regular tournament action currently suspended due to the ongoing global efforts against the spread of coronavirus, many leading professionals have been turning to solutions at home, including the latest TrackMan software and simulators, to keep their golf game sharp.

    The BMW Indoor Invitational powered by TrackMan will enable them to compete against each other, giving golf fans the chance to watch all the action on the European Tour’s social media channels using #BMWTrackManInvitational.

    The new series will consist of five one-round (18-hole) strokeplay tournaments played virtually on some of Europe’s most iconic golf courses, powered by TrackMan.

    Each tournament winner will receive $10,000 towards their chosen charity or relief fund which has been helping communities impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

    Players will compete remotely using their home set-up between Monday and Wednesday and the action will then be shown on the European Tour’s social media channels each Saturday for the next five weeks:
