The European Tour has reason to celebrate, as long as it can avoid comparisons.

The BMW PGA Championship this week is the signature event on the European Tour schedule and will be held on a revamped West course at Wentworth that has players raving. At least before they have to put scores on their cards.

The tournament kicks off the new "Rolex Series," the first of eight tournaments that offer $7 million in prize money ($8 million for the last one in Dubai).
