Tournament officials confirmed on Tuesday that the BMW Championship will return to Crooked Stick Golf Club for the 2016 edition of the tournament, according to the IndyStar:

“We are thrilled to be bringing the BMW Championship back to Crooked Stick Golf Club, where we had such a successful event in 2012, thanks in large part to the tremendous community and business support in the market,” said Vince Pellegrino, senior vice president of tournaments for the Western Golf Association, which conducts the event. “We look forward to engaging again with the great people of Indiana and to producing the very best fan environment possible.”

The 2012 BMW Championship, which was also held at Crooked Stick and won by Rory McIlroy, was named the PGA Tour’s “Tournament of the Year.”

“The PGA TOUR is delighted to partner with BMW, the Western Golf Association and Crooked Stick Golf Club in returning the BMW Championship to the Indianapolis area,” said Andy Pazder, PGA TOUR Executive Vice President and Chief of Operations. “The tournament received overwhelming community support in its first visit and we anticipate another tremendous event in 2016.”
