Tarchetti not fazed by the limelight

Kent's Ant Tarchetti is confident he will not be fazed playing in front of a crowd 50 times bigger than he has experienced before when he tees it up at the BMW PGA Championship.

The South Region's Order of Merit winner has played several PGA Europro Tour events and made his debut on the European Tour this season - admittedly at the less glamorous Madeira Islands Open.

But a place in the field at the Tour's flagship event at Wentworth will be unlike anything he has experienced so far.

"It is the big one. I have also got the European Open to play in but this is the biggest event in Europe apart from The Open," said the 27-year-old pro from Littlestone Golf Club near New Romney.

"I think if you asked the same question to someone like Justin Rose he would say the same as well.

"I've been told sometimes there are 25,000 going through the gates on one day - the most I've probably played in front of is about 500 people.

"Hopefully the game will hold up enough to impress them."

The BMW PGA Championship takes place from Thursday until Sunday.
