At 6:32 p.m. BST, play at the BMW PGA Championship was suspended following news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
From Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, England, and beyond, the golf world mourned the loss of Britain's longest reigning monarch at age 96.
Rest in Peace Your Majesty, you will be forever in our hearts. God save The King 🇬🇧

In 1947, I remember being at school when the Queen and her family drove past. I vividly remember seeing her wave at us - she had grace and valor as a young lady, and that remained throughout her tenure as Her Majesty. She was a fine leader and even finer woman. Rest In Peace. pic.twitter.com/K0ebAkWm8x

Living most of my adult life in England I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Queen Elizabeth.
An inspiration to so many all over the world.
Rest in peace, Your Majesty.

It’s just like.. she somehow represented all the good about being British. That so few in power do. I’m really sad. #RIP
