BMW CHAMPIONSHIP.

One of the finest tournaments on the PGA TOUR.

Since it was first held in 2007, the BMW Championship has been one of the most important tournaments on the PGA TOUR. As the third of four playoff events, only the top 70 players in the PGA TOUR rankings tee off. At stake: 30 coveted tickets to the season finale. Rarely does one see such a high-class field, and the tournament experience is also outstanding: the BMW Championship, which is held at alternating venues throughout the Midwest of the USA, was named "Tournament of the Year" by the PGA TOUR in 2008, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

 

The BMW Championship (August 13-18, 2019) will be held at Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois, near Chicago. Find out more about the event on the official website:

2018 HIGHLIGHTS.

2018 HIGHLIGHTS.

At the end of a thrilling tournament, Keegan Bradley (USA) and JustinRose (ENG) both finished on -20 and one shot clear of the high-class field. Bradley came out on top in the play-off to claim his first PGA TOUR win for six years. Rose narrowly missed out on his second victory at the prestigious BMW Championship, which he had previously won in 2011. However, he did reach a milestone in his career: the 2016 Olympic champion replaced Dustin Johnson (USA, T24, -11) at the top of the world rankings. 2014 BMW Championship winner Billy Horschel and “PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year 2017” Xander Schauffele (both USA, -19) finished tied in third place.
As well as Rose, many other Ryder Cup players from Europe and the USA were in excellent form ahead of the showdown in Paris. Rory McIlroy (NIR, 5, -18) was tied for the lead after round one with 14-time major winner Tiger Woods (USA, T6, -17), who was named as a “Captain’s Pick” for the Ryder Cup by US captain Jim Furyk on Tuesday. Tommy Fleetwood (ENG, T8, -16) and Open winner Francesco Molinari (ITA, T8, -16) also impressed, as did Webb Simpson (USA, T6, -17), Rickie Fowler (USA, T8, -16) and defending FedExCup champion Justin Thomas (USA, T12, -15).

2018 BMW Championship

Aronimink Golf Club, Newtown Square, PA.

The 2018 BMW Championship has been held at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. Since its founding in 1896, Aronimink has hosted the PGA Championship, the Senior PGA Championship and the U.S. Amateur. Aronimink’s Donald Ross-designed course is consistently rated one of the finest and most challenging in the United States. The 2018 BMW Championship marked the first time since 1959 that the event, formerly known as the Western Open, has been contested in the state of Pennsylvania. That tournament, held at Pittsburgh Field Club, was won by Mike Souchak.  

FEDEXCUP.

The playoffs are the highlight of the PGA TOUR. Over the course of the season, the world’s top golfers score points towards the FedExCup ranking, with only the best qualifying for the final four tournaments. The field is reduced after each of these playoffs. Only the top 70 tee off at the BMW Championship, with 30 places at the season finale – the TOUR Championship – at stake.
