BMW Championship 2021

The penultimate event of the PGA TOUR Playoffs.

WORLD CLASS.

The BMW Championship features only the 70 best players of the season in the race for overall victory – and plenty of them will be sifted out as well: just 30 will qualify for the playoff finale after the tournament. It is hard to imagine a tougher top-level golf competition. Defending champion and world no. 1 Jon Rahm, reigning FedExCup champion Dustin Johnson, Olympic champion Xander Schauffele and BMW International Open champion Viktor Hovland will tee off in Baltimore alongside many other Major winners and Ryder Cup legends.

BMW Championship Facts

Tradition.

In 2007, the season in which the FedExCup Playoffs were introduced, one of the most iconic PGA TOUR tournaments was given a new name: BMW Championship. Previously, the tournament hosted by the Western Golf Association was known as the Western Open. It was held for the first time in 1899, which makes it the third-oldest tournament still being held on the PGA TOUR, after the Open (1860) and the U.S. Open (1895). The winner of the BMW Championship is presented with two trophies: the traditional J.K. Wadley Trophy – a challenge cup – and the BMW Trophy, which they get to keep.

Charity.
