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. It is the penultimate playoff event, only the top 70 players are teeing 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 2020 BMW Championship (August 18-23) will be held at Olympia Fields Country Club in Medinah, Illinois, near Chicago. Find out more about the event on the official website:

A success story.

In 2007, the inaugural season of the playoffs for the FedExCup, one of the most iconic tournaments on the PGA TOUR was given a new name: BMW Championship. The successful partnership between BMW and the Western Golf Association at one of the highest-ranking golf tournaments has been extended several times since then, most recently through 2022. All net proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which provides full housing and tuition college scholarships to hardworking young caddies. Since the tournament’s inception in 2007, the BMW Championship has raised more than $30 million for the Evans Scholars Foundation.

2019 HIGHLIGHTS.

2019 HIGHLIGHTS.

The legendary Course No. 3 at the Medinah Country Club was the spectacular setting for the appearance of the 70 best players on the PGA TOUR at the BMW Championship. On Saturday, Major winner Justin Thomas slotted into the lead role. The 26-year-old produced an otherworldly performance in the third round, setting a course record of 61 to head into the final day with a six-stroke lead. The 2017 FedExCup champion held his nerve on Sunday, repelling every attacking move and claiming victory with an overall score of 263 strokes.

 

In 2012, the Medinah Country Club had been the venue for Team Europe’s great Ryder Cup comeback that has gone down in golfing history as the “Miracle at Medinah”. The round that had effectively secured a tenth PGA TOUR win for Thomas was scarcely less astonishing. He started the Saturday with five back-to-back birdies, adding three more and two eagles during the round to leave the world-class field in his wake. Thomas finished 25 under par – the lowest score to par in the history of the BMW Championship – to relegate Patrick Cantlay (USA, -22) and Hideki Matsuyama (JPN, -20) to second and third places.
