One of the finest tournaments on the PGA TOUR.

REVIEW 2017.

The top 70 players on the PGA TOUR assembled for the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club, to contest the third Playoff event on the PGA TOUR. However, even in such a world-class field, nobody could keep pace with 33-year-old Marc Leishman, who produced a sensational performance to win the tournament with a record score of 261 strokes. Another Australian, Jason Day, also thrilled the spectators: the 2015 BMW Championship winner aced the 17th hole on day two to win the Hole-in-One Prize, a BMW M760i.

 

Leishman dominated the BMW Championship, which was being held to the north of Chicago for the third time after 2013 and 2015, from day one. He laid the foundation for his third title on the PGA TOUR with two extraordinary rounds (62 and 64). The Australian hit no fewer than 18 birdies on the first 36 holes. He continued to play virtually flawless golf over the course of the weekend, giving even his most dogged rivals Justin Rose (ENG, -18, T2), Rickie Fowler (USA, -18, T2) und Jason Day (AUS, -16, 4) no chance. This is Leishman’s first victory in a Playoff event, and sees him climb from seventh to fourth place in the FedExCup ranking.
