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.

TICKETS.

The 2017 BMW Championship (September 12-17) will take place at Conway Farms Golf Club (Lake Forest, IL). After 2013 and 2015, this is the third time that the top 70 golfers on the PGA TOUR will assemble to the north of Chicago for the third playoff event, in the hope of qualifying for the season finale. Australian Jason Day produced a dominant display to lead from start to finish the last time the tournament was held at Conway Farms in 2015. Tickets for the 2017 BMW Championship are on sale now.

REVIEW 2016.

124,800 golf fans followed Dustin Johnson's impressive play during the 2016 BMW Championship, which saw him finish with a total score of 265 (23 under par) at the Crooked Stick Golf Club (Indianapolis) to claim victory and 1,530,000 US dollars in prize money.

 

He skillfully left his rivals in his wake, got the course record with 63 shots on Friday and in doing so took the lead, which the big-hitter defended confidently on Sunday. The only players who came close to matching the pace set by Johnson were Paul Casey (-20, 2nd) and Roberto Castro (-17, 3rd). American Castro started the tournament with two excellent rounds of 65 (seven under par) but was unable to maintain that standard of play into the weekend, meaning he must wait a little longer for his first title on the PGA TOUR.

 

It was a different story for Casey. The Englishman put Johnson under pressure early on Sunday, shooting birdies on two of the first three holes to move into a tie for the lead with “DJ”. However, the overnight leader responded superbly with four birdies in the next five holes. Charl Schwartzel, Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar, Ryan Palmer and J.B. Holmes finished 12 under par in fourth place.
