2019 BMW Championship
Round two of the FedEx Cup Playoffs happens this week in Chicago.
Course: Medinah #3 a par 72 of 7657 yards that seems to be changed every time they host a big event. I think the course will play about the same as it did for the 2012 Ryder Cup.
FedEX Cup points: 2000
Field: The entire top 70 in the FedEx Cup standings are currently expected to start at press time. The first place points for the OWGR are expected to be about 72, keeping this event as one of the strongest of the year despite a field of just 70 payers.
The field will be battling it out for one of the thirty spots in the Tour Championship next week in Atlanta. Additionally, the higher your position in the rankings, the better starting position you will have at East Lake.
Making the final thirty is of MAJOR importance. Everyone in that thirty is exempt into all four major championships next year. No matter how bad a year you are having (looking at you Patton Kizzire), you still get in the majors.
This is the final year of the BMW sponsorship and this tournament will have a new name next year. As for the old name, Western Open, the Western Golf Association still participates in this tournament. The tournament still raises money for the Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship Fund. Since 2007, the tournament has raised over $30,000,000 for this fund.
just say NO.... to practice swings
