2017 FedEx Cup: BMW Championship

1. BMW Championship

This year’s BMW Championship will be taking place at Conway Farms Golf Club, in Lake Forest, Illinois. The course has a par of 71 and spans 7,208 yards with 3 par 5s (holes 8, 14, & 18)! The purse for this weekend comes to a total of 8.75 million dollars, with the 1st place winner receiving $1,575,000 (18%) of that.

One Thursday and Friday pairing you won’t want to miss is Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, & Dustin Johnson (who are ranked 1, 2, & 3 in the current FedEx Cup standings). With Dustin and Justin having won the first two FedEx Cup tournaments this season, and Jordan Speith the FedEx Cup winner in 2015, this group should be something to watch.
