2021 BMW Championship tee times, TV coverage, viewer's guide
Jon Rahm reacts to his putt on the 18th hole, the first and only playoff hole, during the final round of the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields in 2020.
Not since 1962 has the PGA Tour held an event in the Baltimore area until this week when Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, Md., hosts the BMW Championship, the second leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
Tony Finau arrives with the lead in the FedEx Cup standings after his Monday victory at The Northern Trust. The top 70 players on the points list will be competing in this no-cut event, trying to secure spots in the top 30 by the end of the final round in order to advance to the Tour Championship at East Lake, where the FedEx Cup champion will be crowned.
Jon Rahm, Cameron Smith, Patrick Cantlay, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Jordan Spieth, Harris English, Bryson DeChambeau and Abraham Ancer round out the top 10 in the points standings ahead of play this week. Among those eyeing the top 30 bubble with interest is Rory McIlroy, currently No. 28 in the standings, who will need a strong week at Caves Valley to tee off at East Lake.
Last year’s BMW Championship featured a thrilling playoff Rahm and Dustin Johnson. Rahm won at Olympia Fields after a 66-foot birdie bomb, but DJ had the last laugh winning the Tour Championship.
The BMW winner will earn a prize money payout of $1.71 million share of the $9.5 million purse. He’ll also receive 2,000 FedEx Cup points.
