Even the penultimate stop on the FedExCup playoffs has underway this week in Medinah, Illinois in the BMW Championship. Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy would be the +800 co-favorites to go all of the way when it has to do with opportunities lists.
Koepka and McIlroy will be the +800 favorites in BetOnline, with Jon Rahm (+1000), Dustin Johnson (+1400), Justin Rose (+1600), Justin Thomas (+1600), Patrick Cantlay (+2000), Webb Simpson (+2000), Patrick Reed (+2200) and Adam Scott (+2500) rounding out the top 10.
Only 30 spots are online for the Tour Championship at East Lake, therefore a performance at Medinah is critical. The time FedExCup that is reigning winner 2016 winner McIlroy and Rose played with the course was at the 2012 Ryder Cup — a victory for Europe. 2,000 FedExCup points will be received by the BMW Championships winner. No man has successfully defended his FedExCup name.
Last year at the championship Keegan Bradley pulled off an improbable triumph to win for first time in five years when the occasion has been held at Aronimink Golf Club in Newton Square. This was the very first time Bradley advanced since 2013 into the Tour Championship. The American is a +15000 long haul to go back to back.
The course, a 7,657-yard level 72, has become a staple among American golfing dating all of the way back. The course has hosted the Ryder Cup (2012), three U.S. Opens (1949, 1975 and 1990), 2 PGA Championships (1999, 2006) and also lots of different events in the pre-PGA Tour era.
