BMW Championship 2018 - Preview
What a few weeks for Bryson DeChambeau (17.00) winning both The Northern Trust and The Dell Technologies Championship, those two wins have earned the young American 4000 FedExCup points and have catapulted him to the top of the rankings over 2000 points clear of his closest challengers.
It would take something special from the chasing pack to overhaul Bryson with only two tournaments left to play but with the likes of Dustin Johnson (9.00) and Justin Rose (13.00) chasing there may well be a few more twists and turns before the cup is safe.
Marc Leishman (51.00) won last years BMW Championships by five shots from Ricky Fowler (26.00) and Justin Rose who both tied for second with Jason Day (21.00) another two shots back, all four are once again have made the cut and are amongst the 70 players still vying for the FedExCup.
There are several past winners of the BMW Championships here this week including Rory Mcllroy (17.00), Tiger Woods (21.00) and Billy Horschel (67.00).
Below are the current favourites for the event and their recent form coming in:
Dustin Johnson - 9.00
PGA Form - Unbelievable season for Dustin with three wins, two second place finishes, two third place finishes and eleven top 10's from only 18 tournaments played.
Finished 7th at last weeks Dell Tech Champs and has won this tournament twice already (2010, 2016) so he obviously goes well here, one to look out for this week.
Justin Rose - 13.00
PGA Form - Two wins, two second place finishes and one third place finish with nine top 10's from 16 starts, a great season for the Englishman has seen him rise to number four in the world.
After a couple of under par efforts Justin bounced back finishing second at last weeks Dell Tech Champs, he has won her before back in 2011 and finished second last year, he will be a contender this week for sure.
Brooks Koepka - 15.00
PGA Form - Two wins this season on tour including a major The PGA Championships only a few weeks ago, six top tens from only twelve starts he is certainly having a season to remember.
Three top 10's and a 12th place finish last week in his last four starts including winning the USPGA Champs, not the best record here (T12 2017) but he's in career best form and may well be at the top of the leaderboard come Sunday.
Justin Thomas - 15.00
PGA Form - Three wins, one second place finish and nine top 10's for Justin from 21 starts has seen him rise to 3rd ranked player in the world.
Outside the top 20 last week but had three top 10's including a win from three starts prior, not the best record here (T13 2015) so maybe look to others this week who have proven form around here.
Bryson DeChambeau - 17.00
PGA Form - Three wins, a second and a third place finish and nine top 10's from 24 events has seen Bryson climb to number seven in the world, this season has certainly been his breakthrough year.
After several poor performances Bryson has found his touch and won the last two PGA Tour events, the man to beat on current form but only T33 last year in his first start here so an unknown quantity around here.
Rory Mcllroy - 17.00
PGA Form - Only one win, one second place finish and five top 10's for Rory this season from 16 events has seen his slip down to 8th ranked player in the world.
Solid form coming here, T12 last week and three top 10's from his last five events, Rory won this back in 2012 and has had two top 10's since, he likes it here just needs to find that winning touch again.
Jason Day - 21.00
PGA Form - Two wins, a second place finish but only five top 10's from 18 events played this season, he is either hot or cold after coming back from his lengthy injury but a solid season none the less.
Not the best form coming into this week after missing the cut at last weeks Dell Tech Champs, Jason has won here though back in 2015 so has to be respected this week.
Now lets look for some value, a few with decent form coming in to this week and a few that have performed well here in the past.
C.T. Pan - 81.00
Tied 4th last weekend at the Dell Tech Champs after his second a few weeks prior at the Wyndham suggest he is finding a bit of form and could play well this week at decent odds.
Rafael Cabrera Bello - 51.00
Top 10 finish last week and has a really good season on both the PGA and the European tour, certainly has the talent to win and he will be a player to watch this week at odds.
Mark Leishman - 51.00
Won this by five shots last year and has had a decent season with two second place finishes, has shown glimpses in recent weeks suggesting he isn't far away from winning, respect.
BMW Championship 2018 Tips
Mark Leishman - Win @ 51.00 Top 5 @ 9.00 Top 10 @ 4.80 - BEST BET
Won this last year and has been brilliant in patches this year just needs to put it together for four rounds.
Rory Mcllroy - Win @ 17.00 Top 5 @ 3.80
If he gets the putter working this week he will be a hard man to beat.
