The BMW Championship is the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. Fifty golfers have made it thus far, and 30 will go to play the Tour Championship at East Lake at which The FedExCup itself will be awarded.

Lucas Glover goes into the BMW Championship following back-to-back wins with the chance to be only the third man since 2004 to get a hat trick of titles. Jon Rahm had a chance to achieve this earlier this season after wins at The Sentry and The American Express but came T7 next time out. For Glover it is a remarkable rise up the FedEx standings. Coming to to the last event before the playoffs he was well outside the top 70 qualifying places; now he is 4th with only Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy above him.

Rahm, top of the rankings, won the BMW Championship the last time that it was played at this year’s venue, Olympia Fields’ North Course, when in the fourth round he set the course record of 64. But Patrick Cantlay is the defending champion. He is on for his own hat trick as he also won it in 2021. He lies fifth in the FedEx rankings after losing in a playoff to Glover at the St Jude Championship last week.

In 2020 Rahm and Dustin Johnson had tied after 72 holes on a four under par. Rahm won the sudden-death playoff by sinking a 66ft birdie putt on the first extra hole.

Olympia Fields has hosted four men’s Majors, the first of which was in 1925, the PGA Championship and won by Walter Hagen. Johnny Farrell win the US Open here in 1928 with a score of 10 over; Jerry Barber won the PGA Championship of 1961 at three under and Jim Furyk the 2003 US Open at eight under.
