BMW Championship Turning-Point for FedEx Playoffs

This weekend the FedEx playoffs head to Chicago at the Conway Farms Golf Club for the BMW Championship where the best in the world battle it out for the back half of their post-season.

Here are the storylines:

“While Spieth, Thomas and Johnson are locks for top-5 positions at East Lake, putting their FedExCup hopes into their own hands, the chase remains to learn who joins them. Hideki Matsuyama and Jon Rahm have inside track. … The spotlight also falls on No. 30, where Bill Haas is on the bubble to advance. In each of the past two years, four men have played their way into the finale after starting the BMW outside the top 30. … Phil Mickelson, who tied for sixth at TPC Boston, will become the all-time leader in FedExCup Playoff starts when he tees it up for his 41st postseason event. That breaks a tie with Bubba Watson, who didn’t advance from Boston.”

Sportsline simulated the outcome 10 000 times and here are their odds predictions:

Jordan Spieth: 13/2
Dustin Johnson: 15/2
Justin Thomas: 10/1
Rickie Fowler 12/1
Hideki Matsuyama: 14/1
Jon Rahm: 14/1
Jason Day: 18/1
Paul Casey: 20/1
Rory McIlroy: 20/1
Henrik Stenson: 25/1
Brooks Koepka: 28/1
Justin Rose: 28/1
Patrick Reed: 28/1
Matt Kuchar: 33/1
Marc Leishman: 40/1

Should be great watching as the race to the top is tight and every point counts this late in the season!
