BMW Championship

A driving force

The 2014 BMW Championship will be held September 4-7 at Cherry Hills Country Club in Englewood, Colo. The tournament is the penultimate event in the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. Only the top 70 golfers in the world qualify to compete. First held in 1899, the championship is the oldest tournament on the PGA TOUR and second oldest nationally after the U.S. Open.

All proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which has sent more than 10,000 student caddies to college since 1930. Since 2007, the event has raised more than $16 million for the Program.

2013 BMW Championship Winner: Zach Johnson

The 2013 BMW Championship winner and defending champion is Zach Johnson. Johnson started the final day at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Ill., three shots off behind overnight leader Jim Furyk (USA, -13, 3rd), but found himself right back in contention after a three-under front nine that featured back-to-back birdies on holes seven and eight. With Nick Watney (USA, -14, 2nd) storming up the leaderboard on his way to a round of 64 that ultimately earned him the runner-up spot, Johnson held his nerve on the back nine and picked up another birdie on the twelfth to keep pace with both Watney and Furyk.

The decisive moments came right at the end of this extraordinary tournament: with Watney already back in the clubhouse on -14, Furyk dropped shots 13 and 16, while Johnson picked up a brace of vital birdies on 16 and 17 to finally give himself some breathing space at the top of the leaderboard. A par on the 18th proved sufficient to earn Johnson his tenth PGA TOUR victory and the coveted BMW Championship trophy.
