A driving force
The 2016 BMW Championship will be played Sept. 6-11 at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana. 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 $21 million for the Program.
2015 BMW Championship Winner: Jason Day
Jason Day won the BMW Championship on Sept. 20 by an impressive six shots at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois.
Day finished at 22 under for the week, six shots better than second-place finisher Daniel Berger. Day also becomes only the third player since 2003 to win five or more times in one season. The others are Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh.
With the way, Day moved to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking and became only the second player this season to win in wire-to-wire fashion. Jordan Spieth went wire-to-wire at the Masters.
