A driving force
The 2017 BMW Championship will be played Sept. 12-17 at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois. 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 professional championship after the U.S. Open.
All proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which has sent more than 10,400 student caddies to college since 1930. Since 2007, the event has raised more than $24.4 million for the Program.
2016 BMW Championship Winner: Dustin Johnson
Powerful off the tee and relentless with the putter, Dustin Johnson didn't give anyone much of a chance Sept. 11 by closing with a 5-under 67 to win the 2016 BMW Championship by three shots and move to the top of the FedExCup rankings.
Johnson won for the third time in his last eight tournaments dating to his first major at the 2016 U.S. Open, and this might have been his most complete performance.
"I've got a lot of confidence in every part of my game," Johnson said.
The win was Johnson's second at the BMW Championship. He won the J.K. Wadley Trophy for the first time in 2010.
