The Preview: BMW Championship – Golf Australia Magazine

55 players got their marching orders after last week’s The Northern Trust in New Jersey and another 40 will be gone by the end of this week’s BMW Championship in Baltimore.

The tournament, which was originally known as the Western Open, marks the first time in almost 60 years the Tour has staged an event in Baltimore though the Caves Valley course has hosted two senior majors and an LPGA teams event.

DEFENDING CHAMPION: Jon Rahm need extra holes to defeat Dustin Johnson in 2020, just one week removed from Johnson’s own dominant victory at The Northern Trust.

Johnson levelled Rahm’s 72-hole score with a long birdie putt at the last, before Rahm produced his own theatrics, holing a putt from over 60 feet on Olympia Fields’ 18th hole to claim the title.
