FedEx Cup playoffs: McIlroy, Scott nice picks for BMW Championship



Medinah No. Three is a 7,657-yard, par-72 beast of a golf course simply exterior of Chicago that has hosted 5 main championships and a Ryder Cup in its storied historical past. This week, Medinah performs host to the BMW Championship and a FedEx Cup subject that has been trimmed to the highest 70. Listed here are a favourite, a mid-range contender and an extended shot to win the match:

Rory McIlroy (8/1): I imagine this golf course is ideal for McIlroy. He’s very lengthy and straight off the tee, and is No. 1 on tour in par-Three scoring, which can go a great distance this week. McIlroy’s season arguably has been his finest ever with 13 top-10 finishes.

Adam Scott (25/1): It’s the identical previous story with Scott this season — beautiful ball hanging mixed with poor placing. However he’s fared properly on lengthy programs towards essentially the most aggressive fields and must be close to the highest once more.

Billy Horschel (50/1): Horschel gained the BMW, Tour Championship and FedEx Cup title in 2014. Sitting 39th within the factors standings, he’ll want an excellent BMW to make it to East Lake subsequent week, and I anticipate he’s as much as the duty.
