      ROUND RECAPS
      Keegan Bradley secures win on 1st playoff hole at BMW
    The city of Chicago and the Western Golf Association once again play host to the BMW Championship, the penultimate stop in the 2018-’19 PGA TOUR season. Results will go a long way toward determining who makes the all-important top-30 TOUR Championship at East Lake.

    Several players in the BMW field, such as reigning FedExCup champion Justin Rose and 2016 champion Rory McIlroy, last played the course at the 2012 Ryder Cup, a victory for Europe. A year ago, Rose lost a playoff at the BMW, but his 2-P2-T4 in his last three starts was good enough to win the FedExCup. He is trying to become the first to successfully defend his FedExCup title.

    FIELD NOTES: Tiger Woods, who withdrew from THE NORTHERN TRUST with a strained oblique, won the PGA Championship at Medinah in 1999 and 2006. He said on Twitter that he is still hopeful that he can play the BMW. … Ian Poulter, who was 60th in the FedExCup going into last week, went 4-0-0 for Europe as they came back from 10-6 deficit at the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah.Justin Rose made putts of 12, 35 and 12 feet on the last three holes, respectively, to beat Phil Mickelson in singles. … Keegan Bradley, the defending BMW champion, partnered with Mickelson and went 3-1-0. … Bradley’s only loss came in singles to Rory McIlroy, who was almost late for their tee time and required a police escort. … Paul Casey is set to return after sitting out the first Playoffs event to see his family after a four-week stretch on the road.

    FEDEXCUP: Winner receives 2,000 points.

    STORYLINES: This is the last chance to crack the 30-man FedExCup Playoffs finale, and the results at Medinah could also determine who goes into the revamped TOUR Championship at 10 under par and with a two-shot lead over his closest pursuer before the tournament starts. … Players had just one week, as opposed to two, to work their way into the top 70 in the FedExCup to qualify for the BMW. … Jordan Spieth, the 2015 FedExCup champion who has gone over two years without a victory, was projected to move from 69th to third in the FedExCup as he went into the weekend atop THE NORTHERN TRUST leaderboard. … Proceeds from the BMW will help fund Evans Scholarships for caddies; since ’07, the BMW Championship has raised more than $30 million for college scholarships for caddies of modest means.


    COURSE: A Rees Jones redesign of a Tom Bendelow original, Medinah No. 3 is a 7,657-yard, par 72. This will mark the fourth time the WGA’s professional golf event will be held at Medinah No. 3, but the first since 1966. Founded in the 1920s by a group of Shriners, the club boasts three courses, all designed by Bendelow. The massive 120,000-square foot clubhouse designed by Richard Schmid is a unique architectural blend with Byzantine, Oriental and Louis XIV influences. Medinah is one of the Chicago area's best known venues for championship golf. Course No. 3 has the Ryder Cup (2012), three U.S. Opens (1949, 1975, and 1990), two PGA Championships (1999, 2006), three Western Opens (1946, 1962 and 1966), and other events in the pre-PGA Tour era. Players who have won at Medinah include "Lighthorse" Harry Cooper, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson, Billy Casper, Gary Player, Hale Irwin and Tiger Woods.

    For those visiting the Chicago area, must-play courses include Prairie Landing Golf Club, Ravisloe Golf Club, and Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. Make your reservations through TeeOff.com.

    72-HOLE RECORD: 261, Marc Leishman (2017).

    18-HOLE RECORD: 59, Jim Furyk (2nd round, 2013).

    LAST YEAR: After faltering on the weekend at THE NORTHERN TRUST, Keegan Bradley bounced back at the BMW, winning for the first time in over five years at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. Bradley, who had used a belly-putter to win three times in his first two seasons, including the PGA Championship and a World Golf Championship event, had seen his career flatline as anchored putting was outlawed starting Jan. 1, 2016. He lost his full swing, as well, but pieced it together under coach Darren May and held off Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff to advance to the TOUR Championship for the first time since 2013.

    Keopka, Rors, Rahm and JT but reserve the right to swap the JT pick if at any point during the tournament he gets paired with DeChambeau...

    The decided, delighted divining rod told me it loves the pressure it's feeling as this winds down,
    and suggests the following:

    Mick...er, Tommy Fleetwood
    Matt Kuchar
    Rory McIlroy
    Justin Rose

    Yep, decided to fade DJ the rest of the season after he burned me again at the WGC in Memphis. Hasn't done well at all this Summer.

    Had him and Adam Scott on my bench and couldn't pull the trigger on either. Maybe DJ is saving it for the President's Cup (and Scott is looking to enhance his spot with Big Ernie).

    Personally, I pick all the right people. Unfortunately, it's usually at the wrong time!

    Point reset question.
    With the change, I will admit I thought about how cool it will be for East Lake and didnt even think about how we will adjust scoring because it is so different. .

    The point reset is basically a stroke reset for the players. Whomever is the points leader Sunday starts Thursday at -10.

    So how do we incorporate that to our game.

    My first thought is award 1000 points for each stroke according to finish.
    For this example, @Bill From Tampa would start the Tour Championship with 10k extra points based on last weeks standings.

    I am open to suggestions, and we can adjust for 2020, but what does everyone think for next weeks scoring ?

    :D Or how about something really egalitarian...start with 10K for fsuTampa and spread them out or thin the points out as you move upwards? Kind of like a shot-gun start or scoring on 'Who's Line is it Anyway?"...;)...(man, who let this guy into the pool this year...??) Sorry, just a quick loss-of-consciousness moment there. NIA - I can use whatever points you throw my way.

    Why not do it like they do it? First starts at -10 then adds his scores to that. Second starts at -8 then add his scores to that. And so on. Use the score and not the points for the Championship?

    I thought I was in good shape, until JT lost his mind today.
    Every time i think about picking JT i think about his punchable face and pick someone else, like freaking DJ. Dang it

    JT was stupid yesterday. More rain coming this morning to soften the course up even more.

    I would say a similar approach to previous seasons can still be used in our game. IE - each person is assigned a point value at the beginning of the week and then golfers earn assigned point values based on their finish as always.

    But whatever you guys decide on the point reset is good with me...I will not factor into this year's title barring an unlikely comeback.
