2021 BMW Championship Sleeper Picks and Tournament Preview

BMW Championship LogoA strong field of 70 hits the BMW Championship this week and by this time you should almost know automatically who you will slot into your fantasy golf lineup. Course history is tough since the tournament moves around each year but as we have seen in past FedEx Cup playoffs…playing the hot hand is usually the best strategy to use in picking winners. An exciting PGA Tour season ends with this week’s BMW Championship and next week’s Tour Championship.

Because this is the last big weekend for golf with a decent sized field, our affiliate partner DraftKings is having many HUGE Fantasy Golf Contests for the BMW Championship - Most notably a PGA Birdie Contest.
