The 2019 FedEx Cup Playoffs roll on this weekend with the BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club in Illinois.
Medinah hasn’t hosted a tournament since the 2012 Ryder Cup, so there’s limited data on the course but what we do know is that it plays long, measuring over 7,600 yards for a par 72.
Outside of the length, tree-lined fairways and a few strategically placed water hazards give golfers something to think about. Despite being long, it’s not a course where the players can just bomb and gouge. Some precision is required off the tee.
Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy are tied atop the odds at 8-1 with Jon Rahm (10-1), Dustin Johnson (14-1) and Justin Thomas (14-1) right behind them.
