Those players looking at golf odds should know that the BMW Championship is the third leg in the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup. Those looking at golf odds see that the BMW Championship will have the top 70 players in the world competing for the final spots in the TOUR Championship and a $10 million dollar prize.
The golf odds will have Tiger Woods as the favorite followed by Phil Mickelson. Golf odds players know that the BMW Championship is being played for the first time on the PGA Tour. Golf odds players know that it replaces the Western Open, which was played from 1899 to 2006. Those looking at golf odds may want to know that the BMW Championship will go on a rotation of courses starting at Cog Hill Country Club in Lemont, Illinois followed by Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana and Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis Missouri.
Those looking at golf odds see that the BMW Championship takes place from September 6th through September 9th and is the tournament that will determine the final 30 spots for the Tour Championship. Golf odds players know that the top 70 players following the Deutsche Bank Championship qualify for the BMW Championship. Golf odds players see that the Top 30 FedEx Cup points leaders following the BMW Championship advance to the Tour Championship which is played September 13th through the 16th.

One player in the top 70 that will not be part of the golf odds is Padrig Harrington.

Golf betting fans know it is unlikely he will make the Tour Championship without playing.
The golf odds for the BMW Championship should be interesting with just 70 players making the tournament. The golf betting favorite, as usual, will be Tiger Woods but Mickelson is playing better and will get a lot of play on the golf odds board. Other players that should make an impact in golf betting for the week are Rory Sabbatini and perhaps Steve Stricker.
