The BMW Championship is the third of four events in the FedExCup Playoffs and determines the final field of 30 for the TOUR Championship at East Lake in Georgia. The BMW Championship took place at Conway Farms Golf Course in Lake Forest, IL. This year, it was Australian Marc Leishman, who saw off a late charge from England’s Justin Rose, to win the BMW Championship by five shots. Watch highlights from the final round above.
Leishman’s lead was twice cut to two shots by Rose, before he eventually finished 23 under, five clear of the Englishman and American Rickie Fowler, who both finished T2. Rose shot a six-under 65 but a 67 from Leishman was enough to secure his third PGA Tour title in the penultimate leg of the FedEx Cup play-offs. They have both secured spots in the season-ending Tour Championship, but defending champion Rory McIlroy’s faint FedEx Cup hopes, which rested on a top-four spot, are over.
