2018 PGA: BMW Championship Betting Tips

September 5th 2018, 11:53am, By: admin

24-year-old Bryson DeChambeau became the first back to back winner on the PGA Tour in 2018 as he took out the Dell Technologies Championship over the long weekend in Boston. The win means he takes a dominant lead in the FedEx Cup standings and is guaranteed top spot on the standings when the points are reset after this weekend’s BMW Championship in Pennsylvania.

Just 70 players will advance from the 100 strong field that played in the Dell Technologies Championship, with some notable names in Matt Kuchar, J.B Holmes, Branden Grace and Jason Dufner missing the advancement cut.

The BMW Championship gets underway this Thursday night (AEST) from Aronimink Golf Club in Newton Square, Pennsylvania and we have a full preview and betting tips for the action below!

2018 BMW Championship Betting Tips

The Course

Aronimink Golf Club in Newton Square, PA was founded in 1896 and has hosted just one major in its long and illustrious history, the 1962 PGA Championship which was won by Gary Player. It is a 7,237 yard par 70, making it a pretty lengthy course as far as the 2018 PGA average goes. The course has not hosted a professional event since the 2010 and 2011 AT&T National and has since undergone some massive restorations.

Over the past few years, $4 million has been invested into the course in an attempt to return the course to the creation that original architect Donald Ross had envisioned back in the 1920s. The restoration’s biggest feature will be the addition of 176 new bunkers, meaning accuracy off the tee and into the green will be absolutely paramount this weekend. Larger greens were added to compensate for the heightened number of bunkers, so players should be aggressive with their approaches.

The Field

A field of just 70 will start the BMW Championship on Thursday night, led of course by Bryson DeChambeau who has been fantastic in the playoffs so far, winning both events by multiple strokes. He’ll have some major competition at the top of the standings as Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Tony Finau and Justin Thomas make up the rest of the current top five.

Marc Leishman currently sits in 22nd spot in the FedEx Cup Standings and was last year’s BMW Championship winner with a tournament record 261 -23 through four rounds. He’ll be dangerous again this year as will Justin Rose, who has pedigree at Arominink after winning the 2010 AT&T National with a score of -10.

Tips

Hard to look past the form of DeChambeau here. He has been almost unstoppable through the first two tournaments. Through eight rounds at the Northern Trust and Dell Tech Champs he has not been above par and has been in the 60s seven times. With his consistency at the moment and his accuracy off both tee and approach shot, a bet on him to finish in the top 10 here is good value.

As much as Bryson’s form has been super consistent, I have to side with Justin Rose here. He has dominated the course before and was fantastic at the Dell Tech Champs last weekend. He has a high ranking in both greens in regulation percentage throughout the season so far as well as driving accuracy.

He currently sits in the top 20 players on tour in shots gained off the tee, around the green and in putting and is 33rd overall in shots gained in approaches to the green. Has had a stellar season and I think this course suits his play style perfectly. Should be a lock to finish top ten here and a great chance to win.
