Viewer’s guide: 2019 BMW Championship tee times, TV schedule and purse

August 13, 2019

The second leg of the 2019 FedEx Cup Playoffs kicks off this week with the BMW Championship at Medinah. You can find a full BMW Championship viewer’s guide below, with tee times, purse info, and everything else you need to know before the tournament begins.

BMW Championship preview

With one playoff event in the rearview, one thing remains unchanged. Everyone is still chasing Brooks Koepka. Koepka will begin the BMW Championship in first place once again. But there’s a new player in the second spot: Patrick Reed. Reed stormed to his first victory since the 2018 Masters last week at Liberty National. The win vaulted him into prime position to knock off Koepka

But much of the focus will be on the players at the other end of the standings. The Top 70 players in the FedEx Cup standings earned the right to compete at Medinah this week, but only 30 will make it into the field next week at the Tour Championship. That means anyone not in the Top 10 will be fighting to keep their seasons alive.

Full 2019 BMW Championship tee times for the first and second rounds can be found below, in addition to the event’s purse and TV schedule.
