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

September 5, 2018

The PGA Tour heads to Aronimink Golf Club this week for BMW Championship, the third leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Bryson DeChambeau will be looking for his third-straight playoff win. But Tiger Woods will also be in the field, hungry to return to the winner’s circle.

Woods, who was chosen as a Ryder Cup captain’s pick Tuesday night, will play the first two rounds alongside fan favorites Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth. They tee off for the first round at 11:30 a.m. ET off the 10th tee. All three are currently ranked in the 20s. If they want to make the Tour Championship field, they will need to play well enough to remain in the top 30.

Dechambeau is grouped with Justin Rose and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who will immediately follow the Tiger grouping at 11:41 a.m.

Other notable BMW Championship tee times for Thursday include Phil Mickelson (11:52 a.m.), as well as the trio of Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas and Tony Finau (12:47 p.m.)
