2021 BMW Championship Recap
This year’s +1400 co-second choice Patrick Cantlay beat Bryson DeChambeau in a playoff to score the BMW title. Cantlay and DeChambeau headed to the playoff at -27. Third place went to Sungjae Im at -23. Rory McIlroy, this year’s favorite, finished fourth at -22. Jon Rahm, second choice along with Cantlay for the 2022 BMW Championship, finished a tied ninth at -18.
Top Pick to Win the 2022 BMW Championship
Jon Rahm’s -18 at last year’s BMW Championship should give his backers confidence. Rahm shot a ridiculous 64 first round in this last year. He followed the 64 up with a 66 second round. If not for back-to-back 70s in the third and fourth rounds, Jon may have won.
Not only that, but Rahm also played great at the St. Jude, shooting two rounds of 67, a 66 fourth round, and a 69 second round on his way to a -11. Rahm had struggled before the St Jude Championship.
The struggles, though, happened over links courses. Like most golf courses in the U.S., the South Course is a parkland course. Rahm will show his best, which could lead to a huge win.
Second Top Pick to Win the 2022 BMW Championship
What happened at TPC-Southwind last week? Patrick Cantlay had been playing great. He finished a tied fourth at the Genesis Scottish Open, a tied eighth at the Open Championship at St. Andrews, and a tied second at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
But at the St. Jude Championship last week, Cantlay imploded. He finished a tied fifty-seventh after shooting 67-68-71-72. Cantlay, no doubt, can bounce back at Wilmington Country Club’s South Course this week.
Patrick dominated his opponents in 2021. A similar domination may not be possible, but don’t be surprised if Cantlay ends up in the final pairing on Sunday.
Third Top Pick to Win the 2022 BMW Championship
After back-to-back victories at the 3M Open and the Rocket Mortgage Classic, many expected Finau to take a backward step at the St. Jude. He didn’t. Tony Finau had a chance to win his third straight PGA Tournament last Sunday.
Finau came up short finishing a tied fifth, but he didn’t shoot a single round above 69 and clocked a 64 first round. Tony has a real shot of winning three of the last four PGA Tournaments.
Top Underdog Pick to Win the 2022 BMW Championship
At the 2021 BMW Championship, Viktor Hovland shot a -15 to finish a tied seventeenth. The performance wasn’t bad. Last week, Hovland played well on his way to a tied twentieth. There’s a chance Hovland improves off the FedEx St. Jude Championship effort.
Since missing two straight cuts, at the Scottish Open and U.S. Open, Hovland picked up his game at St. Andrews, finishing a tied fourth. The top underdog is trending up, which means Viktor Hovland is well worth a look at the odds.
