Take part in one of the world's finest tournaments when one of the PGA TOUR FedExCup Playoffs comes to Wilmington. Wilmington Country Club's East Course will host the 2022 BMW Championship from August 16-21. To qualify for the season final, the top 70 golfers on the PGA TOUR will compete in the penultimate playoff event. The golf experience will be of the highest quality and will be filled with extreme tension. It is the Evans Scholars Foundation that benefit from all proceeds raised by the BMW Championship.

It is difficult to imagine a more high-quality golf tournament. The FedExCup will still be determined by only half of those teeing off at the end of the tournament, despite such a high-class field. Here are some tips on what you can expect when attending or watching this year’s event:

 

Know the Basics

 

For the uninitiated, this tournament is held every year in August and takes place at Wilmington Country Club's East Course, just outside of Delaware. This is one of the oldest golf tournaments in the world, as it began in 1932. It’s also a WGC event and a part of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup playoffs. There are also a few interesting facts about this event that make it even more interesting to attend or watch. First, it’s the only tournament in the playoffs that takes place on a course that is not owned by the PGA Tour. Second, the course was designed by Scotsman Hugh Wilson, who gifted the design to the Wilmington Country Club's East Course for free and offered to maintain the course for free for the rest of his life. And third, the tournament is named after BMW, the car company that has sponsored the event since 1996.

 

When is it?

 

This is the second event in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs, following the completion of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play tournament in Austin, TX. This is the oldest golf tournament in the world, as it began in 1932. The 2022 BMW Championship will take place at Wilmington Country Club's East Course in Delaware. This tournament is part of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs and is one of the most important events on the PGA Tour schedule.

 

Where to Watch and What to Expect

 

The 2022 BMW Championship will take place at Wilmington Country Club's East Course in Delaware. This is a very popular destination for golf fans, as it’s home to the 2020 PGA Championship, 2021 Presidents Cup, and 2022 Ryder Cup. Aronimink is about an hour outside of the city, so you’ll want to book transportation to and from the event in the city. The crowd at this event is always large and passionate. That’s because it’s one of the best events on the PGA Tour schedule, and Aronimink is a great host venue. Expect to see a mixture of die-hard golf fans and more casual golf followers.

 

The Players You Should Know

 

There will probably be a few different names at the top of the leaderboard at the 2022 BMW Championship, but the big star at this event is almost always Tiger Woods. While he hasn’t won at this event since 2007, he’s consistently been a top finisher in this tournament ever since. Phil Mickelson has also been a top finisher here and at other events in the playoffs and is a very popular pick to win. Other notable names to look out for are Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, and Justin Rose. After withdrawing from the U.S. Open, Martin Kaymer will be the first major player to be watched. The German played well in the LIV event at Centurion last week, but he withdrew from the U.S. Open because of an injury. He achieved his best outcome of the year, finishing inside the top-20, having missed just one cut out of four starts, with a three-over par score in England. His runner-up finish last year and 2008 win in Munich indicate he is comfortable on the course if he plays.

 

The Course and Conditions

 

This is one of the oldest golf tournaments in the world, as it began in 1932. The tournament is named after BMW, the car company that has sponsored the event since 1996. This tournament takes place on a par 72 course that’s 7,206 yards long. The course is known as one of the best and most challenging courses on the PGA Tour schedule, so you can expect some very long and difficult golf shots, especially on the first few holes. The course features a few water hazards and plenty of sand bunkers that will provide plenty of challenges and make scoring low tough. The greens are also very fast and tricky, so expect the course to play longer than the listed yardage due to the speed of the greens.

 

Conclusion

 

The BMW Championship is one of the final events on the PGA Tour schedule in the second half of the season. It is the last major event on the schedule, and it offers a huge purse, at least $9 million. It is an event that can move a player up the FedEx Cup standings, and it offers a nice break after a long season. This event has been a part of the PGA Tour for quite some time now but only recently became part of this official third major championship. And while it will no longer have that official designation next year when The Masters returns to its original location, it’s still one of the best tournaments to attend and watch live if you’re a big golf fan.
