BMW Championship - 2021

The Bavarian Motor Works Championship is up next at Caves Valley GC.  It's the only stop on tour where BMW owners can get special preferred parking (don't show up in your Tesla), and access the exclusive BMW owners pavilion - using your key FOB for access 😄. We're now down to the top 70 in route to the FedEx Cup.  Have you purchased tickets to one of the 5 holes with sky boxes?  If not, don't bother, they are sold out... quite the contrast to last years event.

Will Rham drop another 66 foot putt for this years win?  Will we see one of the guys barely hanging on to the field find overdrive and vault himself up the standings?  Who are you picking to win this week?

The putter that sealed Jon Rahm's dramatic BMW Championship win

Going to be volunteering this week at the BMW beyond excited to walk on a course that I never heard of until last year. And I went to school a few minutes away from the course.

I definitely think it would be more entertaining if it was the top 70.  No cut.

But… I’m pulling for Rahmbo.  Moving to Callaway has worked out extremely well for him.

I hate to inform you guys, but me rooting against Koepka means he'll likely win it wire to wire.

Tiger is the GOAT, change my mind.

Well. I’m a dummy.  I meant the whole playoffs 70 in the field.

Then we couldn't  hear the endless ramblings about how if X player makes this putt they will be in and Y will be out.

Also, none of the announcers have played a public course it seems.  They are always talking about the height of the rough.  I think they cut it here once a summer.  (Not really) but it is thick and gnarly the majority of the summer.

I’m not enthralled with the courses being used. I’d like to see greater variety - oh well such is life

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I often say that when I see a course on TV. But having walked this course about a dozen times, I can tell you it truly is a spectacular course and the elevation changes really don’t shoe on TV.  
 

Too bad on the soft conditions.  I suspected the pros would score well here, but not like this.  I thought perhaps -16 or so to win.  But LCP will let them eat a course up.

Love him or hate him.  Bryson is something to watch when he’s on.  Back to Back eagles doesn’t happen often.  -5 after 5.  59 watch begins avian 😎

Also. Sure the soft conditions are contributing to the low scores.   But these guys putters are absolutely on 🔥🔥🔥 I mean Rory has made over 120 feet of putts in the first 5 holes.   Bryson rolling in 2 putts over 30 feet, one from 53, Anser, IM and Cantlay all dropping bombs. DJ has made a couple 15 to 20 footers.    And that’s just leaders.  
 

Honestly haven’t seen putting like this in a long time.

I cannot recall an event where putting prowess, across the field, was as good.  They are going in from downtown all over the course. It must look like a paint bucket.
