UPDATE: Patrick Cantlay won the BMW Championship on the sixth hole of a playoff against Bryson DeChambeau. Cantlay claims the $1,710,000 top prize and DeChambeau claims the $1,026,000 second place prize money. Sungjae Im finished in third ($646,000), Rory McIlroy finished fourth ($456,000), and Erik van Rooyen finished fifth ($380,000).

The 2021 BMW Championship is headed into the final round on Sunday with the field battling for the 30 entry spots at next week’s TOUR Championship. The top 70 golfers in the FedExCup Playoffs faced off this weekend in Owings Mills, MD, and the top 30 following Sunday’s final round will meet in Atlanta, GA for the season-ending tournament and a $15 million first prize.

There’s a lot at stake with $15 million to next week’s winner, but there is still prize money to be had in this weekend’s BMW Championship. The tournament features a $9.5 million prize pool and first place takes home $1,710,000. There’s a good chance the winner of the tournament will be in first place heading into next week’s TOUR Championship, but this week’s prize money is nothing to sneeze at.

Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Cantlay enter the final round tied for first place at -21. Sungjae Im follows at -18, and then there is a four-way tie for fourth at -17 between Abraham Ancer, Rory McIlroy, Sam Burns, and Sergio Garcia.
