The PGA TOUR presents the 2022 BMW Championship from Wilmington Country Club in Wilmington, Delaware. The tournament is the second leg of the FedExCup with a field of players ranked in the top-70 scheduled to participate. The 2022 BMW Championship will be held from August 18-21.

Patrick Cantlay won last year’s BMW Championship after outlasting Bryson DeChambeau on a six-hole playoff at Cave Valley. Both playoffs finished the four-day event with a 27-under-par score. Cantlay is a +1400 bet to repeat on DraftKings Sportsbook, making him one of the big favorites. DeChambeau is no longer on the PGA TOUR.

The weather in Wilmington looks good for golf. Mostly mild, with a slight chance of rain late Sunday.
