Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Patrick Cantlay outlasts Bryson DeChambeau in historic win at BMW Championship

Cantlay ($9,200; 159 DKFP) and DeChambeau ($9,300; 160 DKFP) started and finished Sunday tied, so the BMW Championship became the 14th event this season to require extra holes to decide the winner. It took until the sixth playoff hole before Cantlay was able to get the win, claiming his third win of the season and fifth of his PGA career. He shot a six-under to finish -27 for the week and move to the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings heading into next week’s TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP, where he’ll start with a two-shot lead. It was a week of historically low scoring, with -27 setting the record for the lowest score in the 118-year history of the BMW Championship, and every single player in the 69-man field finishing under par. — Zach Thompson

Erik van Rooyen, Sergio Garcia advance to the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

Even though the two leaders ran away from the field early at the BMW Championship, there was still plenty of drama in the rest of the field as players jockeyed to get into the top 30 of the FedEx Cup standings and move on the the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP next week. Erik van Rooyen ($7,500; 121 DKFP) shot a seven-under to finish in the top five and climbed into the top 30 with Sergio Garcia ($7,600; 122.5 DKFP), who also advanced after shooting a three-under. Charley Hoffman ($7,000; 77 DKFP) and Max Homa ($6,400; 64.0 DKFP) dropped out of the top 30 with Patrick Reed squeaking in at No. 30. K.H. Lee ($6,000; 108 DKFP) finished 31st in the standings, after climbing into the top 30 before hitting it out of bounds and bogeying his final hole. — Zach Thompson


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Bryson DeChambeau joined atop BMW Championship leaderboard by Patrick Cantlay

DeChambeau ($9,300; 136.5 DKFP) followed up his career-best round of 60 on Friday with yet another solid score of 67 to keep him atop the leaderboard at the BMW Championship. He carded two eagles, two bogeys and a double bogey in what was a typically volatile round, and that was good enough to get him to -21 and fend off plenty of great competition. One man he couldn’t quite shake was Cantlay ($9,200; 127 DKFP), who fired a six-under 66 to get to -21 and jump from second into a tie for first place heading into Sunday’s final round. Cantlay actually was at -22 heading into 18 after an eagle and five birdies, but he carded his first bogey of the day on the final hole. Sungjae Im ($8,000; 100 DKFP) is alone in third. — Kenny Ducey

Rory McIlroy, Sam Burns move into contention at BMW Championship

McIlroy ($9,400; 95.5 DKFP) and Burns ($8,300; 97.5 DKFP) began the day in a tie for eighth place. When it was all said and done on Saturday, they found themselves among those tied for fourth. Both fired seven-under rounds of 65, bringing them to within four of the leaders at -17 for the BMW Championship. McIlroy carded his first bogey-free round of the tournament and poured in seven birdies while Burns bogeyed 13 after a stellar five-under front nine. Louis Oosthuizen ($9,600; 65 DKFP) actually carded the low round of the day with an eight-under 64, but he sits all the way back at -7 in a tie for 32nd. — Kenny Ducey


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Bryson DeChambeau shoots career-low Friday at BMW Championship

DeChambeau ($9,300; 100.5 DKFP) had a round for the ages Friday at the BMW Championship, carding a career-low 12-under par 60 at Caves Valley GC. On top of eight birdies, the bomber converted two eagles during the second round and was extremely close to becoming the 13th player in PGA history to break 60, missing a short six-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. After this magnificent round, DeChambeau now leads the event at -16. Only one shot back is Patrick Cantlay ($9,200; 86 DKFP), who also made some serious noise Friday. The 29-year-old racked up 10 birdies, including four in a row on the back nine, and only had one bogey on his scorecard. In DraftKings $1 Million Flop Shot tournament, Cantlay and DeChambeau were among the top-10 most owned golfers of the week. — Alex Hunter

Jon Rahm trails by one stroke after suspension of second round of BMW Championship

Rahm ($11,700) entered the second round of the BMW Championship in a tie for first place, but he currently trails Bryson DeChambeau ($9,300) by one stroke. That said, Rahm still has three holes to play in the second round, which was suspended on Friday. He’ll finish up tomorrow, so he’ll have a chance to regain the lead before the start of the third round. Patrick Cantlay ($9,200) is tied with Rahm at 15-under-par, but like DeChambeau, he was able to complete his second round. All three golfers were popular DFS choices this week, with Rahm and DeChambeau owning the highest ownerships in the field. Rahm remains the betting favorite at +150 on DraftKings Sportsbook, but DeChambeau (+250) and Cantlay (+400) aren’t far behind. — Matt LaMarca


Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm among first-round leaders at BMW Championship

The second leg of the PGA TOUR playoffs are underway at the BMW Championships, and there are a couple of familiar names atop the leaderboard. McIlroy ($9,400; 63 DKFP) and Rahm ($11,700; 65 DKFP) both have a share of the lead after shooting eight-under rounds of 64, and they are tied with Sam Burns ($8,300; 65 DKFP), who had an identical score. Rahm and Burns had the slightly better fantasy days, shooting bogey-free rounds and earning the birdie streak bonuses. McIlroy mixed in a bogey on 13 but responded with an eagle on 16 to get back to -8. Sergio Garcia ($7,600; 48.5 DKFP) is all alone in fourth place at -7 while Patrick Cantlay ($9,200; 44 DKFP) is among a group tied at -6. — Kenny Ducey

Mixed first-round results for highest-rostered golfers at BMW Championship

Entering the BMW Championship, Jon Rahm ($11,700; 65 DKFP) was the heavy favorite. He showed why on the first day as he shot an eight-under 64 to finish tied for first place with Sam Burns ($8,300; 65 DKFP) and Rory McIlroy ($9,400; 63 DKFP). In the $1M Flop Shot, 29.06% have rostered Rahm, and DraftKings Sportsbook has him as the favorite to win it all at +275. Bryson DeChambeau ($9,300; 28.5 DKFP) is rostered by 23.97% of the field, and he shot a four-under 68 to finish T19. DeChambeau notched seven birdies but bogeyed three times. DraftKings Sportsbook has him at +2200 to win it all. — Stan Son
