After last week’s thrilling FedEx St. Jude Championship, the top 50 players left in the FedEx Cup rankings are preparing for the final tournament before the Tour Championship next weekend. In total, 20 players were dumped out of contention last weekend which means those competing this weekend truly are the cream of the crop from the previous 12 months.
Due to the reduced field, there are a few changes in places when compared to previous PGA Tour events. For starters, there will not be a cut line at the halfway stage of the tournament meaning all 50 players will play in all four rounds around Olympia Fields in Illinois. Secondly, quadruple points will be on offer meaning every player has a chance of making it through to next week’s Tour Championship.
With an exciting week in store, many people around the world will be keen on tuning in. Can Jon Rahm return to form? Can Lucas Glover make it three wins on the bounce? The only way to find out is by watching all four rounds and if you want to know, then you have come to the right place. Here is everything you need to know.

How to watch the BMW Championship on TV?
Fans in the UK and US will be able to watch the BMW Championship, however, the methods will be different depending on your location. Here is what you need to know.
BMW Championship UK TV schedule
Golf fans in the UK will be able to watch all four rounds of golf via Sky Sports Golf. The channel has the exclusive broadcasting rights in the United Kingdom for every PGA Tour event. In order to access Sky Sports Golf, fans will need to subscribe to Sky Sports.
On Thursday and Friday, their live coverage will begin at 18:00 UK time and on Saturday they will start slightly later at 18:30. On Sunday, however, their coverage will begin earlier at 16:30 where fans will be able to enjoy an extended build-up.
BMW Championship US TV schedule
The TV schedule in the US is different to the UK and unfortunately, American fans won’t be able to enjoy as much live golf. The coverage will be shared between Golf Channel and CBS with Golf Channel carrying the live coverage on the opening two days from 14:00 – 18:00 Eastern time.
On Saturday, Golf Channel will open up with live coverage from 13:00 – 15:00 before CBS take over for the rest of the afternoon until 18:00. On Sunday, Golf Channel will begin their live coverage slightly earlier at 12:00 and go off air at 14:00. CBS will then take over until the final ball is putted on the 18th.
How to stream the BMW Championship?
The streaming coverage in the UK of the BMW Championship will take place on SkyGo via Sky Sports Golf. Alternatively, fans do have the option to buy a Now TV pass to gain streaming access to Sky Sports Golf. As things stand, a day pass on Now TV costs £11.98 while a month pass costs £26.
For fans in the USA, the streaming options are better than the TV options in that you won’t miss a single shot via stream. Fans can tune in to ESPN+ from 9 am every day with live coverage lasting the entire day.
