The Northern Trust 2021 had an unscheduled Monday finish, with Tony Finau winning the event in the playoffs. The FedExCup playoffs now move to the BMW Championship 2021. This is the second FedExCup playoff tournament, and it is all set to begin on August 26th. Moreover, the Caves Valley Golf Club, Owings Mills, Maryland, will host the event.

Only the top 70 players from the FedExCup points table will be playing at this event. And then, out of these 70, only the top 30 will make it to the final Tour Championship. Moreover, this is a no-cut event, so all the 70 players will have a chance to go into the weekend. BMW Championship is said to be one of the toughest events on the PGA Tour.

According to weather.com, the conditions for the first round are pretty decent. The prediction as of now is that it is going to be sunny with a slight chance of drizzles. However, there is no real threat like we had last week at the Northern Trust.
