BMW Championship prize money: How much can Koepka, McIlroy, Woods win?

0


The top 70 players in the FedExCup standings are ready tee it up at the BMW Championship.

The season-ending Tour Championship takes place next week as those competing look to break into the top 30.

Brooks Koepka arrives as the FedExCup leader with Northern Trust champion Patrick Reed just behind.

Rory McIlroy occupies third spot after registering 13 top-10 finishes from 17 PGA Tour starts this year.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, believes he is fit for action again after withdrawing from last week’s Northern Trust mid-tournament.

The 15-time major winner struggled to an opening-round 75 at Liberty National before pulling out with an ‘oblique strain’.

Asked how he was feeling ahead of the BMW Championship, Woods replied: “Yeah, way better.

“It was nice to take those days off. I had to just let it calm down and get a bunch of treatment on it, and it feels so much better.”

BMW Championship prize money

Only 30 players will advance to East Lake’s Tour Championship next week.

But all 70 competitors have the opportunity to collect some decent prize money in the BMW Championship as there is no 36-hole cut at Medinah.

The total purse for the FedEx Cup play-off event stands at $9.25million (£7.65m).

The winner will take home an impressive $1.665m (£1.38m), while the runner-up will collect $999,000 (£826,000).

The full prize money breakdown for the BMW Championship can be found below ($1 = £0.83).
