Golf Rankings for BMW Championship
Tiger Woods [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #43
Woods is a two-time winner at the BMW Championship, claiming victory at Cog Hill in the inaugural 2007 event and again in 2009. However, the event shifts to Conway Farms Golf Club this year. Tiger has won five times in a dozen stroke play events this season, but has fallen outside of the top 30 in four of his last seven. Despite the hiccups, Woods is still first in both scoring average and All-Around Ranking.
Henrik Stenson [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #2
No player is playing better than Stenson is right now. He's coming off a victory in the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston to give him four podium finishes over his last five appearances. That outstanding run has allowed Stenson to jump 24 spots on the OWGR chart and 127 positions ahead of where he stood one year ago. Stenson is now fifth in scoring average and fourth in total driving.
Adam Scott [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #3
Despite ending a streak of four consecutive results inside the top 15, Scott finished T53 at TPC Boston (even though he played well in the middle two rounds). During the aforementioned run, Scott racked up three top-fives highlighted by a victory in The Barclays. Scott is currently fourth in scoring average and seventh in All-Around Ranking.
Phil Mickelson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #16
Mickelson finished the opening round of play at TPC Boston with a share of first, but dropped to a T41 finish. Lefty has been hot and cold throughout the season, but a worthy play thanks to six podium finishes in 19 starts. Mickelson is first in birdie average and second in strokes gained-putting.
Steve Stricker [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #46
Stricker has only played five events since mid-June, but they've all been finishes of 12th or better. At TPC Boston he notched his third solo second of the year. Stricker has played just enough rounds to qualify for second in both scoring average and All-Around Ranking.
Jordan Spieth [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #9
Since missing the cut at the PGA Championship, Spieth has finished solo second at Sedgefield then T19 and T4 in the postseason. The rookie is 11th in scoring average, seventh in total driving and third in All-Around Ranking.
Justin Rose [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #5
Rose has collected four finishes inside the top 20 in his six starts after winning the U.S. Open. He opened the FedExCup Playoffs with a share of second in The Barclays and a T16 at TPC Boston. Rose won this event in 2011 at Cog Hill. He is currently third in scoring average, second in total driving and sixth in All-Around Ranking.
Matt Kuchar [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #11
A T4 showing at TPC Boston extended Kuchar's streak of 25 consecutive cuts, the longest active string on Tour. He hasn't finished outside of the top 30 in his last nine with four top-fives. Kuchar is currently sixth in scoring average.
Jason Dufner [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #36
It was looking like a very mediocre season for Dufner until August. He opened the month with a T4 at Firestone and won the PGA Championship the following week. Duff Man cooled down at The Barclays, but came right back with a T9 at TPC Boston. Dufner is up to 13th in scoring average.
Rory McIlroy [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #1
McIlroy won this event last year when it was hosted at Crooked Stick. After hitting some bumps, he put together a solid August campaign by making all four cuts with a pair of top-20s. It isn't the level of play many have expected, but McIlroy is coming back around when it matters most.
Jason Day [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #8
Day has been rock solid all season and heads to Conway with three straight top-25s. He's 12th in scoring average and 18th in All-Around Ranking. Day hasn't managed a top-40 in his three BMW appearances, so moving away from Cog Hill is a welcome change.
Keegan Bradley [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #31
Bradley enters this week having made seven straight cuts with five top-20s. His lone top-10 during that time was a T2 at Firestone. Bradley is 10th in scoring average, third in total driving and fourth in All-Around Ranking.
