Golf Rankings for BMW Championship
Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #7
Last week’s T13 at TPC Boston is only Furyk’s second top-30 in his last eight starts. On the season, he’s good for fifth in both driving accuracy percentage and scoring average.
Ian Poulter [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #27
Poulter had impressive finishes at both St. Annes and the PGA Championship, but has finished outside of the top 35 in each of the postseason tournaments thus far.
Charl Schwartzel [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #25
With only one top-15 in his last dozen starts, time is running out for Schwartzel to prove himself as a top flight international player. He's a name to monitor, but probably not a wise start.
Ernie Els [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #60
Since winning at St. Annes, Els had finished outside of the top 40 in four straight starts until finishing T26 at TPC Boston.
Jeff Overton [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #190
Overton has missed two of his last four cuts, but finished T7 last week at TPC Boston.
Kevin Stadler [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #72
So far, so good for Stadler this postseason. After missing four straight cuts Stadler has now finished T10 the last two weeks and 11th or better in three of his last four. The music could stop at anytime, but for now Stadler is a worthy gamble.
