The BMW Championship is the third of four tournaments that comprise the FedEx Cup, the championship for the PGA Tour. Though a more recent development in PGA play, the FedEx Cup is sought by the nation's top golfers for the significant payout the winner receives. Entry to this round is limited to the top 70 FedEx Cup point leaders. The top 30 point leaders at the end of the BMW Championship go on to The Tour Championship where the FedEx Cup is awarded to the top player. The BMW Championship replaced the Western Open on the PGA Calandar, a tournament that had been held since 1899. The Western Open was run by the Western Golf Association, an organization that continues to run the BMW Championship to this day. The BMW Championship's place in the FedEx Cup has made it one of the most important tournaments on the PGA Tour. Former winners of the BMW Championship include Tiger Woodes, Rory McIlroy, and Dustin Johnson. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for BMW Championship Tickets.
