Golf Rankings for BMW Championship
Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #27
A T27 at TPC Boston halted a streak of four consecutive top-10s for Furyk. Prior to that run he hadn’t put together two straight top-10s since the end of last season. The resurgent Furyk is now 19th in scoring average and remains extremely accurate off the tee.
Johnson won the BMW back in 2010 and finished T6 last year, but both of those results came at Cog Hill. D.J. began the postseason by missing the cut in The Barclays and followed it up with a mediocre T27 result at TPC Boston. Johnson is fifth in driving distance, but just 36th in All-Around Ranking.
Webb Simpson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #19
Simpson put an end to his rash of inconsistent play with a string of four consecutive top-25s in August. However, he just stumbled with a T53 at TPC Boston. The recent boost in play has Simpson 14th in scoring average and 24th in All-Around Ranking.
Graham Delaet [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #118
After missing two straight cuts, Delaet has caught fire with a T2 and solo third performance to open postseason play. Prior to those missteps he had made nine consecutive cuts with six finishes of 26th or better. Delaet is first in total driving and 23rd in All-Around Ranking.
Zach Johnson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #26
Johnson had finished inside the top 10 in five consecutive starts prior to a T27 at TPC Boston. That run contains two majors, so the resurgence looks quite real. Due to a previously quiet season, Z.J. is just 35th in scoring average and 55th in All-Around Ranking.
Hunter Mahan [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #22
Mahan has put together a rather lackluster start to the postseason with a T25 and T13. Mahan is good for ninth in total driving, but just 45th in All-Around Ranking.
Sergio Garcia [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #17
After a pleasant start to the season, Garcia has cooled off considerably playing on Tour over the summer. He’s now back on the radar, though, following a T4 at TPC Boston. Sergio is good for eighth in scoring average and 10th in All-Around Ranking.
Charl Schwartzel [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #16
Over his last eight starts, Schwartzel has only fallen outside of the top 25 once. However, he hasn’t managed a top 15 since July. Schwartzel is second in birdie average and seventh in scoring average.
Rickie Fowler [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #32
Fowler has finished 21st or better in six of his last eight starts, including a T9 at The Barclays. He’s 24th in scoring average and 28th in All-Around Ranking.
Castro has missed a ridiculous amount of cuts this season, but owns four top-25s over his last five - including a T9 at TPC Boston. If you are looking deep, forget the first seven months and ride the hot hand.
Lee Westwood [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #11
Westwood has only missed one cut in 17 stroke play events this season while playing on Tour. However, he’s finished outside of the top 20 in four straight appearances. Westwood is currently 16th in scoring average.
Luke Donald [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #3
It has been a disappointing season for Donald. Prior to finishing T41 in each of the first two postseason tournaments, he missed three of four cuts. Donald is a solid 17th in scoring average, but 137th in total driving and 66th in All-Around Ranking.
