Conway Farms GC – Lake Forest, Il

Sportsbook.ag Odds to win the Tournament

The PGA Tour is heading to Conway Farms Golf Club, which will be hosting the BMW Championship beginning on Thursday. This event was introduced in 2007 and will be played on a course that is 7,149 yards in total. Only the top 70 PGA Tour golfers will be in attendance and that field includes Billy Horschel, who beat Bubba Watson by two strokes just a year ago. Tiger Woods, who will not be playing in this year’s tournament, has won the BMW Championship twice and his score of -22 in 2007 is the best anybody has ever shot at this event. Rory McIlroy is the only other player to shoot -20 or better and he did so when he won in 2012.

Conway Farms Golf Club has hosted this tournament just once since it was introduced and that was back in 2013, when Zach Johnson was victorious with a score of -16. The group of other players that have won this event and will be playing on Thursday includes Justin Rose and Dustin Johnson. Let’s now take a look at some guys that could be coming away with a victory when all is settled on Sunday:

Henrik Stenson (+950)- Stenson enters this tournament in ridiculous form, finishing in second place at each of the past two tournaments. He is a combined -27 in his past 146 holes and will be looking to break through for a victory at the BMW Championship. Stenson’s strength is in his ability to hit the irons and that should really help him on this course. His 74.25% greens in regulation percentage is the best on tour and he’s not too shabby when he gets there either, as his .445 strokes gained putting average is 21st on the tour. At +950, Stenson is a very good pick to win his first tournament of the year this weekend.

Rickie Fowler (+1400) - The knock on Fowler is that he has never won a major, but he’s done pretty well at other big tournaments in his career. Fowler won the Players Championship this season and is the guy that beat Stenson at the Deutsche Bank Championship just over a week ago. He has not been very consistent this season, but two tournament victories and two other top-five finishes show that Fowler is a force when he’s on. At +1400, it’s a good time to back Fowler given the way he looked in the most recent playoff event.

Zach Johnson (+1800) - As mentioned earlier, Johnson won this tournament the last time it was played at Conway Farms. He is going to be quite comfortable when he tees off on Thursday and has been playing very well as of late too. Johnson won the Open Championship on Jul. 16 and has another three top-10 finishes in his past 10 tournaments played. To be getting these odds on somebody who has had the success that Johnson has had recently is rare. Putting a unit or two on him is definitely something that should be considered.

Nick Watney (+18000) - Watney has had a very underwhelming year and has struggled mightily as of late. He has finished outside of the top-30 in 10 straight tournaments, but he does have one thing going for him. Watney was right there with Zach Johnson in 2013, shooting a -14 and finishing two strokes behind in his quest to come up with a victory in this tournament. This hasn’t been a completely lost year for the golfer either, finishing second at Pebble Beach in February and tying for 10th at the Byron Nelson tournament on May 28.

Brian Harman (+21000) - Harman has put together a nice run recently, finishing tied for 30th at The Barclays and tied for 12th at the Deutsche Bank Championship last tournament. Harman isn’t great at any one thing, but he’s solid off the tee and on the green. He has a driving accuracy percentage of 64.04%, which ranks 62nd on the Tour. He also gains .301 strokes putting, which is good for 44th on the Tour. Harman also has a knack for coming up with big shots, as evidenced by his eight eagles on the year. At this price, he’s worth throwing a small bet on.
