Marc Leishman won the BMW Championship wire to wire after starting with a 62 and finishing at -23 to win by 5 and tie the tournament record. It did get interesting on the back nine as his lead shrunk to 2 shots after Justin Rose birdied 16. Leishman then birdied 15, 16, and 18 to close out the tournament like a true champion.
Rickie Fowler shot 67 and Jason Day shot 69 but they just didn’t find the extra gear needed to catch Leishman.
We now have the top 30 players for the Tour Championship.
Four players played well enough to work their way into the top 30: Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Sergio Garcia, and Tony Finau.
If four players moved up, that means four players were bumped out of the top 30. Louis Oosthuizen, Henrik Stenson, Brendan Steele, and Bill Haas lost their top 30 position and are going home.
