About the BMW Championship
The BMW Championship dates back to 1899 when it debuted as the
Western Open, making it the third-oldest tournament on the PGA TOUR
schedule, behind only the British Open and U.S. Open. BMW has
sponsored the tournament since 2007 when it became the penultimate
event of the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Playoffs. The BMW Championship
features a field of 70 players to determine the final 30 players for
the FedExCup finale at the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta.
All net proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars
Foundation, which grants full college scholarships to deserving young
caddies. Since BMW became title sponsor, the tournament has
contributed more than $16 million to the Evans Scholars Foundation.
The 2014 BMW Championship will be contested Sept. 4-7 at Cherry Hills
Country Club in Denver, Colo. This marks the first time since the 1985
PGA Championship that PGA TOUR players will compete at Cherry Hills
Country Club. The BMW Championship will be added to a long history of
championships hosted at Cherry Hills: 2012 U.S. Amateur, 2005 U.S.
Women’s Open, 1993 U.S. Senior Open, 1990 U.S. Amateur, 1985 PGA
Championship, 1983 U.S. Mid-Amateur, 1978 U.S. Open, 1976 USGA Senior
