Leishman fends off Rose challenge to win BMW Championship — Golf

Something to keep in mind as your watch, listen to and/or read about the tournament, since Tiger Woods won the FedExCup without winning the TOUR Championship in 2009, which was the inaugural year of the first iteration of the current points structure, every champion at East Lake also captured the FedExCup. Currently sitting third in the FedEx Cup standings, he controls his own destiny at the Tour Championship this week. Perhaps a return to familiar bermuda greens will help him snap out of this funk. The PGA stated that it is trying to get a new contract with Quicken Loans for sponsorship purposes. Jutanugarn and New Zealand's Lydia Ko both missed out on the playoff as they each bogeyed the final hole to finish at 8-under for the tournament. There are 49 events on the schedule with $363 million in prize money up for grabs.

We were on the mark with Leishman last week; hope you were listening.
