NOT Twofer Tuesday: BMW Championship

Twofer Tuesday towels off, dons dry clothes and shoes, heads for Baltimore County, Maryland and shows up on Wednesday for the BMW Championship.

Defending champion Jon Rahm

In many ways the big news for the BMW is its new venue. Caves Valley Golf Club has hosted the US Senior Open, Constellation Senior PLAYERS Championship, and the LPGA's first International Crown, but this is its first time hosting a PGA Tour event. A par-72 measuring over 7500 yards, it's been lengthened, rebunkered and 'roughed up.' With very little time to scout the course, it should give the field a nice challenge.

As for my picks, I decided last week -- even before Henri showed up -- that I would stick with last week's picks through the Tour Championship as long as they were still in the running. Since they are 10th and 13th respectively in the FedExCup Points List (and therefore unlikely to WD) I'm sticking with Abraham Ancer and Xander Schauffele.

GC's live coverage picks up Thursday at 3pm ET while PGA TOUR LIVE begins streaming at 7am ET. Hopefully we'll see drier weather this week and a course that puts up more of a fight.
