BMW Championship[edit]

The BMW Championship was played September 15–18, after a one-week break. All 70 players eligible to play in the event did so. There was no cut.

The top 30 players in FedEx Cup points after this event advanced to the Tour Championship and also earned spots in the 2012 Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, and (British) Open Championship.

Justin Rose won the event by two strokes over John Senden and moved to third in the rankings.[7] Three players who were outside the top 30 prior to the BMW Championship played their way into the Tour Championship: Justin Rose, John Senden, and Geoff Ogilvy.[8]

With the FedEx Cup points reset after the BMW Championship, all 30 remaining players have at least a mathematical chance to secure the season crown, and any of the top five players can claim the FedEx Cup with a win in the Tour Championship.
