Koepka has drive for BMW glory

The remaining 70 players in the FedEx Cup are set to battle it out at this week’s BMW Championship for the riches on offer and the right to advance to the season’s finale. Only 30 will stay standing on Sunday and a familiar name is tipped to claim the spoils.

Koepka to win @ 8/1

The sight of Medinah will send shivers down the spine of the Americans who were on the wrong end of one of the greatest European Ryder Cup comebacks seven years ago.

Termed the ‘Miracle at Medinah’, Jose Maria Olazabel’s 12 came back from the brink of defeat to claim the trophy in 2012.

Brooks Koepka was not in the line-up on that occasion but looks set to be an ever-present for Team USA in the future.

His focus will be on winning the penultimate FedEx Cup play-off event in Illinois and he has all the tools to do well.

The Florida resident rarely seems to have a bad week these days and was in the winner’s circle at the recent WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational before finishing 30th at last week’s Northern Trust.

Medinah should suit him and, with the business end of the season approaching, it would be no surprise to see the 29-year-old’s name near the top of the leaderboard on Sunday.

Rose to win @ 16/1

If anyone will benefit from the memory of that Ryder Cup, it will be England’s Justin Rose, who took down Phil Mickelson in the singles to earn Europe a vital point.

Now ranked fourth in the world, the 39-year-old has become a top-10 machine, with 18 recorded across the past two years in addition to three wins.

He is a former winner of this event, albeit on a different course, and has a liking for the play-offs, with two second-place finishes in 2018 en route to scooping the overall prize.

Adam Scott to be top Australia at 11/10 might be worth a look as he seems to be on the way back after a relatively poor couple of years.

Back in the world’s top 20, the 2013 Masters champion is trending in the right direction after a fifth-place finish at last week’s Northern Trust.

He has not won since 2016 but has two runner-up results on his CV this year, including at the Memorial.

If his putter is working, Scott should be a factor and he only has Jason Day and Marc Leishman to contend with in this market.
