For the 2014 BMW Championship the top-70 players in the FedEx Cup standings will head to Englewood, Colorado at Cherry Hills Country Club.

The 2014 BMW Championship will definitely be an event that many look forward to watching. The implications on the line would be enough to tune in, because this is the final stage to qualify for the Tour Championship. More than half of the field will be eliminated from the running of the FedEx Cup by the end of the tournament. Combine this with the fact that it will be played at Cherry Hills, and the winner of the tournament will have supplanted themselves in the history of the winners at this special venue.
All of the 2014 BMW Championship action can be seen on Golf Channel Thursday and Friday. NBC comes in on the weekend to take it the rest of the way. The top-30 players will advance to the Tour Championship in Atlanta.
Cherry Hills CC, Englewood, Colorado
Complete with a championship golf course, a 9-hole par-3 course, and a number of tennis courts and tools, the Cherry Hills Country Club is surely the pinnacle of luxury—yet for golf enthusiasts, it is the club's position as a PGA hosting venue that warrants the most attention. Indeed, the Colorado club offers a full, par-72 course that currently hosts the annual BMW Championship. The course was designed by William Flynn in the mid-20s.
And what a course it is! It surpasses 7,466 yards in length, yet it plays much shorter than that; the average elevation here is some 5,300 feet above sea level, enough to leave some golfers a bit disoriented! The course's true distinction, though, is not its elevation but its slow build. It begins with some relatively easy, shorter holes, and then gradually shifts into some of the most challenging holes on all the PGA Tour.

2013 BMW Championship
Zach Johnson carded a final round 65 to win the 2013 BMW Championship from Conway Farms near Chicago, Illinois. Johnson shot three rounds in the 60s, including an opening 64 to give him some great momentum coming out of the gate.
The victory was the 10th PGA Tour win of Johnson's career. More importantly as it pertained to the 2013 FedEx Cup, Johnson moved into 4th in the standings. That meant that heading into the Tour Championship, Johnson controlled his own destiny and with a win in Atlanta would have won the FedEx Cup. It was made even more impressive by the fact that Johnson didn't even compete in The Barclays at the onset of the playoffs because he was the best man at his brother's wedding.
