BMW Championship - The Punter's Preview

As top-70 on the FedEx Cup standings move to Illinois for the second of the three FedEx Cup Playoff events, Steve Rawlings provides tournament history, course info and bets.

He says: "Last week's missed cut is perfectly understandable given it came in Morikawa's first start after winning his first major and I think [28.0] is more than fair for this week."

BMW Championship - Each-Way Tips

Dave Tindall makes three each-way selections for the action at Olympia Fields, including one aptly-named competitor.

Ahead of the big tee off in Chicago on Thursday, Dave Tindall has three selections to make a fast start at Olympia Fields.

Back Matthew Wolff each-way @ 40/1

Andy Swales provides the lowdown on the Olympia Fields course in Illinois and discusses the form of the players going into the tournament.

He says: "Daniel Berger is currently at a career-high No 13 in the world rankings, thanks to four podium finishes from his last six starts - which includes a victory at Colonial.

UK Championship - Course and Form Guide

Andy Swales serves up vital course info for the Belfry and discusses which players might have the form to make backing them worthwhile this weekend.

He says: "This well-bunkered layout, with its selection of lakes and streams, demands good course management. Flat and tree-lined, water comes into play on 10 holes, and sometimes spectacularly."
