No. 5 – Justin Thomas +1400

I know the 27-year-old Alabama native is coming off a pair of underwhelming outings at last week’s Northern Trust (T49) and the PGA Championship two weeks prior (T37), but Thomas did win the St. Jude Invitational just prior to that while finishing second in the workday Charity Open in mid July. Thomas won this tournament a year ago and although last year’s BMW Championship took place at a completely different course, I like his chances coming into this one. 

No. 4 – Jason Day +2500

The 32-year-old Australian is coming off a poor performance at last week’s Northern Trust where he failed to make the cut after shooting an opening day 70 and a second day 75, but Day also finished an encouraging T4 at the PGA Championship two weeks ago – following three straight Top-10 finishes. Day won this tournament in 2015 and while that event took place at Conway Farms in Lake Forest, Ill, I like Day to really challenge for the outright win after racking up four Top-10 finishes in his last five outings with a pair of Top-5 finishes for good measure. 

No. 3 – Webb Simpson +2000

Third in the FedEx standings, the 35-year-old North Carolina native comes into this tournament off a solid sixth place finish at the Northern Trust and he finished an even more impressive third at the Wyndham Championship a week earlier. Over his last seven outings, Simpson has one win (RBC Heritage), three Top-10 finishes, a 12th place finish and a Top-40 finish. Simpson also finished T24 in this event a year ago and has the look of a legitimate challenger this week. 

No. 2 – Collin Morikawa +2200

Make no mistake about it, the 23-year-old Californian is a blossoming star with one of the brightest futures of anyone in professional golf. Despite failing to make the cut at the Northern Trust last week, Morikawa won the PGA Championship two weeks ago nearly one month prior. Morikawa also finished second in the Charles Schwab Challenge in mid-June and he’ll be highly motivated after last week’s poor showing. 

No. 1 – Dustin Johnson +800

No one is really talking about it, but I genuinely believe that the newly minted FedEx No. 1 is out to prove something to everyone after Brooks Koepka’s trash-talking at the PGA Championship a couple of weeks ago. Johnson finished T2 at the year’s first major and backed that up with a stupendous performance to win last week’s Northern Trust by a whopping 11 strokes. Johnson shot in the 60’s in all four rounds and has not recorded a single round outside of the 60’s in 12 consecutive rounds over his last three outings. Johnson has won this event twice (2016, 2010) and while those two victories took place on two different courses (Crooked Stick and Cog Hill Golf and Country Club), Johnson is on fire right now and my top pick to win the 2020 BMW Championship.
