BMW Championship

The BMW Championship was played September 9–12. 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 2011 Masters, U.S. Open, and (British) Open Championship.

Dustin Johnson won the event by one stroke over Paul Casey and moved to second in the rankings.[7] Former FedEx Cup winners Tiger Woods (2007 and 2009) and Vijay Singh (2008) finished 42nd and 57th, respectively, on the points list and did not advance to The Tour Championship.

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