The BMW Championship is the third of the four FedEx Cup PGA golf playoff tournaments that will determine the winner of the 2016 FedEx Cup and the rich $10 million bonus prize money. The BMW Championship has been a playoff tournament in the FedEx Cup playoffs since its inception in 2007. 

Only the top 70 players in the FedEx Cup standings can play in the 2016 BMW Championship this week. The BMW Championship does not have a 36-hole cut so all players will earn a paycheck this week. Only the top 30 players based upon FedEx Cup points will move on next week to play in the fourth playoff tournament at the Tour Championship.

Since the FedEx Cup Playoffs were started in 2007, only Tiger Woods (2007 and 2009) and Billy Horschel won the BMW Championship and went on to win the FedEx Cup. 

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2016 BMW Championship is $8.5 million. That is up 3% over the $8.25 million that was up for grabs in this playoff tournament last year. 

  • Winner - $1.53

The winner of the 2016 BMW Championship will earn a very cool $1.53 million. That is up 3% over the $1.485 million that Jason Day earned last year when he won the BMW Championship.

  • Second place - $918,000

Second place is worth $918,000 at the BMW Championship in 2016. That is up 3% over the $891,000 that Daniel Berger earned when he finished alone in 2nd place in this tournament last year. 

  • Third place - $578,000

Third place at the BMW Championship is worth $578,000 in 2016. That is up 3% over the $561,000 that Scott Piercy earned when he finished alone in 3rd place at this tournament last year.

  • Fourth place - $408,000

Fourth place is worth $408,000 at the BMW Championship in 2016. Rickie Fowler, J.B. Holmes and Rory McIlroy split $1.023 million with each player earning $341,000 when they all tied for 4th place here last year.

  • Fifth place - $340,000

  • Sixth place - $306,000
The 70th and last place finisher in the 2016 BMW Championship will earn a paycheck of around $18,000. So all players this week will earn at least $18,000.
