ATLANTA — Rory McIlroy leads the charge of the big names blowing into Windy City.

He is on the tip-end of the world top 50 players seeing action in the BMW Championships slated 17-20 August at Olympia Fields Country Club north course.

With seven straight events that he finished in the top 10 earnings, McIlroy is +750 favorite.  The Genesis Scottish Open champion did well on links including Bermuda, Bent.

The tournament will decide who are the 30 players to see action in the Tour Championship slated next week at East Lake also here.

Jon Rahm (+1000) won here in a playoff in 2020. The previous BMW Championship held at Olympia Fields was the rookie season for Scottie Scheffler who is at +800.

Picking up a paycheck for T20 kept Scheffler in the top 30 in 2022. He is sitting at No. 2 in the FedEx Cup standings since the Masters.

Two-time defending champion Patrick Cantlay (+1000) is also a strong bet. He caught Lucas Glover and forced a playoff in Memphis before losing grip of the title.
