Only 70 men are still alive in the FedEx Cup Playoffs with two events left in the 2016-2017 season. Just 30 of those top-70 will advance to next week’s Tour Championship to have the chance at winning the $10 million FedEx Cup.

All the big names are in the field this week in Chicago at the BMW Championship and many will have their early-round play streamed on PGA TOUR LIVE, which will have coverage beginning early Thursday morning.

Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama, Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler rank one through six in the season-long rankings and will be featured inside PGA TOUR LIVE‘s coverage window over the first two days of the event. Players six through 12 will also be featured.


The first two days of the BMW Championship will be live streamed on PGA TOUR LIVE beginning at 11 a.m. EST, giving subscribers eight hours of live golf that otherwise would go unseen. Through the Tour’s partnership with Twitter, the first hour-plus of the PGA TOUR LIVE broadcast can be seen for free
