OWINGS MILLS, Md. – The BMW Championship will take place at the Caves Valley Golf Club course in Owings Mills, Maryland this weekend as the field of PGA Golfers is cut from 70 to 30 ahead of the Tour Championship.
History Of Caves Valley Golf Club
Caves Valley Golf Club hasn’t been the host of too many notable events in recent memory. This leaves bettors guessing as to which style of play will be most successful. However, there’s still information to be pulled from the course itself.
The Caves Valley course has been extended to 7542 yards in preparation for this tournament, which could leave the longer players with a bit of an advantage over the field. Also, history has shown the course is relatively easy which means players with a good approach will be in a great spot to find birdies.
The regulated sports betting sites are in the dark just like everyone else for this event but the odds look to be what is expected in instances like this.

Which Golfers Fit The Style?
With 70 of the best golfers in the world competing against one another, it may be tough to find an edge. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t one.
Collin Morikawa (+2000)
Collin Morikawa has the type of play that translates well on any course. He ranks first in Strokes Gained: Approach The Green and is second in Ball Striking, only behind Jon Rahm. His average drive distance is 295.2 yards which is neither great nor awful but allow him to hit fairways at the 11th-highest clip on the tour at 69.49%.
Bryson DeChambeau (+2000)
Naturally, if the length is thought to be an advantage, Bryson DeChambeau is the first name to come to mind. He’s No. 1 in Strokes Gained: Off The Tee while having the longest average driving distance (321.7 yards) on the PGA Tour. DeChambeau has hit just 54.05% of fairways this season, but the course’s wider fairways could help him succeed.
Plus, DeChambeau is second on tour in the birdie or better conversion percentage at 36.47%, which could bode well for a low-scoring event.
Louis Oosthuizen (+3300)
If an event is expected to be low-scoring, somebody who’s hot with the putter is bound to be in contention. Golf betting sites have the top putter of the season a little bit down the list in the form of Louis Oosthuizen. He’s first in Strokes Gained: Putting and has finished inside the top 20 in each of his seven of his last eight events with five top 10 finishes and four top-five placements.
