BMW Championship: Grillo and Scott can be Philly busters

BMW Championship betting tips

We have selected four players expected to go well at this week's BMW Championship at the Aronimink Golf Club.

Just three days after Bryson DeChambeau won for the second successive week to cement his position at the top of the FedEx Cup standings, the PGA Tour gravy train rumbles into Pennsylvania for the penultimate event before the Tour Championship.

Aronimink Golf Club, just outside Philadelphia, hosts the BMW Championship for the first time in seven years and all the signs are that the course has undergone big changes with the addition of a hundred bunkers, fewer trees and enlarged greens in keeping with the original Donald Ross design from 90 years ago.

Despite wider fairways, this 7,200-yard par-70 course looks to favour those who are accurate off the tee and can find greens regularly which points to the first of our BMW Championship betting tips - Emiliano Grillo at 80/1, with BetStars offering six each-way places for a field of just 70 players.

The Argentinian was in the mix with a third-round 64 at TPC Boston last week and despite a closing 70 still managed to finish in a share of seventh.

That performance was just the tonic Grillo needed after a mediocre run since June during which he finished inside the top 20 just once in seven tournaments.

Super accurate off the tee and inside the top 40 for greens in regulation, Aronimink is a course that should suit Grillo as well as Adam Scott, the next of our free golf tips at 33/1.

The Australian was off the pace at the BMW Championship but he was third here on his only other appearance in 2011 and his form has been excellent, following third place at the USPGA Championship with fifth at the Northern Trust before his Boston blip.

Scott is sixth in the GIR standings, skills that will come in useful when trying to avoid the sand pits which pepper the course.

The next of our BMW Championship betting tips is CT Pan at 90/1. Pan shot four sub-70 rounds at the Dell Technologies Championship to book his spot in the field and a few weeks ago was second in the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield, a Ross-designed course.

Pan looks to be peaking at just the right time at a track which should suit his game.

Kyle Stanley also caught the eye last week and had he managed a birdie at the par-five 18th - the easiest hole over four rounds - would have been looking at his fifth top-10 of the season.

The 30-year-old American was a runner-up at TPC Southwind at the start of August and being inside the top five for driving accuracy and greens in regulation for the season will help his cause this week. At 66/1, Stanley is worth a punt.
