The BMW Championship 2009 will once again return to Cog Hill G.C but the course won't be the same course that hosted the 2007 BMW Championship. It's undergone serious renovations conducted by Rees Jones and the greens are now much faster and trickier, the bunkers are a lot deeper and this week at the BMW, pin positions will be a serious test, making strategic play and accurate ball striking the premium. The course will play about 7,386 yards and accuracy is a must so this week the value picks will focus on the more experienced players with games relying on placement and course management.
Nic's value picks man to beat: Jim Fuyrk - Recent course form at Cog Hill second to none and in good current form.

(All picks W/O Woods)
-1pt E/W Mike Weir @ 50/1 - If not for a quad early in the last round at the Deutsche bank, he'd have been challenging. Excels around playoffs time.
-1pt E/W Zach Johnson @ 33/1 - Course management is one of his key attributes as well as putting. Good performance last week and one who knows how to win when he gets in position unlike the torrent of bottlers I've had recently.
-1pt E/W Scott Verplank @ 33/1 - Vast experience and one of the most accurate on tour. Has been is superb form of late and got the tast of victory last week. also has the added motivation of the presidents cup.
-1pt E/W David Toms @ 60/1 - No 1 on tour in driving accuracy, top putter and if it's course management and strategy you want, there's not many better than Toms. His next win isn't far away.
-1pt E/W Lucas Glover @ 45/1 - Glover is ranked no. 1 in total driving therefore is a standout pick for this course. He has got his putting sorted out this year hence why he has had such a good season
