While it’s not my favorite piece of architecture in the greater Chicago—or even in the top 10 courses in that ridiculously golf-rich region—entertaining and bizarre things just seem to happen at Medinah No. 3. (It still pains me thinking of Mike Donald leaving there without a U.S. Open after playing so beautifully.)

That should add up to an entertaining BMW Championship where 69 will be whittled down to 30 for the FedExCup/Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Ben Everill at does a nice job with this recap of past events and club lore, including a pair of legendary pros and that magnificent architectural gem of a clubhouse.
