The 2012 BMW Championship begins Thursday, and everyone is chasing Rory McIlroy.

The PGA TOUR Fedex Cup playoffs continue this week with the 2012 BMW Championship. The event, which features the top 70 players in the FedEx Cup standings, begins Thursday from the Crooked Stick Golf Course.

Current FedEx Cup leader Rory McIlroy will play in one of Thursday's most notable groups. McIlroy will be paired with Nick Watney and Tiger Woods who are currently second and third in the standings. McIlroy enters the BMW Championship with more than a 1,300-point lead, thanks in part to his win at the Deutsche Bank Championship last week.

Phil Mickelson, who is currently ninth in the standings, will be paired with Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner. Louis Oosthuizen made the biggest jump in the standings, going from 21st to fifth after finishing second at the Deutsche Bank Championship. He will be paired with Brandt Snedeker and Dustin Johnson on Thursday.

Thursday's first round will begin at 12:15 p.m. ET with television coverage available on the Golf Channel from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET. The complete list of Thursday's tee times can be found below (all times ET).
