Deutsche Bank – TPC Boston – Fed Ex Cup Playoffs
Final field list has 99 players – no Danny Willet
This is a cut event so low 70 & ties make it thru to the weekend
Last year a score +3 was needed to make the weekend.
74 players made it to the weekend.
TPC Boston Par 36-35-71
3 par fives (2 on front nine – 1 on back nine #18)
Last year Rickie Fowler -15 won this event by one shot over Stenson -14 and was the only player to have All 4 Rounds Under 70. Five other players (Stenson, O’Hair, Jones, Berger and Swafford) all shot the 1st 3 rounds in the 60’s but blew the bonus in the Final Round. Only Stenson was close with a final round 70, the others shot between 73 and 76.
Stenson blew a 1 shot lead after 54 holes and still had that lead with 3 holes left but a Double Bogey on the par 3 16th after hitting it in the water gave Fowler a 2-shot swing and the lead by 1 after Rickie made par.
The 18th is a reachable par 5 at 530yds that could provide another exciting finish.
REMEMBER – this is a Friday to Monday event so no golf on Thursday and make sure you get you entries reserved as I’m sure most GPP’s in this event (the last one with a cut) will fill 12-24 hours before lock.
