GolfWRX is live this week from the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, where the top-100 players in the points standings convene at TPC Boston to compete for 75 spots to move on in The Playoffs. The par-71 layout will measure 7,261 yards for the championship.
Last week at The Barclays, Hunter Mahan won his first tournament in over two years to overtake the top position in the FedEx Cup standings, and moves one step closer to the $10 million payout. Rory McIlroy, who won The Open Championship and the PGA Championship in 2014, sits in second place within striking distance, with Jimmy Walker sitting in third. Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson and Jim Furyk are in 4th, 5th and 6th places, respectively.
Henrik Stenson won last year’s Deutsche Bank Championship en route to his FedEx Cup Playoff 2014 victory. He holed out from a greenside bunker on the 71st hole to beat out Sergio Garcia at the event.
