GolfWRX is live this week from the 2017 Dell Technologies Open at TPC Boston, which will play as par-71 measuring 7,342 yards for the event. Tournament action begins on Friday morning with the final round scheduled for Labor Day (Monday).
As the second-of-four legs in the 2017 FedExCup Playoffs, TPC Boston is set to host the top-100 players on the current FedExCup Points list. Players will need to position themselves inside the top-70 after this event in order to continue onto the BMW Championship. From there, they’ll need to occupy a spot inside the top-30 to qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship.
After his win at last week’s Northern Trust, Dustin Johnson has moved into the No. 1 spot on the points list (he was previously No. 4). Jordan Spieth, who lost in a playoff the Johnson, is in the No. 2 slot, Justin Thomas is No. 3, and Hideki Matsuyama — who was previously leading the points list, but has dropped after missing the cut — is No. 4.
Last year, Rory McIlroy won the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs at the 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship, which was also held at TPC Boston. He went onto win the FedExCup Playoffs. McIlroy has some ground to make up to even qualify for the Tour Championship this year, however, as he currently sits in the 43rd position.
