Tournament: 2014 Deutsche Bank Championship
Date: Aug. 29 - Sept. 1
Venue: TPC Boston
Location: Norton, Massachusetts

The FedEx Cup playoffs are in full effect after The Barclays last week, which provided viewers a glimpse at some of the top names fighting for position on Sunday for the victory. Hunter Mahan ended up taking the trophy in the end, and in turn took over the top spot in the standings.

This week, the PGA Tour heads to Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship where the top-100 players from the FedEx Cup points list will look to continue their season at least one more week. In these playoff tournaments, points are multiplied by five, which is why seven different players moved their way into the top-100 with great showings at The Barclays.

This tourney was established in 2003 and has seen some very low scoring, including a tie for the tournament record at 22-under by 2013 victor Henrik Stenson. This par-71, 7,214-yard course has seen its winners triumph by more than one stroke in seven of 11 events.

Let’s take a look at a few golfers who have the biggest chance to make a splash in this week’s tournament.

Golfers to Watch

Henrik Stenson (15/1): Stenson likes to step up his game in big moments with all four of his career PGA Tour wins coming against the strongest fields. Among those victories are two from these very same FedEx Cup playoffs last season. He posted a score of 22-under at this course a year ago, outscoring Steve Stricker by two shots for the win. Stenson has placed in the top-15 in 3-of-4 majors on the year, including top-4 finishes at the U.S. Open and PGA Championship, and has been in the top-25 in seven of his 13 events. Stenson is extremely accurate off the tee (70.2%, 10th on tour) which has led to the 13th-most greens hit in regulation (68.6%). All of these factors make Stenson a solid bet to be at the top of the leaderboard come Sunday.

Hunter Mahan (25/1): Mahan took Sunday at The Barclays by storm and is the only player to have participated in every FedEx Cup playoff tournament since its inception in 2007. His six top-10’s in 22 tournaments this year helped him into the top position in the FedEx Cup rankings, and he is turning it on at the right time with top-15 finishes in his past three events, all against top competition. Mahan does not specialize in any one area, but does everything very well, as he ranks in the top-50 in driving accuracy, driving distance, greens in regulation and strokes gained putting. He placed 13th at this event last season, and should be able to put up a better performance this week.

Matt Kuchar (17/1): Kuchar has been one of the most consistent players this year with a top-10 finish in half (11) of his 22 tournaments. He has been hot coming into this week as well with three straight top-12 showings, and took fourth at this course last season with a score of 17-under. Kuchar makes up for his meager 282.5 average driving distance (142nd on tour) with great control (67.5%, 22nd on tour) and amazing putting (.593 strokes-gained putting, 8th on tour). He is not a flashy player and usually flies under the radar, but Kuchar should always be someone who is competitive until the end.

Patrick Reed (35/1): Reed is one of a few players that has won multiple times on the tour this year, which is very impressive considering he just turned 24 earlier in August. He finished in ninth last week at The Barclays, and certainly looks like he belongs among the best in the game while ranking 11th in sand save percentage (59.4%). Reed is very much a high risk/high reward type of bet, but he is getting more confident each time out, and when his game is on, it is something special to watch.

William McGirt (110/1): McGirt is having a career year as he ranks 35th in the FedEx Cup standings and has posted top-25 finishes in each of his past four events; including placing fifth at The Barclays. He is another feast-or-famine type of player as he missed 10 cuts in 27 events played this year, but has a tremendous ability to score on par-3’s, getting a birdie or better 17.4% of the time (7th on tour). McGirt is certainly not expected to win with triple-digit odds and so many top golfers out there, but he could be a darkhorse amongst those big names.
