The 2018 FedEx Cup playoffs are set to continue this weekend with the Dell Technologies Championship event starting on Friday night AEST.
Last weekend saw the first of four FedEx Playoff events be completed with the world’s top golfers taking to the Ridgewood Championship Course for ‘The Northern Trust’. It proved to be a great weekend for the Americans, as well as some Aussies. Bryson DeChambeau manoeuvred the course the best of the lot by far and finished in 1st at -18. Tony Finau continued his strong season shooting -13 and finishing in 2nd. Young Aussie Cameron Smith played out of his skin to tie for 3rd with Billy Horschel, while Adam Scott found his touch to finish in tied 5th.
As mentioned above, there are four events in the 2018 FedEx playoffs. The schedule is outlined below.
The Northern Trust (23rd-26th August) - completed
Dell Technologies Championship (31st August – 3rd September)
BMW Championship (6th-9th September)
Tour Championship (20th-23rd September)
TPC Boston will host the Dell Technologies Championship (previously known as the Deutsche Bank Championship (2003–2016), beginning on Friday August 31st and concluding on Monday September 3rd. The course was originally designed in 2003 by Arnold Palmer, but was renovated in 2007 by architect Gil Hanse and now plays as a par-72, 7,241-yard golf course.
In the tournament’s 15 year history only Rory Mcilroy (2012, 2016) and Vijay Singh (2004, 2008) have won it on multiple occasions. The inaugural winner of the tournament was Adam Scott (2003), who has had 6 top-10 finishes in 12 starts, while the most recent winner is Justin Thomas (2017).
The course record stands at 61 (11 under par), which was achieved by Vijay Singh in 2006 and replicated by Mike Weir in 2008. The tournament record is 262, held by Vijay Singh (2008), Charley Hoffman (2010) and Henrik Stenson (2013).
As mentioned above, Adam Scott has been terrific at TPC Boston with 6 top-10 finishes in 12 starts, as well as a win in the courses first time hosting the Dell Technologies Championship in 2003. On top of that, he’s found himself in some form this season and is coming off a T5 finish at the Ridgewood Championship Course in the first event of the FedEx Playoffs.
We very much like Adam Scott’s course history at TPC Boston and the recent showing from his last couple of tournaments. The added pressure and stakes of the FedEx Cup Playoffs may just have been what he needed.
Another player we can see performing well this weekend is the ever reliable Justin Thomas. The 25-year-old and current world number 3 has put together another great season on tour and will like his chances again this weekend. In 2018, Thomas has had 9 top-10 finishes in 20 starts, which also includes 3 wins. Couple that with the fact that he’s the current defending champion at TPC Boston and you have yourself a man who’s a great chance of performing well.
Finally, TPC Boston is a course where the cream always seems to rise to the top. The average winning score is -17.5 under par, which obviously requires a lot of low scores to achieve. Expect this course to play to advantage of the best golfers on tour, one of those being JT.
