Deutsche Bank Championship Golf Tips. It’s the second of four Fedex Cup playoffs and we are down to 100 players. Read our betting preview for tips and odds.

Venue
TPC Boston, Norton, MA • Purse: $8,500,000

The Deutsche Bank Championship is a regular event in the golfing calendar during the Labour Day weekend and the 2016 edition will be played from September 2nd to 5th. With a total winning purse of US$8.5million of which the winner takes home $1.53million and 2,000 FedExCup points, the Deutsche Bank Championships is the second leg of the playoffs after the Barclays Championships.

The event starts on a Friday and runs through to Monday – one of the many unique factors that differentiate the event. The tournament has its roots in 2003 but it was only in 2007 that it became part of the playoffs.

The action takes place on the TPC Boston Course and has a total yardage of 7,216 and a par-score of 71. Situated on nearly 400 acres, the location was once used for charcoal production and later as a gravel mine. The legendary golfer Arnold Palmer was the original designer but the renovation in 2007 was supervised by Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner with a bit of help from Brad Faxon.

Coming to the course, there are many holes that attract attention – none more than the one on the 18th. This hole is a 530-yard par-5 hole which gives a perception of being an easy target. But, the renovation of 2011-12 has left the green smaller and elevated. Strategically placed bunkers make the tee shot a difficult bargain as does the wetlands area that front the green.

The tournament always attracts marquee names and this year is no exception. World number one Jason Day and number two Dustin Johnson spearhead the field joined by defending champion Rickie Fowler. Doubts remain about the participation of Open Champion Henrik Stenson who withdrew after one round at the Barclays with persistent knee troubles.

After a dip in his form, Day seems to have found his touch again as he approaches the end of the season. Backing him to be a champion looks slightly far-fetched but expect him to stay in contention and probably finish in the top ten. The favourite should definitely be Stenson who has been the most consistent golfer of the summer. Back him to come up with a solid performance.

Among others, Rory McIlroy who is fast plummeting down the rankings is a threat if he can find his a game over the weekend. There are records in waiting for the illustrious Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson who will be making their 35th start in the FedExCup Playoffs.

Last year’s battle saw Rickie Fowler come from three strokes back with eight holes remaining to relegate Stenson to second place. In fact, the tournament has a rich pedigree of producing champions who come from behind – the last six winners have done exactly the same.

Only four players in the last three years have managed to achieve top-10 finishes at each of the first two play-offs and that includes Stenson. Will he extend his good run at the tournament or will the top guns’ fire at the right time?

Golf Tips For The Deutsche Bank Championship
Well we got quite excited after a round and a half last week at the Barclays when Jason Day and Kevin Chappell were T2. Only for Chappell to fall away badly. Day did manage to finish T4 but as we backed to win gave us no return. He is once again favourite for this tournament and we see no reason to desert him this week. He can be backed each way at 7/1 with Coral.

Our second tip goes to an old timer who has an excellent record here in recent years. Jim Furyk fully fit and playing some decent golf finished T4 in the event last year. He rates as a very lively contender with so many of the top boys showing a dip in form and at odds of 45/1 with Bet365 is our next best tip.

Our choice for outside tip for the Deutsche’s goes to Justin Thomas. A winner this season when taking the CIMB Classic back in January he finished a very credible T10 at the Barclays. He is overpriced with Coral bookmaker at 80/1. So we will have some of that thank you!!!
