2011 Deutsche Bank Championship Betting Preview
I would like to welcome everyone to the 2011 Deutsche Bank Championship. This week the Top 100 Players in the Fed Ex Cup standings will be teeing it up at TPC Boston for the second leg of the Playoffs. In order to qualify for next weeks BMW Championship, players will be forced to be within the Top 70 in the Fed Ex Cup Rankings following this week. The added pressure of cracking the Top 70 will create excellent storylines all week in Boston. Lets take a closer look at the Course.
TPC Boston is a pristine course that luckily was not really affected by Hurricane Irene. The course obviously saw increased rainfall, but damages were very limited and the course drains extremely well. With beautiful conditions expect this week and into the weekend, players and organizers will be able to enjoy a 72-hole tournament.
The 7304 yard Par 72 layout forces golfers to be on their game and making plenty of birdies. Mike Weir and Vijay Singh, who both fired blistering rounds of 61, share the course record at TPC Boston. We can expect the winning score to be in the –20 to –22 range, as this has been a consistent number through out years past. Look for golfers to make the most of a relatively easy golf course that should have somewhat soft conditions.
Plenty of past Deutsche Bank Champions will be teeing it up again this week. All armed with a plethora of course knowledge, these players will understand which holes they can attack and which ones they need to make Pars on. Past champions competing this week include Charley Hoffman (2010), Steve Stricker (2009), Vijay Singh (2004, 2008), Phil Mickelson (2007) and Adam Scott (2003).
Some very big names have won this event in the past, but this year could be an exception. Players who are on the bubble to make the Top 70 could come out of nowhere and surprise everyone. It is my job to pick those winners. With plenty of research completed and in-depth knowledge of the PGA Tour, I am ready for week 2 of the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs. Come join us for another winning week – click here to get my picks.
