Subscribe to our Weekly Pick Newsletter. There are plenty of good options in Group A this week, so we may rely on the draw to determine who to go with. Reasons not to like him are that his putter continuously lets him down see Matsuyama but on the plus side, when he gets hot, he tends to stay hot. MC 29 4 This is a week where we might bet on Spieth to finally break out once again. Spieth is the question. Day is a given. Again, it will come down to the draw and how we feel on Wednesday before deciding who to pair with Day.
DJ has been a little off the past few weeks but this should be a course where he does well. A few 4th place finishes in the past should be closer to the norm this week.
While Rickie Fowler is the defending champion here, before that he played fairly poorly at TPC Boston, so was it a 1 year aberration? He did play nicely last week up until the end, but there are better options in Group A. Now, on to the guy we actually have in the A5 position — Sergio. He is always a bet to get off to a fast start and then cool off over the weekend — especially Sunday. Reed has really turned it on for the stretch run with a victory last week at the Barclays.
While it will be hard to replicate that feat, he did finish 4th here last year and could very well get another top 5 or 10 this week.
Rory is the 1 course fit this week and also a former champion here. Despite two poor performances in a row, this is the place where he could get back in the Fedex Cup chase. Furyk cooled off a bit last week but that was to be expected at Bethpage Black.
We hope he gets it back on track and contends for a victory. He also was lackluster after a gold medal victory at the Olympics. Dufner is Mister With 22nd place finishes in 3 of his last 4.
The bronze-medal winner at the Olympics had a tough go at Bethpage and is in need of a strong week as he hopes for an at-large pick from U. He has nine tops this season but no victories. And he's had some success at TPC Boston, where he's been top 10 in two of the past three years. He's only played in the event four times, yet has a win and a runner-up finish on his resume.
Yes, he's coming off of a withdrawal at the Barclays, but his last start after a withdrawal at the U. Open was a win in Germany! Getting into the top by the skin of his teeth, I think the elder statesman puts up a nice finish this week and advances to next week's BMW.
He has had a really solid season with some nice finishes including a T-7 at Valspar, fourth at The Open Championship and a runner-up finish at St Jude. TPC Boston is a place where he has had a ton of success during the years, with a runner-up in and a win in Few players have a track record that can match that of John Senden at the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Although Senden has not enjoyed his best season this year, making 17 of 27 cuts, he has never missed a cut in nine starts at TPC Boston and finished inside of the top 25 on six occasions. While course history is not always a perfect indicator for success, TPC Boston brings out the best in Senden. He is not the flashy type to attract too much attention, even with his pristine record at this course, making him an attractive play this week.
Hoffman might be popular this week, but based on how I expect a lot of the general public to go about their roster construction, I don't believe he will see anything over 15 percent ownership. Hoffman is a pure ball striker who typically depends on streaks of chip-ins and low percentage putts to drop in order to contend week after week, so the only time he's a cash consideration is during the Texas swing.
This week he comes in fresh off of two events at which he's exceeded his value at basically this same salary. The course sets up much better for his game than Bethpage did, so I'd expect to see a top finish this week, as he's trending in that direction T, T in his past two events and it doesn't hurt that he's got some solid course history, either third last year, winner in , five top finishes.
Coming off a top 10 last week at the Barclays, a top 15 here in and possessing the approach game to succeed at TPC Boston, Kokrak has the potential to be a bargain play to plug into lineups. He had a hot putter last week at the Barclays, and if that continues this week, he can really make some noise at an incredibly low salary.
