Golf Rankings for Deutsche Bank Championship
Adam Scott [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #2
Since 2010, Scott has finished T5, T8 and T9 in the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. He’s coming off a victory last week at The Barclays to give him three top-fives over his last four starts. Scott is currently second on Tour in scoring average, 14th in total driving and fourth in All-Around Ranking.
Tiger Woods [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #1
2 Woods rebounded from a T40 at the PGA Championship to earn a share of second last week at The Barclays. Tiger is dealing with back spasms and will skip a charity event on Wednesday. Woods won the Deutsche Bank Championship back in 2006 and finished solo third a year ago. There’s an obvious risk, but Tiger has played great through pain on more than one occasion.
Phil Mickelson [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #8
Including a victory in 2007 at TPC Boston, Mickelson has finished inside the top 30 five times. Over the last two years Lefty placed T4 and T10. Mickelson is also coming off a T6 in The Barclays. He’s first in birdie average, seventh in scoring average and 16th in All-Around Ranking.
Matt Kuchar [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #6
Kuchar has made 24 consecutive cuts, the longest active streak on Tour. He comes to TPC Boston with eight straight finishes inside the top 30 this season. Kuchar only managed a T35 at the site last year, but played very well in the final two rounds. He’s currently sixth in scoring average.
Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #21
Furyk is playing his best when it matters the most. He’s suddenly rattled off four straight finishes inside the top 10, highlighted by a runner-up performance at the PGA Championship. At TPC Boston, Furyk owns four finishes inside the top 15 over the last five years. He’s now up to 18th in scoring average.
Rory McIlroy [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #10
Since missing the cut in the British Open, McIlroy has placed inside the top 30 each of the last three tournaments. He won last year’s Deutsche Bank Championship in his second career start at TPC Boston. McIlroy is looking more consistent as of late, so a title defense is not out of the question.
Justin Rose [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #11
Rose has competed at TPC Boston nine times since 2003. He scored a pair of top-fives before the course was shortened in 2007 and has missed three of five cuts since. Rose is second in total driving and fifth in All-Around Ranking. He’s coming off a T2 last week at The Barclays.
Henrik Stenson [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #3
After a very sharp opening round at The Barclays, Stenson stumbled the rest of the way to finish outside of the top 40. That halts a streak of five straight worldwide top-10 finishes for Stenson, which included four podium results. He’s good for third in total driving, fourth in scoring average and 19th in All-Around Ranking.
Jason Dufner [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #16
Dufner followed his T4 at Firestone and victory in the PGA Championship with a T37 last week at The Barclays. He’s played TPC Boston each of the last four years with three inside the top 20. Dufner ranks 15th in scoring average.
Zach Johnson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #12
Johnson skipped The Barclays in order to attend his brother’s wedding as the best man. Z.J. has looked sharp on the course lately with five straight finishes of eighth or better. In seven starts at TPC Boston, he has managed three top-20s.
Jason Day [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #5
Day has made 22 consecutive cuts and is capable of a solid (if unspectacular) performance most weeks. He blew an opportunity to win at TPC Boston in 2010 and finished T3 the following year. However, Day only managed a T51 last season. He’s coming off a T25 at The Barclays. Day is currently 13th in scoring average.
Dustin Johnson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #13
Since getting healthy, Johnson put together six consecutive cuts made until missing the cut last week at The Barclays. D.J. has been a mixed bag at TPC Boston, finishing T4 both last year and in his 2009 debut. In between, Johnson finished outside of the top 40 each time. Johnson is first in eagles and fifth in driving distance.
