Golf Rankings for Deutsche Bank Championship
Rory McIlroy [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #1
After winning three consecutive tournaments, including a pair of majors, McIlroy scored a T22 to open the FedEx Cup Playoffs in The Barclays. He really struggled at TPC Boston last year, but won the event in 2012. Despite last week's dip in performance, McIlroy remains a must-start player, most likely for the final three events of the season.
Adam Scott [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #3
Since winning at Colonial, Scott has recorded six more top-15 finishes in a row. He won the inaugural event at TPC Boston back in 2003 and earned a share of second the following year. From 2010-12, Scott finished eighth or better in each start.
Henrik Stenson [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #2
Stenson is the defending TPC Boston champ after not playing at the site since 2007. In his last two starts of the season, Stenson scored a podium finish at the PGA Championship but only managed a T38 last week at The Barclays.
Jason Day [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #8
A healthy Day is a totally different player, and a highly competitive one. In his last two appearances, Day was strong at the PGA until the final round and earned a share of second last week at The Barclays. Over the last five years at TPC Boston, Day owns a pair of top-threes and four finishes inside the top 20.
Matt Kuchar [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #11
After hitting a bit of a rough patch, at least by his high standards, Kuchar has recorded three straight finishes of 12th or better with a pair of top-fives. TPC Boston had been a site of mediocrity for Kuchar until last year's T4.
Rickie Fowler [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #10
Fowler is among the hottest players on Tour right now with six finishes of 13th or better, highlighted by three top-three finishes. However, TPC Boston has been a struggle for Fowler, who is without a top-40 finish over the last four years.
Hunter Mahan [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #23
After struggling for much of the season, Mahan has finished T15 at Firestone, T7 at the PGA and won last week at The Barclays. Over the last three years at TPC Boston, Mahan has notched two finishes inside the top 15.
Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #7
Furyk continues to be among the most consistent players on Tour with seven straight finishes inside the top 20 with three top-fives. He was working on a top-10 at TPC Boston last year, but struggled in the final round to finish T27, losing out on a third straight top-15 at the site.
Brendon Todd [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #51
Todd is playing TPC Boston for the first time and he's been a mixed bag all season. His victory at the Byron Nelson back in mid-May sparked a run of six consecutive finishes of 17th or better that included four top-fives. Since then, Todd hasn't managed a result better than 45th in four attempts.
Phil Mickelson [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #16
Mickelson was the runner-up at the PGA, but didn't see the final round of play last week at The Barclays. Phil won TPC Boston the first time he played the course back in 2007. He placed T4 in 2012 after a T10 in 2011. Lefty earned a share of the lead after the first round last year, but only shot par the rest of the way to finish T41.
Jordan Spieth [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #9
Spieth finished T4 in last year's TPC Boston debut but is scuffling at the moment. After recording five consecutive finishes inside the top 20, Spieth has finished outside of the top 35 in three of his last four starts with one missed cut.
Brandt Snedeker [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #61
Coming off a season-high T5 at the Wyndham, things were finally starting to look up for Snedeker until missing the cut last week at The Barclays. He was a strong performer at TPC Boston from 2010-12 with three consecutive finishes of sixth or better until last year's T47.
