PGA TOUR Playoffs:Deutsche Bank ChampionshipSeptember 01, 2010 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the seasoned golfers move north to the Boston area for the Deutsche Bank Championship - the second event under the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. TPC Boston will play host for the event. This splendid golf course was originally designed by the team of Arnold Palmer in 2001.

Among the favorites to contend at this tournament are Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson. Matt Kuchar, the winner of last week's The Barclays hopes to continue his impressive season as he continues to lead in the FedEx Cup standings.

However, Tiger Woods displayed some of his superior skills last week as he finished 5-shots off the winner Matt Kuchar. He seems like a rejuvenated man in his opening round but suffered some missteps in the 2nd and 3rd round but settled in the 4th round with a 4-under par 67. He's more confident now with his shots and putting and it's quite evident that he's slowly crawling his way back in his top form.

The golf handicappers still installed Tiger Woods as the favorite to win the Deutsche Bank Championship. Woods has a chance to snatch his first tournament win for 2010, he's optimistic that he would not end this season without a bang.
