The 2nd round of the FedEx Cup playoffs begins today, Friday, because of the four day weekend this Labor Day weekend. The top 100 in FedEx Cup points are battling to advance to next week’s 3rd round by making the top 70 following this weekend’s Deutsche Bank Championship. The host venue is the TPC Boston in Norton, MA, a par-71 track which measures at 7,214 yards.
There are some very fun pairings to keep an eye on today and tomorrow. Will Tiger Woods finally figure out how to finish strong on the last couple of days? First he’ll need to make the cut. Tiger is paired today and tomorrow with Nick Watney, winner in the first round of the playoffs last week, and with Brandt Snedeker.
Other interesting groupings:
Rory McIlory/Zach Johnson/Jason Dufner
Dustin Johnson/Carl Petterson/Bubba Watson (who will win the long drive contest?)
Matt Kuchar/Hunter Mahan/Keegan Bradley
