The PGA Tour Playoffs move to TPC Boston this week and it’s an understatement to say there is a lot riding on this tournament. It seems people are more interested in who is going to be the final four Captain’s picks for the Ryder Cup then the fact $10 million is up for grabs in a few weeks. To be fair, the attention will probably shift more to the Tour Championship once Davis Love III makes his picks on Monday. But until then, the attention will be on the 5-6 players who are on the short list.
Instead of focusing on the Ryder Cup right now, I am going to make my picks for the Deutsche Bank Championship. But instead of picking four players, I am only going to start picking two.
If Dustin can pull out a victory this week, he can probably cement himself as one of the Captain’s picks on Monday. Last week at The Barclays, he finished T3 and will be looking to move up a couple spots and win the second leg of the Fed Ex Cup. Will anything less than a win put him in the Ryder Cup? In my opinion, NO. He must win and he knows it.
Dufner decided to rest for The Barclays, so he should be well rested and ready to go. He has played great all year and is definitely on the short list for PGA Tour POY. He doesn’t need to win, he firmly holds his spot in next week’s BMW Championship. I think Dufner is one of the big boys now and he will show it this week.
