The Barclays threw up some jaw dropping action last week as Patrick Reed managed to beat Rickie Fowler down the back 9 on late Sunday. Fowler seemed to gift wrap the victory to Patrick Reed. Not being able to hold on will have its consequences for Fowler as he misses out on an automatic place on the USA’s Ryder Cup Team, Reed though confirmed his place and will play at Hazeltine on the 30th of September. The playoffs roll on to TPC Boston which measures 7, 297 yards and plays as a par 71. Strangely enough, Fowler was also involved in an intense battle here last year that involved him just beating Henrik Stenson as part of a come from behind victory. The Open Champion’s participation is in doubt this time around. Stenson pulled out of last week’s event with a troublesome knee. He’s awaiting a scan that will reveal if he can play and what the extent of the damage is. Very worrying times for the European Ryder Cup team captain Darren Clarke as he will need Stenson fit and firing for next month’s Ryder Cup. Otherwise it is a strong field that includes 99 players. Can Fowler put in the same winning performance that he did last year or will the disappointment of last week’s choke impact his chances? it promises to be a great battle and another win here for Patrick Reed will give him a great chance of staking an early claim of winning the FedEx Cup and the $10m dollars that come with it.
Jason Day (+650 BetOnline.ag)
The world number one has had a quiet time of late given the incredibly high standards that he sets for himself. He still has a good chance of success in the FedEx Cup. He will fancy his chances at TPC Boston and use this as a chance to elevate himself up the standings of the FedEx Cup Leaderboard. If he gets off to a good start then Day could be hard to beat.
Rory Mcilroy (+1200 BetOnline.ag)
The Northern Irishman has been let down all season by his putting. If he can get that together then he will establish himself as world number one again. His ball striking is far and away better then anyone on tour. TPC Boston will give him a chance to find his form on the greens again. A win here could catapult Mcilory to FedEx Cup success.
Rickie Fowler (+2500 BetOnline.ag)
The defending champion has come into some good form at the right time of the season. This is a course he has enjoyed success on before and with the way he is currently playing, could enjoy further glory. This could be Fowler’s year as he has never won the FedEx Cup before. Expect big things from the little man this weekend.
