- Boston's Best
2 of the top 3 players in FedExCup points have more on the line than the Deutsche Bank Championship this week. Nick Watney and Brandt Snedeker will tee it up at 8:40AM ET tomorrow morning and both need another strong week as they hope to become U.S. Ryder Cup Captain’s Picks. Davis Love III will surely see plenty of them as they are grouped with Tiger Woods.
- Bubble Boy
Brian Davis is the ultimate bubble boy at TPC Boston this week. He's number 70 in FedExCup points and remember, the top 70 advance to the BMW Championship.
- NB3 Wins
For the first time in its 5-year history, the host of the NB3 Challenge is also the Champion. Notah Begay III and Tiger Woods teamed up to shoot 9-under-par to lead the West team in victory over the East. The event raised $500,000 for the NB3 Foundation to fight obesity and diabetes in Native American communities.
