2016 Deutsche Bank ChampionshipNorton, Massachusetts – The PGA Tour Playoffs move to the Boston area this week for the playing of the 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship.

American Patrick Reed won the first playoff event last week at Bethpage Black, ensuring himself a top five position heading into the Tour Championship at East Lake and a shot at the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus.

Twenty-five players were eliminated from playoff contention last week at The Barclays, leaving just the Top 100 players in the FedEx standings eligible to compete this week at TPC Boston.

With Davis Love III‘s Ryder Cup captains picks still to come, several American players will be looking to impress the captain enough to snag one of the four remaining picks on the U.S. team. Included in that group will be defending Deutsche Bank champion, Rickie Fowler, who missed an opportunity to clinch an automatic berth with a final nine meltdown last week.

So who will be the next player to punch their ticket to East Lake? Here’s the 411 on the 2016 Deutsche Bank Classic.

With a tournament cancellation on the PGA Tour and many of the top players taking the week of before the Open Championship, the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, July 12, 2016 edition, look a lot like last week’s survey.

Dustin Johnson continues to hold a big lead over fellow American Scott Piercy, heading into the third major of the year. DJ, who sits second in the Official World Golf Ranking heading into play this week, looks poised to remain on top for a while, particularly if he can post another strong finish at Royal Troon. The Columbia, South Carolina native comes in riding a two-tournament winning streak, adding the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational two weeks ago to his recent U.S. Open victory.

Piercy may have had his first major as well, if it wasn’t for Johnson’s strong play, after finishing second in both events.

World number one Jason Day holds at #3 for second week, while Matt Kuchar remains in the fourth spot.

The only change in the Top 5 sees a pair of idle players swap positions as American Jim Furyk improves one spot to number five, knocking Northern Ireland’s Shane Lowry down to number six.
