While time will tell what this season’s installment of the John Deere will bring, it guarantees to be a thriller. As the last chance for many of the Tour’s bright young stars to qualify for next week’s Open Championship, there’s plenty on the line for young stud and wily veteran alike.

Entering Sunday’s play at the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills, eight players with no major championship wins on their resume teed off with just four shots separating them. At the end of the day, Brooks Koekpa was four clear of all of them. As the wind howled and combatants bogeyed their way around the course, Koepka kept bombing it down the middle and scrambling whenever he needed to on his way to a 6-under 66.

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.

Despite events on both sides of the Atlantic, there’s no change at the top in the Fantasy Golf Rankings, August 9, 2016 edition, as the tour catches it’s breath after a busy majors season.

The top five players this week, were in the exact same positions last week, as many of the top players took the week off to prepare for the upcoming PGA Tour playoffs and Olympic golf competition.

Open champion Henrik Stenson of Sweden remains in the #1 position for a second week, with a 360 point lead over second place Dustin Johnson, the 2016 U.S. Open champion.

Australia’s Jason Day, the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, holds at number three, extending his streak of consecutive weeks in the Top 10 to 21.

PGA champion Jimmy Walker holds at number four, while young Englishmen Tyrell Hatton completes the top five, holding his place after a T17th at the Traveler’s Championship.

The name at the top of the Fantasy Golf Rankings, July 19, 2016 edition, is unchanged from a week ago, but the lead over #2 has shrunk considerably.

U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson holds at number one for a 5th consecutive week, picking up some valuable ratings points with a solid T9 at the Open Championship in Troon.

DJ’s chart-topping run matches Jason Day for the longest number of consecutive weeks in the top spot. The 2016 Players Champion held the top spot for five consecutive weeks between May 3rd and May 31st.

Johnson’s lead has been reduced dramatically by Open champion Henrik Stenson, who jumps 11 spots to number two after picking up his first major championship title on Sunday. The Swede sits just 760 points behind the rankings leader and looks like a good bet to challenge DJ in the coming weeks.

The second place ranking matches Stenson’s best showing ever in the rankings. He was 2nd in our initial survey on November 16, 2015. The win also moves Henrik into 5th place in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – One of the biggest stories of the 2015-2016 season, thus far, has been the incredibly consistent play of American Kevin Na.

Coming off back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Open and the Shriners Hospital for Children Open, Na put himself back in contention for another top finish, and maybe a second PGA Tour win, after a 64 on moving day on Saturday.  The 32-year old also finished second at this event last year to two-time defending champion Ryan Moore.

Na doesn’t seemed too stressed about his current position or his record.  “Eight times in my career I finished second. I’ve got to keep the streak alive. Worst case, I win, right?” joked Na.

“I’ve been unlucky a few times. But you know what? The last few weeks I’ve never felt so comfortable coming down the stretch. I’ve been getting a lot of compliments from my friends and coaches and family members, friends, saying how comfortable I looked.”
