We’re down to 100. The second leg of the FexExCup Playoffs takes a consolidated PGA TOUR field to TPC Boston as players fight for position, hoping to make it to the BMW Championship (field of 70) and ultimately the TOUR Championship (field of 30).
TPC Boston is revered by many Tour athletes as one of their favorite stops of the year. It presents a beautiful and challenging venue with a design that features raw, natural elements and stresses accuracy throughout the round. Around the course, missing the fairway is made even more daunting with intricate bunkering, rugged terrain, and rock formations awaiting errant shots. And even if you hit the fairway, course contours encourage significant run-out, which can send good shots into nasty situations.
Leading the FedExCup charge after his dramatic playoff victory last week is World No. 1, Dustin Johnson. Not far off his pace is fellow TaylorMade staffer Jon Rahm (5th) as well as Justin Rose (24th), Xander Schauffele (27th), Jason Day (29th), and Sergio Garcia (30th). And with Rory McIlroy and Si Woo Kim within the 70-player cut for the BMW Championship, the rest of the FedExCup Playoffs are shaping up to be a star-studded showdown.
By the playoffs, most players have locked in their equipment setup outside of the occasional tweak or two. However, with the recent launch of TaylorMade’s new P790 irons, many Tour players are working new P790 long irons into their bags.
Below are some golf equipment highlights from the practice rounds at TPC Boston:
Stay tuned this weekend and Team TaylorMade makes a playoff push at TPC Boston, and keep watching throughout the rest of the FedExCup Playoffs to see who comes away with the coveted trophy—and the even more coveted $10M championship prize that comes with it.
