The second stop of the FedEx Cup Playoffs wraps around the holiday weekend, as the Deutsche Bank Championship tees off Friday and concludes on Labor Day. The champion here has gone 20-below-par or better in three of the past five years, and this year should be a shootout as well. Here’s a look at the Best Bets…
Steve Stricker (30/1): The semi-retired Stricker is back in action for the first time since the PGA Championship. He’s still looking for his first victory of 2013, but he’s posted five top-10's and seven top-15's among his 10 starts so far this season, including 13th or better in each of his past four starts. In 10 career starts in Norton, he has four top-10's including his victory in 2009.
Tiger Woods (13/2): Woods came up just short in Jersey last week, finishing in a pack of four runner-ups, one stroke behind Adam Scott. So it’s been five wins and one runner-up among his eight non-major stroke play Tour events this season.
Dustin Johnson (25/1): Johnson is coming off a disappointing missed cut at The Barclays, but he has the kind of distance to overpower this course. He finished fourth here both last year and in 2009. And despite last week’s disappointment, he still has two top-10's in his past four starts.
Adam Scott (10/1): Last week in Jersey he got his first win since the Masters, continuing his strong 2013. It was his second straight top-5 showing, and his third in four starts. The Aussie has gone top-10 at TPC Boston in each of the past three years and won the inaugural tournament in 2003.
Luke Donald (40/1): It’s been a disappointing year for Donald, who’s still in search of his first win of 2013. But he has seven top-20's on the year, and he’s finished top-3 in two of the past three years here.
