TPC Boston is a 7,216 yard Par 71 and was originally designed by Arnold Palmer. In 2007 Gil Hanse redesigned the course with PGA Tour player Brad Faxon serving as player consultant. It is a long but easy layout with several doglegs and fast greens that are larger than the Tour average.

Usually the easiest track of the post season playoffs the average winning score since 2007 is -18 which means it is not a catch-up course. Henrik Stenson finished on -22 (262) when he won here in 2013.

Players will have to hit the ground running so a good place to start is Birdie Average. With a premium on scoring, Par 5 Performance will also be important on the gettable Par 5’s. A player’s iron-play will need to be dialled in and hitting a high percentage of greens in regulation is a must.

Last year’s winner, Rory McIlroy, finished the week 1st for both Driving Distance and Putting Average. He came from six strokes back of the final round leader, Paul Casey, shooting a -6 (65) to Casey’s 73 to win by two. McIlroy was 7th in Strokes Gained Putting for the week and topped the field in Birdies shooting 24 in total.

In 2015 Rickie Fowler shot a 2-under back nine in the final round to overtake Henrik Stenson and beat him by one stroke. He won with superb putting and approach shots gaining 3.7 strokes per round against the field. Putting contributed 48 percent of the gain (2nd) and approach shots contributing 43 percent (5th).

This is one those weeks to approach with caution. With such a strong field playing on a relatively easy track it is hard to separate a likely winner from the pack. Best advice might be to have a bet in running after 18 | 36 holes have completed.
