Four players to keep an eye on at the Dell Technologies Championship

  • Phil Mickelson

Joining Scott in an early exit was fellow former world No.1 Rory McIlroy, who missed the cut as the defending champion for only the second time in his career.

Meanwhile, McIlroy also used his pre-tournament press conference to speak about his first month without caddie J.P. Fitzgerald. "So the confidence was just down a little bit", added Johnson, who is clearly over the back injury that forced him to withdraw from the Masters in April. "Felt like I didn't miss a shot. That's the thing - once you know you can make birdies on a golf course, it makes it easier to do that again".

The 29-year-old journeyman is trying to cap a resurgent 2017 season, led by his first win since 2012 in the Quicken Loans National back in July, with a surprise charge toward the playoff title.

Singh won in 2008 and 2004. Coming off of Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth's battle at The Northern Trust in Round One in NY, with The Patriots kicking off the NFL Season next Thursday, The RedSox in the heat of a pennant race, and The PGA Tour making its annual Labor Day Weekend stop in the area, the crowds should be in full throat.

"If anything, what's helped over these past few weeks is taking things in my stride; if I hit a bad shot, I forget about it, talk about something else and just try and keep going". The Dell is the second of four events in the FedExCup Playoffs. Danny Lee was among the cuts projected to fall out of the top 70 of the FedEx Cup standings needed to advance.

After last year's win in Boston, the Northern Irishman went on to clinch the $10 million bonus as he topped the standings after winning the season-ending Tour Championship.

That said, there are a lot of notable names in the chase pack, which includes 20 golfers within five shots of the top spot. Stenson has minor tightness in his knee, and doctors recommended rest. Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Aussie Adam Scott chose not to play last week at The Northern Trust but are back in action this week.

Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas comprised the most notable grouping for Rounds 1-2.

As for Jason Day, the Australian struggled to a four-over-par 75. McIlroy has performed well at TPC Boston in the past, as he won the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston a year ago on his way to winning the 2016 FedExCup Playoffs.
