Rory McIlroy upbeat ahead of title defence in Boston

Rory McIlroy upbeat ahead of title defence in Boston

He added two more birdies and one bogey, before reaching the 18th hole, where he hit a 220-yard 7-iron to five feet to set up an eagle on the par 5. And I believe, after Colonial, I got into the top 10 in the world. "And it went his way. This is the best energy I've had throughout the round and the best focus, the first time I've been able to visualize". "And this is one I wish went my way". At No. 64 in the FedEx Cup, his season might be over after he took a 12 on the par-5 second hole.

A rivalry in the making?

Johnson won last week's playoff opening tournament, snapping a five month winless drought which was exacerbated by a back injury. That's important because those five players only have to win the Tour Championship to claim the $10 million bonus. Rahm's round was good enough to propel him into sole possession of first place at 9 under par heading into Sunday's third round.

Now that he finally has won again, Dustin Johnson is starting to look as risky as ever.

After losing in a playoff in The Northern Trust, Jordan Spieth enters the Dell Technologies Championship with a FedExCup playoff ranking of three. Your first two months' dues will be donated to one of two charities: Special Olympics or The First Tee!

Justin Thomas' PGA Championship win was a big day for "bro" golf.

And the world number one has refused to rule out another winning streak in the FedEx Cup play-offs.

Spieth: Three victories, including the British Open.




No stretch better encapsulated the current world No. 5's psychological growth than TPC's final three holes - his seventh, eighth, and ninth of the day.

Spieth said if none of the four doing anything special the rest of the way, Thomas probably wins.

In his final tournament before the President's Cup picks, Phil Mickelson also enjoyed a welcome return to form.

Mickelson is at No. 18.

Canadian Hadwin now sits in last place amongst those trying to automatically qualify for the Presidents Cup International side so a continuation of this form will guarantee him a place in the side in a month's time. No one beyond Chappell has really done anything lately to be an obvious choice for US captain Steve Stricker.

Mickelson is now 18th in the points race that concludes this week, and barring a victory at TPC Boston, he's unlikely to make the team on points. 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.

In a year that has seen its up and downs through 27 events, with a trio of top-10 finishes and $1,170,668 in earnings, McGirt welcomes the offseason. "This is kind of what, you know - it made me complacent of what I had accomplished all year". Adam Scott's 75 also resulted in a missed cut that projects him to drop from 73rd to 83rd on the list. He wasn't even going to be at the TPC Boston until his second child, a son, was born a little earlier than expected.

Elsewhere on the course, Lucas Glover and Grayson Murray each made a hole-in-one that the PGA Tour estimated were 65 seconds apart.
