NOTES: The PGA Tour heads to Massachusetts this week for the Deutsche Bank Championship. This is the second week of the FedExCup Playoffs. Last week, Hunter Mahan captured The Barclays and jumped from 62nd on the FedExCup points list to first. He leads world No. 1 Rory McIlroy by 466 points. He also moved back into the top-20 of the world rankings at No. 19. Taking advantage of the Labor Day holiday, this tournament starts on Friday and finishes Monday.

The top 100 players on the FedExCup points list qualified for this tournament. Dustin Johnson, Jason Dufner, Justin Rose, Graeme McDowell, Paul Casey and Sergio Garcia qualified but are not playing this week. The top 70 players on the points list qualify for the BMW Championship next week.

When this event was played in 2003, it marked the first time since 1998 that the PGA Tour was in the Boston area. The long-running tournament at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, Massachusetts, was dropped after 32 years.

Last year, Henrik Stenson shot rounds of 67-63-66-66 and secured a 2-stroke victory over Steve Stricker. Stenson finished 72 holes at a tournament record-tying 22-under-par 262. The Swede earned his third PGA Tour win, and first since 2009.

In 2012, McIlroy carded rounds of 65-65-67-67 to win by one stroke over Louis Oosthuizen. McIlroy finished at 20-under-par 264. It was his third of four wins in 2012.

In 2010, Charley Hoffman fired a 9-under 62 in the final round to roll to a 5-stroke win over Jason Day, Luke Donald and Geoff Ogilvy. Hoffman missed the course record at the TPC Boston by a single stroke, but matched the tournament's scoring record of 22-under-par 262. The victory was Hoffman's second on the PGA Tour. He also won the 2007 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.

In 2008, Vijay Singh fired an 8-under 63 in the final round to run away with his second straight win in the playoffs. Singh, who won the first FedExCup playoff event the week before at The Barclays, took a commanding lead in the race for the $10 million payout that he did not relinquish. The Fijian, who also won this event in 2004, ended the tournament at 22-under-par 262. The victory for Singh was his 34th on the PGA Tour. He has not won a PGA Tour event since winning here in 2008.

Phil Mickelson got up and down for birdie on the 18th hole in the final round of the 2007 event and won. Mickelson's closing birdie gave him a 5-under 66 on the last day. He completed the championship at 16-under-par 268 to beat Tiger Woods, Arron Oberholser and Brett Wetterich by two shots. Mickelson won for the first time while playing alongside Woods.

In 2006, Woods overcame a 3-shot deficit to Singh to win his fifth straight start, shooting an 8-under 63 in the final round to beat his playing partner by two strokes. He ended at 16-under-par 268 for his third win in three weeks. Singh, who set the course record with a 61 in the third round, closed with a 3-under 68 to finish at 14-under 270. Woods would go on to win seven straight PGA Tour events.

The PGA Tour moves to Colorado next week for the third event of the playoffs. A field of 70 players will compete at the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills, where Zach Johnson will defend his title.
