Sergio Garcia will wear a target on his back on Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, as the Spaniard will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the second FedEx Cup playoff event.
Here are some interesting pairings to watch for as the tournament features threesomes off both tees again due to potential bad weather:
9:30 a.m.: Phil Mickelson-Jordan Spieth-Harris English: Two young guns (Spieth, English) get a chance to play with one of the most popular players in PGA Tour history. Use it as a lesson, young ones.
9:30 a.m.: Rory McIlroy-Scott Stallings-Chris Stroud: It’ll be interesting to see Mickelson go off No. 1 and McIlroy go off No. 10. Where will the crowds go? Our bet is on Lefty, but McIlroy showed an improved game on Sunday with a 7-under 64 — his lowest round of the season.
10:10 a.m.: Tiger Woods-Ryan Moore-Richard H. Lee: Tiger went the wrong way on Sunday, playing very inconsistent golf. Will he find some momentum heading into the week off? He’ll likely be No. 1 in the FedEx standings regardless of outcome on Monday afternoon.
10:40 a.m.: Jason Day-Keegan Bradley-Matt Kuchar: This group could provide plenty of fireworks, with Day and Bradley providing excitement off the tee and Kuchar’s putting prowess.
11:20 a.m.: Steve Stricker-Jason Dufner-Roberto Castro: Stricker is looking for a spot on the Presidents Cup squad. Dufner is looking for a second win in less than a month. Castro is looking for his first win. Lots to play for here.
