WEEK 31, MATCH 1: Jim McCabe (13-15-2, $7,418,929) vs. Lance Ringler (15-14-1, $5,561,303)

JIM McCABE

Deutsche Bank Championship

Site: Norton, Mass.

Course: TPC Boston

Purse: $7.5 million

Winner’s share: $1.35 million

Best bet: Tiger Woods. It’s time, no? There was a brilliant start to the Barclays and a pretty impressive finish, so the edges were terrific. But like a bad steak the middle was very rough. Look for it to be played to perfection this week.

Ace up my sleeve: John Senden. Hey, he’s played in every round of this tournament since its 2003 debut. No one has noticed, perhaps, which is why he’s a sleeper.

LANCE RINGLER

Best Bet: Tiger Woods. A great first and final round last week at The Barclays points towards Woods soon being in contention again. Woods has had success in Boston - winning in 2006 and recording a pair of runner-up finishes.

Ace up my sleeve: Rickie Fowler. Early in Fowler’s career he has proven to be a player on a roller coaster ride - you never know what you may get, a top 10 or a missed cut. He has made three cuts in a row suggesting he may be ready to give us another weekend run. Let’s see if his form contiunes to progress from his previous three starts.


WEEK 31, MATCH 2: Jeff Babineau (13-16-1, $5,720,693) vs. Sean Martin (15-14-1, $7,424,254)

JEFF BABINEAU

Best bet: Matt Kuchar. Hey, playoffs are all about the hot guy, right? Hot goaltender? Hot pitcher? Who is hotter than the Kooch, who won last week and has been an absolute top-10 machine in 2010. He’s a very consistent ballstriker and tied for 15th at TPC Boston a year ago playing with roughly 30 percent of the confidence he’s harboring right now.

Ace up my sleeve: Jason Dufner. Missed the cut at Barclays (hey, there goes my hot man theory), but I’m going bigger picture here – that is, Dufner was impressive at the PGA Championship (T-5), and really has played under the radar all season long. In addition, he will feed off last year’s runner-up finish to Steve Stricker at the DBC.

SEAN MARTIN

Best bet: Matt Kuchar. Kuchar’s consistency this season is pretty incredible. In 22 starts, he has 10 top-10s and 16 top-25s, including his victory last week at the Barclays. He’s finished in the top 10 in six of his past eight starts.

Ace up my sleeve: Brandt Snedeker. Snedeker has had a good two weeks, minus one poor round. He tied for eighth at the Wyndham, then shot a first-round 67 at Barclays. He missed the cut after a second-round 77, but that’s still 5 out of 6 rounds in the 60s. Snedeker has played well at the Deutsche Bank in the past two years, finishing 32nd and 27th.
