Venue

Known as the Deutsche Bank Championship since it was first played in 2003, the Dell Technologies Championship 2017 takes place at the TPC Boston in Norton, Massachusetts, over the Labor Day weekend, with play getting under way on Friday and continuing through to Monday. At 7,214 yards, the par 71 layout is not one of the longest on tour, and it relies on strategic bunker placements and contoured greens for protection, placing an emphasis on accuracy from the tee rather than distance. Last year Rory McIlroy became only the second two-time winner of this event, sharing the honour with Vijay Singh, while other recent champions include Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson. The course record total is 22-under-par, shared by Singh, Stenson and Charley Hoffman, the 2010 winner.

Favourites

Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth contested a play-off at the Northern Trust event on Sunday and they are the leading pair in the betting for this tournament. Johnson, who came back from four shots behind in the final round to claim the title in New York, is the slight favourite at best odds of 15/2 with Betfair and Paddy Power – who both offer 7 places each-way. Both are 8/1 about Open champion Spieth, while Hideki Matsuyama can be backed at 14/1 and Jason Day and Rickie Fowler at 16s.

Tips

It’s been a great year for CHARLEY HOFFMAN, who has risen from a year-end rank of 66 up to 22nd in the world thanks to a string of good results. He’s finished in the top three on three of his last seven starts and in the top 20 in six of the last eight, while he hasn’t missed a cut since the Heritage back in April. He’s a former winner of this event and the course record holder, so he ought to be shorter than the 50/1 with 6 places on offer with Sky Bet.

KEVIN CHAPPELL shared sixth place at the Northern Trust to secure his second top 10 in an impressive recent run of performances and his previous form at this venue gives cause for plenty of optimism too. The world number 26 tied for eighth place at this tournament last year having been equal 12th a year earlier and after last week’s effort at Glen Oaks he looks a great each-way pick at the stand-out odds of 45/1 with Bet365.

PATRICK REED is another man who comes into this tournament in good form having finished in a share of second place at the PGA Championship earlier this month – his best major result to date. Like Chappell he also has some good performances at the TPC Boston to draw on, finishing in fourth and fifth place in the last two editions. He’s just 25/1 in places, but Betfred make him a 40/1 chance and surely that price that won’t last until Friday.
