The world's finest golfers will battle it out Labor Day weekend at the Deutsche Bank Championship, home of the second leg of the PGA TOUR's FedExCup Playoffs. The #DBChampionship plays host to the 100 top players in the FedEx rankings at a fan-friendly venue providing a must-attend golf experience. Below are four or our "must do's" at this year's Deutsche Bank Championship:
Splashes on 16
The 16th hole at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass. is the spot for fan's to see the championship's top moments. Spectators can witness not as rowdy as the 16th at the Waste Management Open in Phoenix, the fans get rowdy for both shots that land close to the pin or make a big splash, literally. Sitting between the 16th green and the 17th tee gives you the best of both worlds to see two holes at once.
Driving the green on hole #4
The 4th hole at TPC Boston is a 298-yard par-4 giving players the opportunity to drive the green and go for an eagle. Although the hole is very short, the small, tricky green provides players a difficult challenge after their tee shot. Will your favorite player go for the green or lay up?
Become a Champion in the spectator commons
The spectator commons at the #DBChampionship is located to the left of the clubhouse behind the 18th green. Two years ago I won a free golf bag from Michelob Ultra by draining a 20-foot putt. I got a few funny looks carrying it around that day, but it made for a good story!
18th hole grandstands
The 18th at TPC Boston is a reachable par 5, allowing players to make an eagle in front of the biggest crowd of the day. Sit in the grandstands to watch the big hitters for for the green in two and see the champion capture the Wedgewood Trophy.
If you are attending the championship this year, I hope these four things to do at the Deutsche Bank Championship will be helpful for you. Also, did you know college students can get tickets to the championship for $25 for any day and members of the military can get free tickets?
