We head to Massachusetts for the first time this year for the Dell Technologies Championship, the second event of the playoffs. This is one of the newer events that debuted back in 2003, and the TPC Boston has been very kind to golfers who often make the course look easy. With another loaded field, there’s chances to make big money.
Here are five golfers to consider throwing on your card this week.

Dustin Johnson - Dustin Johnson is the overall favorite this week, but you can still get him at a very respectable +800 to win the event. Despite some poor holes last week, Johnson had his chances to wi the Northern Trust. Instead, Johnson finished 11th, which means he has top-20 finishes in nine of his last 11 events. Johnson has been the best and most consistent player this year, and he’s finished in the top-20 in three of his last five appearances at the Dell Technologies Championship. You have to love a player who still has chances to win even when he’s not playing at his complete best.
Justin Rose - Justin Rose is coming off his first missed cut since last years PGA Championship, which means it’s been just over a year since he didn’t make the weekend. Rose has still finished in the top-10 in eight of 14 times making the cut, and he’s fourth in birdie average and third in scoring average. Rose also finished 10th last year in this event and had a top-20 finish back in 2013. Rose should be a favorite to win this weekend based on his consistency, and the fact you can get him at +2500, makes him a tough player to turn down.
Adam Scott - Adam Scott has put together back-to-back top-five finishes and has finished double-digit strokes under par in four of his last nine events. Few are playing as well as Scott at the moment, and he’s currently seventh in greens in regulation percentage. Scott also has success at the TPC Boston, which includes three top-10 finishes here since 2011, and his most recent coming in 2016. There’s reasons to consider Scott for his first win about a year and a half, especially when getting +2800 odds.
Hideki Matsuyama - Hideki Matsuyama has put together top-20 finishes in five of his last eight events, which includes the Wyndham Championship and the Northern Trust. Matsuyama has finished at least four strokes under par in each of his last three events and is second in eagles (holes per). Matsuyama also has three straight top-25 finishes at the TPC Boston, so you can expect another solid showing from the 26-year-old from Japan. Matsuyama and +3500 odds is worth a look.
Henrik Stenson - Henrik Stenson is coming off quite a showing at the Wyndham Championship when he was -13 to par, and he’s currently first in driving accuracy percentage and greens in regulation percentage. Stenson has missed the cut just once since Houston and it’s almost just bad luck that he doesn’t have a victory yet. Well, Stenson has enjoyed this course, as he won here in 2013 and finished runner-up in 2015. There’s a chance Stenson ends the drought his week, so I’ll give him a play at +3300 odds.
