Local flavor makes it a special week for Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton.
It was only fitting that the biggest Deutsche Bank Championship in the nine-year history of the golf tournament would also be the longest. A terrific battle on the back nine between Webb Simpson and Chev Reavie resulted in some exciting moments on the 18th hole and led to a two-hole playoff won by Simpson with a birdie on the 17th. Monday marked the first playoff in DBC history and concluded a terrific week, where the weather held off just long enough to complete the tournament. The week featured the homecoming of Keegan Bradley, the Hopkinton High graduate and former Hiller who was all over the place this week after winning the PGA Championship. After missing the cut at the hurricane-shortened Barclays last week in New Jersey, Bradley …
Simpson beats Reavie in first Deutsche Bank Championship playoff.
It is amazing how three putts, albeit three extremely clutch putts, has changed the life of Webb Simpson. With Chez Reavie holding a two-shot advantage during the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday at TPC Boston in Norton, Simpson approached the 18th green just looking for an opportunity to get a little closer and maybe force a playoff. The 26-year old then buried a putt from 30 feet away to finish the first 72 holes at 15-under and move within one shot of Reavie. “I didn’t know that he birdied 16 until I was on the green on 18,” said Simpson. “I was reading my putt and I glanced at the leader board. I saw he was at 16. It just gave me more reason to try to make it. And then to make that putt, I thought that putt in …
Final round score of 74 takes two-round leader out of contention.
With his 7-under par round of 64 during the second round and a 1-under par 70 during the third round, Bubba Watson was near or atop the leader board at the Deutsche Bank Championship for the better part of two days. That momentum continued into the early stages of the final round on Monday as he birdied the second hole to move to 12-under par for the tournament. But everything apart for Watson at that point as he shot 6-over par from there before somewhat saving his round with an eagle on the 18th hole. Watson finished the final round with an eagle, two birdies, eight pars and seven bogeys. Those seven bogeys matched the combined total he had over the first three days. The beginning of the end for Watson came on the fourth hole, when he …

But it was really calm and nice when we played this morning.” Robert Karlsson, teeing off at 9 a.m., shot a 7-under par 64, while 2010 DBC champion Charley Hoffman (8 a.m.) and Camilo Villegas (7:30 a.m.) each shot 6-under par 65s.
