This week it’s the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Massachusetts. Rickie Fowler defends after beating Henrik Stenson to the title last year.
Fowler now needs a wildcard pick from US Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III so will only have eyes for the win, especially after last week where he held the 54 hole lead and couldn’t quite get the job done.
In Europe, Danny Willett defends the European Masters at the stunning Crans-Sur-Sierre in Switzerland.
Each week the GM Tipster posts his betting tips. He’s picked 13 winners this season and stands at over 750 points up.

There are great prizes from Puma Cobra Golf to be won each and every week. This week’s prize is a Puma track jacket and the prize for the month is a Limited Edition USPGA Tour Bag and a pair of Ignite shoes.
Fantasy Picks for this week:
USA 1: Rickie Fowler – Rickie is now relying on a pick for the Ryder Cup, which he is probably in good standing for, however a victory this week would guarantee his ticket to Hazeltine.
USA 2: Patrick Reed – I’ve always felt the Texan has a game to match anyone in the world and, after his win last week, maybe this could be his time. Winning back-to-back doesn’t happen very often, but it seems to happen more in the Playoffs than at any other time of the year, there has been five back-to-back winners in FedEx Cup history – the last was Billy Horschel in 2014 who won the BMW then Tour Championship.
GB: Matt Fitzpatrick – Fitzpatrick lost out by a stroke in Switzerland last year, despite outscoring Danny Willett on Sunday by one with a 65. I fancy him to do well this week as he looks to pick up some more silverware heading into Hazeltine.
Australasia: Jason Day – The world number one was rather disgusted with his driving last week yet still managed a tie for 4th round a tricky course – evidence just how good his scrambling is. If he can get it in play this week, he will win.
South America: Emiliano Grillo – The Argentine is on a lovely run of form as he looks set to clinch the Rookie of the Year award on the PGA Tour. He finished in a tie for second last week, just one behind Patrick Reed, and also tied for 13th and 8th at the USPGA and Olympics. He’s up to sixth in the FedEx Cup and up to a career-high 25th in the world.
