The Deutsche Bank Championship is turning out to be a birdie-fest for many of the top players on the tour.
Heading into the final round at Boston TPC, Sergio Garcia is on top of the leaderboard with a score of 19 under par. By the time the championship is decided Monday, the winner could be at 25 under par or lower.
Wet conditions in the third round gave Garcia, Henrik Stenson, Graham DeLaet and Jason Dufner a chance to have their way on the course.
If there is more wet weather or if the course fails to dry out, the final round may feature record-setting scoring.
Here's a look at the eight golfers who have the best chance to win and the odds they will carry into the final round.
Where He Stands: Ian Poulter fired a 66 in the third round and he is 13 under par for the tournament. He is six strokes behind leader Garcia, in eighth place.
Winning Formula: It's going to be a daunting task for Poulter to overcome his deficit and win the Deutsche Bank Championship. It's not the six-stroke deficit that is the problem. It's that golfers are scoring extremely well and it doesn't seem likely that Garcia and the other golfers ahead of Poulter will drop a bunch of shots in the final round.
If Poulter is going to have a chance, he'll need to open up with a string of birdies and then catch a few breaks and good bounces on the course.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 18-1
Where He Stands: Kevin Stadler fired a 64 in the third round and he is 14 under par for the tournament. He is five strokes behind Garcia, in seventh place.
Winning Formula: Stadler has plenty of momentum after his superb performance in the third round and he is clearly not bothered by the spotlight. He played with Tiger Woods in the third round and never once seemed bothered or intimidated.
Stadler should continue with his excellent play and he will need to continue with his red-hot putter. He is averaging 1.571 putts per hole, the third-best figure in the tournament.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 14-1
Where He Stands: After back-to-back rounds of 65 during the first two days of the tournament, Roberto Castro came back to the pack a little bit with a 68 in the third round. He is 15 under par and tied for fifth with PGA champion Jason Dufner.
Winning Formula: Castro may have a difficult time sleeping the night before the final round of the tournament. He has never won on the PGA Tour and he is four shots off the lead. He was not quite as sharp in the third round as he had been earlier.
He had an excellent front nine with a three-under-par 33, but he shot an even-par 35 on the back nine. He'll need a sharp start in the final round to have a legitimate chance at catching Garcia.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 25-1 (due to being in uncharted territory.)
Where He Stands: Dufner has been impressively consistent in the DBC, firing a 66 in each of the three rounds. He is tied with Castro for fifth place at 15 under par.
Winning Formula: Dufner is one of the coolest customers on the tour and he is near the top of his game. He won the PGA Championship title last month and he is not going to be intimidated on his current stage. Dufner is hitting 66.7 percent of his fairways, a figure that ranks 42nd among all golfers in the field. If he can pick up the accuracy just a bit he will have an excellent chance of the title.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 12-1
Where He Stands: Steve Stricker threw himself into the mix with a remarkable 63 in the third round. He's three strokes behind Garcia and is tied with DeLaet for third place with a score of 16 under par.
Winning Formula: Stricker seems like a calm and composed golfer who doesn't want to get too high or too low. However, after his superb third round, he has to be pumped up going into the final day with a chance to earn a victory in the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Stricker closed with an eagle, and he needs to take the momentum of that finish into the start of the final round. He also needs to display his excellent putting stroke so he can reel off some early birdies to have a legitimate chance to win.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 10-1
Where He Stands: DeLaet moved into contention after firing a brilliant 62 in the third round. He started off with a bogey on the first hole, and then fired five birdies throughout the rest of the front nine and five more on the back nine. He is tied for third with Stricker.
Winning Formula: DeLaet has been one of the most consistent golfers on the tour this year. He has never won on tour, so a victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship would be a crowning moment in his career.
DeLaet has had an excellent year, finishing in the top 10 six times. He has to believe he is getting closer to his maiden win, and he should go into the final round believing he has the talent to win. If he can show the same resilience as the third round, he should have an excellent chance to win.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 8-1
Where He Stands: Stenson is in second place, two strokes behind Garcia with a score of 17 under par. He fired a 66 in the third round and he will have a chance to run down the tournament leader.
Winning Formula: Stenson has been one of the hotter golfers on the tour this year. He has three second-place finishes in 2013 and he will try to pick up his first victory of the year and the third PGA tour win of his career.
He will have a good chance of winning if he just continues playing his game. That includes continuing to hit greens in regulation, which he has done 85.19 percent of the time in the DBC. That figure leads all golfers in the field.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 6-1
Where He Stands: Garcia is playing his best golf of the year and leads on 19 under par. He shot a six-under-par 65 in the third round and he has a two-stroke lead over Stenson heading into the final round.
Winning Formula: He has been amazingly consistent through the first three rounds, shooting 65-64-65. There will be tremendous focus and pressure on Garcia as he tries to win for the first time on the PGA tour since his victory in the Wyndham Classic in August, 2012.
Garcia's all-around game has been impressive throughout the DBC, but his putting has been sensational. He ranks first with an average of 1.556 putts per hole. Despite his consistency on the greens, it won't be easy for Garcia to close out the championship. Only one of the last seven 54-hole leaders at the DBC—Steve Stricker in 2009—has gone on to win the event.
Odds He'll Win DBC: 5-2
