As the FedExCup 2014 continues, all the golfers in the 100-man Deutsche Bank Championship field are hoping for a great week at TPC Boston. Some golfers, however, need an inspired performance more than others.
Most significantly, only 70 of the 100 golfers will make it through to the third playoff event, the BMW Championship. Notable players such as Geoff Ogilvy, Vijay Singh and Ian Poulter are among those who really need a great week in Boston. Without a brilliant showing, all three could see their seasons come to an end.
Beyond those who are most desperately hoping for a great week, a handful of players need a strong outing to position themselves ahead of the Tour Championship.
And while it may not seem like it to the casual observer, Rory McIlroy needs a great showing at TPC Boston.
Read on to find out why and to see who else has to have a great week and what the golfers in question need to do in Boston to move on in the playoffs.
