McIlroy facing a missed cut at TPC Boston

Phil Mickelson reveals new medical condition, declines to specify it

Grouped with Spieth and US PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas for the first two rounds, Johnson holed five birdies and an eagle to set the tone at TPC Boston. The Dell Technologies Championship, formerly known as the Deutsche Bank Championship takes place in Norton, Massachusetts at the Par-71, 7,342 yard TPC Boston.

One of the biggest stories heading into the FedExCup Playoffs is Rory McIlroy.

He said he will play through the playoffs before competing once more in Europe, then shutting it down for a while, giving the ribs that cost him time this season a chance to completely heal.

The 40-year-old went on to finish second in the BMW Championship the following week and fourth in the Tour Championship in Atlanta, where McIlroy defeated Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell in a play-off.

When Rahm left the U.S. Open in 2016, he was No. 551 in the OWGR.

McIlroy won here past year and in 2012 to become one of just two players, along with Fiji's Vijay Singh (2004, 2008) to win this event a few times.

Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed and Louis Oosthuizen are also at 4 under for the tournament. And it has been five years since Woods has played.

Ben Crane is also playing the Web.com Tour Finals, along with 17 other past PGA Tour winners, a list that includes Stuart Appleby, Matt Jones and Ken Duke. Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Aussie Adam Scott chose not to play last week at The Northern Trust but are back in action this week.

JT captures the 2017 PGA Championship! He made a great charge on Sunday to bookend an impressive opening round to snag The Northern Trust in a playoff over Spieth. Jordan Spieth has had a very impressive year to say the least. Stenson won the tournament in 2013 and was runner-up in 2015. Spieth has been in the hunt in numerous events this season, finishing in the top 10 six times.

"It would just be nice to get a win before I shut it down for a while".

The 2013 Masters champion missed the cut at four-over 146 after a 75 and will not make it to the third leg for just the third time in his career. PGA champion Justin Thomas made 16 pars in his round of 71, while The Open victor, Jordan Spieth, who lost to Johnson in a sudden-death playoff last week didn't make a birdie until his 13th hole and shot 72.

"You can tell it's a ball-striker's course because on every green, there's little sections for the pin to be at, right". Considering how hot as Fowler has been this year, expect to see him in the leaderboards not only in the Dell Technologies Championship, but also down the stretch in the FedExCup Playoffs.

It was a wonderful duel between two of the biggest stars in golf.

World number four McIlroy has been hit with injury this year and will be shutting things down in due course but could not resist defending his title at TPC Boston starting on Friday in the second of the PGA Tour's four lucrative playoff events.
