THE DELL TECHNOLOGIES CHAMPIONSIHP hot sheet offers updates from the PGA TOUR and the Dell Technologies Championship, the second event of the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Playoffs, played this year at TPC Boston,
August 31- September 3.
Although Justin Thomas, the defending champion of the Dell Technologies Championship, lasted just four weeks in his first stay at No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking after Dustin Johnson regained No. 1 with a six-shot victory at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Thomas remains No. 1 in the FedExCup standings heading into the U.S. Open. And as Thomas knows so well…only one No. 1 spot at the end of the FedExCup Playoffs comes with $10 million. A win in Boston has typically been a good recipe for getting that paper, too, with each of the last two Dell Technologies Championship winners – Rory McIlroy and Thomas – also winning the FedExCup in the same year.
What’s the only thing better than a front-row seat at the Dell Technologies Championship? Having a full belly in your front-row seat at the Dell Technologies Championship! That’s exactly what you can get your dad this Father’s Day with the Ruth’s Chris Golf Lovers’ Package ($150), which includes two HarborOne Champions Club tickets and two Ruth’s Chris steak sandwiches at the tournament ($206 value).
Just make sure and get that sandwich down between shots, so you have room to yell when 2006 champion Tiger Woods inevitably does Tiger Woods things in his first return to Boston since 2013.
Before arriving at Shinnecock for the season’s second major, the U.S. Open, Dustin Johnson dunked his way into the No. 1 spot in the Official World Ranking with a win at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Don’t worry, we’re not a big fan of putters (or shoes) either, DJ.
As easy as DJ made it look last week, nothing is ever easy at the U.S. Open, and when it comes to the second major, the one that has proven so elusive for Phil Mickelson in his chase for the Grand Slam, anything can happen. Like a one-legged victory. Or a 15-shot victory. But Woods, a three-time U.S. Open winner, has a host of younger superstars trying to hold off the 79-time PGA TOUR winner and secure their second U.S. Open title – Rory McIlroy (2011), Justin Rose (2013), Jordan Spieth (2015), Dustin Johnson (2016), and Brooks Koepka (2017).
What’s better than watching golf at TPC Boston during Labor Day Weekend? Watching the FedExCup Playoffs action unfold inside the ropes as a volunteer at the Dell Technologies Championship. Volunteers receive a wicked cool swag bag as their hard work and dedication are essential to the tournament’s success year after year and we couldn’t do it without all 1,400 of them. With over 20 different volunteer committees, there’s something for everyone. Sign up soon because who knows – maybe you can meet your future soulmate?
Want a chance to cross off an item on your bucket list? Look no further than the Dell Technologies Championship Pro-Am, where you’ll be paired for 18 holes with a PGA TOUR player. And you just never know who you might get paired up with…As legendary rocker Bob Seger found out almost a decade ago, there’s no “comfort in the crowd” when you’re playing with Tiger, but oh, what a thrill it is!
If you need more help with a ring than your swing though, you just might be able to get that too during the Pro-Am. Potentially even from a reigning FedExCup champion?
