Matteson moves in front

At 97th in the FedExCup standings, Troy Matteson needs a good finish to advance in the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup. He’s certainly off to a good start after an opening-round 65 at TPC Boston.

If he continues to play well this week the payoff could be big -- he’s currently projected to move up to third in the FedExCup standings.

Now, only once before has Matteson advanced beyond the Deutsche Bank Championship. Friday, though, he needed just 25 putts en route to seven birdies and one bogey.

The flip side is that Matteson has just two top-10s this season, so the big question is if he can hold onto his lead. The closest he came to winning this year was a playoff loss in Puerto Rico.
