Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Dustin Johnson torches the field for 11-stroke win at TPC Boston

The first postseason tournament on the PGA TOUR didn’t have much drama as Johnson ($10,400; 172 DKFP) fired an eight-under-par 63 in the Final Round to cruise to a comfortable victory. His 30-under-par score for the tournament gave him a dominant 11-stroke win over Harris English ($7,600; 130.5 DKFP), who finished solo-second and Daniel Berger ($8,900; 117.5 DKFP) who finished third. The top five was rounded out by Kevin Kisner ($7,600; 103.5 DKFP) and Scottie Sheffler ($8,100; 111.0 DKFP) who parlayed his 59 earlier in the week to his second straight top-five finish. The week belonged to Johnson, though, who has now won twice this season and enters the final two events of the season lined up for a big finish. - Zach Thompson


Russell Henley is one of six to qualify for the BMW Championship

The PGA Tour postseason continues next week with the BMW Championship, and six players improved their FedExCup ranking enough to move into the top 70 and advance. No one came from further back than Henley ($7,300; 100.5 DKFP) who improved from No. 101 to No. 61 with his T8, which was his third straight top-10 finish. Robby Shelton ($6,000; 96.5 DKFP), Alex Noren ($7,100; 101 DKFP), Harry Higgs ($6,000; 94 DKFP) and Jason Kokrak ($5,800; 92 DKFP) also earned their way to next week, along with Louis Oosthuizen ($7,500; 97 DKFP) who made it to next week on the number by moving up to No. 70. Doc Redman, Sung Kang, Denny McCarthy, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Norlander, and Xinjun Zhang fell out of the top 70 and won’t play the BMW next week. - Zach Thompson



Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Dustin Johnson 22-under par at THE NORTHERN TRUST

Johnson ($10,400; 132.5 DKFP) is tearing up the golf course this week. After shooting a 60 yesterday, he followed it up with a seven-under par 64 today. This gives him a sizable five-stroke lead going into Sunday. The way Johnson is currently playing, he shouldn’t have too much of an issue running away with the tournament Sunday. As a -560 favorite to win the tournament on DraftKings Sportsbook, oddsmakers certainly don’t give anybody other than Johnson a realistic chance to win. - Greg Ehrenberg


Tyrrell Hatton shoots low round on Saturday at THE NORTHERN TRUST

Hatton ($8,000) finished with the lowest score at THE NORTHERN TRUST on Saturday. He shot an eight-under-par 63, which brings his score to 12-under-par for the tournament. He’s currently tied for ninth place, but he trails leader Dustin Johnson ($10,400) by 10 strokes heading into the final round. Johnson holds a five-shot lead over Harris English ($7,600) and Scottie Scheffler ($8,100), who are currently tied for second at 17-under-par. That is a massive lead to take into the final round, and Johnson is unsurprisingly a -560 favorite on the DraftKings Sportsbook. - Matt LaMarca



Round 2 Recap — Friday

Dustin Johnson holds two-shot lead after second round of THE NORTHERN TRUST

Johnson ($10,400) shot an 11-under-par 60 on Friday, which vaulted him into first place at the Northern Trust. He came out of the gates scorching hot, shooting a ridiculous nine-under-par through his first eight holes. He finished with two eagles and five birdies over that time frame and followed it up with birdies on the 10th and 11th holes. He played the final seven holes at even par but he threatened to break the PGA TOUR record of 58 set by Jim Furyk at the Travelers Championship in 2016. Believe it or not, Johnson didn’t even have the lowest round on Friday. Scottie Scheffler ($8,100) shot a 12-under-par 59 to grab that honor and he currently sits two shots back of Johnson in second. — Matt LaMarca


Rookie Scottie Scheffler shoots a scorching 59 on Friday

Scheffler ($8,100) is playing in the PGA Tour’s postseason for the first time in his career, and the 24-year-old Texan made quite a first impression with a 59 on Friday in the second round of THE NORTHERN TRUST at TPC Boston. Scheffler’s round was just the 12th round under 60 in the history of the Tour and vaulted him into a share for the lead when his round concluded. He made 12 birdies in his bogey-free round and had three different streaks of three-straight birdies. Scheffler had a four-foot putt on 18 to finish up his 59, and after knocking it in, will look to stay in contention this weekend to claim his first PGA Tour win. — Zach Thompson

Round 1 Recap — Thursday



First day of THE NORTHERN TRUST ends with four-way tie for first

Not only are four golfers tied for first, none of the names are players we expected to be leading. Cameron Davis ($6,300; 58.0 DKFP), Harris English ($7,600; 65.0 DKFP), Russell Henley ($7,300; 62.0 DKFP) and Kevin Streelman ($6,700; 63.5 DKFP) all shot 7-under on Thursday. The pricing on these guys tells the whole story, and at least in the early going, it looks like this might have been a good week to leave salary on the table. There isn’t a single golfer priced over $7.8K currently inside of the top 10. The top performing expensive golfer on the leaderboard is Dustin Johnson ($10,400; 29.5 DKFP) and he’s in a tie for 20th. — Greg Ehrenberg
