Golf News: Deutsche Bank Championship - 3rd round thoughts

FedEx Cup Playoff #2

Top 5 - After the 3rd round:

Brett Wetterich -5
-13 51
Arron Oberholser -5
-12 67
Phil Mickelson -3
-11 5
Tiger Woods -4
-10 4
Aaron Baddeley -1
-10 21

Well a short post today before a complete wrap up of the event tomorrow. I originally said that the longer hitters would be the ones to benefit on this course and from the early indications that seems to be holding true. Out of the top 5 players so far 4 are genuinely long hitters. I think this event will be won by Tiger or Mickelson, although I wouldn't discount Angel Cabrera at -9. Golf is a very strange game at times!

The top two Brett Wetterich and Arron Oberholser will be trying to finish as close to the top as possible and if this happens they could surge forward (aprrox 40-50 places) in the FedEx cup standings and possibly make the top 30. It will certainly be an interesting last round tomorrow.
