The second event of the FedEx Playoffs is underway and the top 100 players in the race will be looking to go low in order to capture the Deutsche Bank Championship. The 7,241, par-72 TPC Boston layout in Norton, Massachusetts is designed with wide fairways and many risk-reward holes, forcing the players to stay aggressive in hopes of keeping pace with the leaders.
"If you're in position out here, you can be aggressive...everybody knows you're going to have to go out and make birdies" said former champion and Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman, who ranks 33rd on the FedEx Cup points list.
"You've got to get to 20-something under. There are guys shooting 60, 61, 62, every year out here"
Points leader and Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan realizes that while there are many opportunities to be make birdies, players still need to properly plan and execute.
"The wind blowing right now should dry out the course quite a bit and dry out the greens. We'll really have to think about our approach shots and how we want to come into the greens, and angles become very important"
In order to shoot low scores, golfers need complete control and confidence in their equipment, especially their golf ball.
BY THE NUMBERS: 2014 DEUTSCHE BANK CHAMPIONSHIP
This week at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball choice with 54 players in the field trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That’s more than four times the nearest competitor with 13 and more than all competitors combined.
Titleist was also the top choice in the iron (25) and approach, sand and lob wedge (84) categories.

Titleist Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan capped off a week of solid play at Ridgewood Country Club by firing a final round 65 to claim a two shot victory at The Barclays. Hunter carded seven birdies and only one bogey during his final round as he jumped up the leaderboard to top off a four-round total of 14-under-par 270.
The win vaults Mahan to the top of the FedEx Cup Playoffs points list heading into the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Hunter's play this week was highlighted by a number of clutch putts but before reaching for his putter, he relied on controlling his golf ball off the tee and into the greens to set up his scoring opportunities. Helping him along the way to hitting a field-leading 80.6% of his greens in regulation this week has been Hunter's laser-focused approach to his preparation.
"I don't want to waste a shot anywhere, on the range, on the putting green, on a chipping green, on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday," said Mahan during his post-round press conference.
"It's not about putting the time in. It's about putting the right time and putting the real focus on to every shot, because I think that's what great players do. They don't waste a second of practice time when they are out on the golf course."
Great advice for all golfers. And for Hunter, the hard work certainly paid off this week.
WEEKEND HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDWIDE PROFESSIONAL TOURS:
Jamie Donaldson (Pro V1x) closed with a 4-under-par 68 to overcome a two shot deficit and post a 14-under-par victory total to claim the D+D Real Czech Masters. The victory was the third of his career and also helped secure him a position on the European Ryder Cup team.

It’s a fact. Every golfer has more than one swing speed.
Think about the last round of golf you played and you’ll quickly realize that you hit a number of different shots all at varying swing speeds.
From a half-wedge or a full-wedge shot, to an approach shot with a 5-iron or 8-iron, or a tee shot, every shot is going to have a different swing speed. This is an important concept of golf ball development and it’s why we design golf balls to perform on every shot.
“A golf ball must perform for all golfers of all swing speeds on all shots,” says Titleist Golf Ball Fitting Manager Mike Rich.
“Titleist golf balls perform for all swing speeds on all shots.”
At Titleist, we also spend a lot of time with golfers of all skill levels testing golf balls and capturing launch condition data to help us learn even more about all of the different shots that golfers are hitting throughout their rounds.
It’s these experiences working with real golfers and listening to them talk about what they are looking for in golf ball performance that fuels our passion to help golfers shoot lower scores.

Picture this. It’s a beautiful day on the golf course. You’ve just split the fairway with your tee shot. You walk up to your golf ball, check the distance to the pin, do a couple of quick calculations in your head and find yourself in-between clubs.
Sound familiar? It’s a fairly common scenario on the course for many golfers, so we went out to the PGA Tour to get some advice on how to approach the next shot.
While the final execution of the shot varies from player to player, one common thread we heard from all players is that you have to take in all of the factors including pin placement, course conditions, the wind and where the trouble is before committing to the shot.
Whether you’re like Graham DeLaet and prefer to choke-up on the grip to control distance or prefer to take an aggressive approach into the ball like Jimmy Walker, the ultimate key is making a confident swing and trusting your decision.
Hunter Mahan sums it up nicely.
“You've got to go with comfort. You've got to know what feels good to you and what club you know you can get it there.”
Check out the video above for more advice from Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Jason Dufner, Lee Westwood, Matt Jones and Louis Oosthuizen and see how you can work their approach into your game.

There are few things in golf more frustrating than hitting a perfect drive only to find your ball lying in the middle of a deep divot. But this moment of bad luck doesn't have to result in a poor score.
In this tip, Titleist Staff Professional Martin Hall shows us how the proper setup and technique can turn misfortune into opportunity.
A few of Martin's keys for creating solid contact from this tricky lie:
1. Set up with the ball back in the stance to help promote a steeper angle of attack.
2. Open your stance to help promote an aggressive turn through the shot.
3. And focus on creating wristhinge on the take away to ensure a descending blow on the golf ball.
Check out the video above to learn how to add this escape shot to your game.
