Last years champion also happens to be the golfer I trust the most right now at any tournament in any given week.

Hes just an auto selection for me at this point. Somewhere inside the top 10.

2. Rory McIlroy returns, Rickie Fowler sits:This event is notable for two guys who both skipped last weeks Northern Trust. Fowler will again miss with an oblique injury which is a mini (like, really mini) siren for the Ryder Cup. McIlroy, who missed last week with disinterest, comes to TPC Boston having won this tournament twice in his career. Hes looking for a kick-start before Paris, and if theres a track in the playoff rota that would provide it for him, its probably this one.

This weeks Dell Technologies Championship marks the second of four postseason FedEx Cup Playoffs events. It also marks the end of the summer. Because of the Labor Day finish, this tournament is played from Friday-Monday, which certainly changes the viewing experience for golf fans.

Snedeker carries a three-stroke lead into Sunday in Napa

Missed two of five cuts, but he also finished T4 at the PGA Championship.

Mickelson unconvinced of own success

Last week felt a tad disappointing, but thats probably only because the previous month had been such a thrill.

Lets take a look at this weeks contest.

Hes my top-10 pick (see below) because hes been consistent both on the PGA Tour and at this course.

Signs of life for Spieth last week in Round 3, but hes just not putting four rounds together right now.

Peerless history at this track. All-time earnings leader at this tournament,according to the PGA Tour.

Horschel is quietly having a great few months, and hes found success in these playoffs (and on this course) before. He finished second in 2014 en route to his FedEx Cup title.

You know the talent pool on the PGA Tour is ludicrous when Finau and Cantlay are both one-win players.

I was disappointed in how he closed last week, but dont let his performance distract you from the fact that he had an all-time poor putting weekend. Ball-striking remains.

Mickelson did not think hed compete at the Safeway Open, but hes only three strokes back

What:Dell Technologies ChampionshipWhen:Aug. 31 to Sept. 3

He has a lot at stake over the next few weeks, and has been straight raking with four top 10s in his last seven starts — including two majors — and a runner up at The Northern Trust last week.

At some point, hes not only going to knock the door down, hes going to set it on fire and knock down three other doors, too. All of a sudden, he might be playing for a Ryder Cup spot, especially if he wins.

3. Wait, is Bryson going to win the FedEx Cup?The winner of the first playoff event has only gone on to win the whole thing one time, but DeChambeau is now first in FedEx Cup points with three tournaments left. If he can hang on a little in the next two weeks, he should be able to go to East Lake with his own fate — and the fate of $10 million — in his own hands. This week, historically, is bigger than last week, though.

Im operating under the assumption going forward that hes going to be elite, until proven otherwise.

Field strength — A+:The only person its missing, really, is Rickie Fowler (more on that below). Tiger obviously juices up ever tournament, but hes not the only headliner this week — and wont be for the next four.

He has four top 20s on this course, and is coming in after a bizarre week in New Jersey in which he nearly matched winner Bryson DeChambeau in birdies made.

1. End of the Ryder Cup road:U.S. captain Jim Furyk has some pretty interesting — and perhaps hairy — decisions to make in the coming days about his squad. With three of the captains picks coming on Sept. 4, nobody is quite sure how this is going to play out. Woods and Phil Mickelson seem like (and are) locks. DeChambeau probably cant be left off after winning the Memorial and The Northern Trust, plus finishing ninth in the Ryder Cup standings, one spot out of qualifying. Traditional thinking says the remaining spot will go to a veteran like Matt Kuchar or Zach Johnson, even though theyre pretty far back in qualifying. But how do you leave Tony Finau, who finished second last week to DeChambeau, off the team? And how will Furyk use the first three picks vs. the final one on Sept. 10? Lots of questions, few answers until then.

Love him this week! He rides heaters as hot as anyone on the PGA Tour, and weve seen him get crazy during the FedEx Cup Playoffs before.

Mickelson in the hunt at Safeway Open

Day has converging trends. He has three top 10s at this course and is streaking coming in after a mini-lull in the middle of his season. Five straight top 20s following a missed cut at Shinnecock and the U.S. Open.

He gets the nod of players representing the rest of the field because hes a former champ.
