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.

Along par-3 always presents a challenge for every golfer but if you're armed with the right game plan and technique, it can become a scoring opportunity.
And to help us improve our approach, Titleist Staff Professional Mark Blackburn is back to discuss the importance of choosing a conservative target and making an aggressive swing.
Mark's advice is to focus on hitting a high, soft shot in order to maximize control. To do this, he explains how a long, shallow swing will help launch the ball higher and create a steeper angle of decent.
