On Friday, September 4, the 2015 Deutsche Bank Championship tees off and will be underway. Held at TPC Boston, this par-71 course will be the location for the annual Labor Day weekend tournament. Chris Kirk’s bogey-free final 36 holes helped him win for the second time in 2014, capturing his first Deutsche Bank Championship title last time around.
Tickets for all rounds are still available. Fans should act quickly, however, as tickets are going fast.

The following day is slated to be the most expensive round, carrying an average ticket price of $90.37, though the get-in price is actually cheaper, being $52. For those seeking lower-priced admission, Sunday currently sports the lowest pricing, as tickets are clocking in at $77.01 on average, while the get-in price sits at $58.

Vijay Singh, Charley Hoffman, and Henrik Stenson all hold a share of the course’s 72-hole record, 262. Singh stood as the owner of the 18-hole record after shooting a 61 during the third round in 2006. Mike Weir then joined him has co-holder in 2008. With a highly-talented field, we could possibly see these records being broken come Friday.
Current FedExCup leader Jason Day, golden boy Jason Spieth, and world-ranked No. 1 Rory McIlroy headline those in contention to do so. Day enters this tournament fueled by his first major victory at the PGA Championship, while McIlroy returns to the top spot, displacing Spieth.
Although it would seem likely that these three are favorites, others are due to hoist a trophy sooner than later. Leading these golfers is Brooks Koepka, who is currently positioned in 16th of the FedEx standings. The 2014 Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year is more than capable of moving up the ladder, making him a sleeper to win in the upcoming event.
Joining him in the same quadrant is Paul Casey. The Englishman will look to build off of his -15 performance at the Wyndham Championship, but to do so, he’ll also need to bounce back from a 39th-place finish at The Barclays.
The final round of the tournament is set to be another great finish. The 2014 edition saw Billy Horschel miss a chance at forcing a playoff. Needing a precise shot with his 6-iron on the 18th hole, he came up short, finishing two strokes behind Kirk for the victory. All signs point towards another exciting final round as Geoff Ogilvy and Russell Henley also ended tied with Horschel for second.
Tickets for the concluding round on Monday can be purchased at an average of $84.64, and the get-in price is currently $60. As the 2015 Deutsche Bank Championship progresses through the weekend, expect those prices to begin to inflate, making it imperative that fans acquire their tickets as soon as they can.
