Boston: Anirban Lahiri approaches the Dell Technologies with a lot of expectations as the second leg of the four-leg FedExCup play-offs could spell the end of the season for many. Only the Top-70 will move to the third leg, BMW and Lahiri would love to be there once again, like year.
Last year in his first tryst with the Play-offs, Lahiri missed the cut in Northern Trust, but finished T-56th at Dell and then had a Top-10 BMW, but he fell short of getting into Top-30 for the Tour Championships.
This year he did make the cut at Northern Trust but ended way behind in the T-71st place.
Tiger Woods, who was not able to build on his two successive Top-10s in the Majors at The Open and PGA, will be looking at a much better showing than T-40 at Northern Trust. This is his first Play-offs since 2013.
Woods is paired for the first round with Marc Leishman and Chez Reavie from the tenth tee.
Any player ranked from 58th, which is Hideki Matsuyama to 100th, which is Jason Dufner on the FedEx Cup standings could be eliminated from the playoffs this week.
And of course, a good result could see from those below 70 rise and make the list for next week.
