The Dell Technologies Championship is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour in the northeast United States, held annually in late summer over the Labor Day weekend. The 2018 edition would be the last time the event was staged as the FedEx Cup was reduced from four to three Playoff events in 2019.

History[edit]

Replacing the Air Canada Championship in British Columbia on the tour schedule, the tournament made its debut in 2003 as the Deutsche Bank Championship. It is held at the Tournament Players Club of Boston in Norton, Massachusetts, south-southwest of Boston. Unlike most PGA Tour events which are played Thursday through Sunday, this tournament is played Friday through Monday, with the final round on Labor Day.

It became part of the first-year FedEx Cup playoffs in 2007, with its purse increased to $7 million. The purse in 2017 is $8.75 million, with a winner's share of $1.575 million. As the second of the four playoff events, its field is limited to the top 100 players on the FedEx Cup points list. Points are amassed during the PGA Tour's regular season and the first playoff event, The Northern Trust, which takes place the previous week in the New York City area.[citation needed]

Dell Technologies took over as the title sponsor of the tournament in 2017; new subsidiary Dell EMC is headquartered in Massachusetts. Deutsche Bank sponsored the first fourteen editions, through 2016.[1]

The event is currently managed by the PGA Tour;[2] it was managed by the Tiger Woods Foundation from 2013 to 2016.[3]

Television[edit]

With the tournament's offset scheduling, Friday to Monday, network coverage has been over the final two scheduled rounds, Sunday and Monday; cable channels carry the Friday and Saturday rounds. The first network partner was ABC Sports from 2003 to 2006, though the 2006 event was covered under the "ESPN on ABC" banner. Since 2007, the event has been covered by NBC Sports, though the 2011 and 2012 events were covered under the "Golf Channel on NBC" banner.[citation needed]
