Congratulations to TravisMathew’s own Chris Kirk who won the Deutsche Bank Title with a bogey free round of 66. This is his second win of the season and biggest win of his career. It also puts him in first place in The FedEx Cup standings and a hopeful to be one of the three Ryder Cup captain’s picks announced Tuesday.

"I definitely put myself in contention for one," Kirk said. "If I get picked great. If not, I'm still happy with my win today."

Paired with Rory McIlroy for the second straight day, Kirk took the outright lead for the first time with a 25-foot birdie putt on the 13th hole. Down the stretch, he held off Billy Horschel and the rest of the field thanks to steady play and a red hot putter.

We here could not be happier for Kirk. For those of you asking, Kirk was wearing Hough Pants, and a Carl Spackler polo.
