Boston Fans Live up to Reputation at Deutsche Bank Championship

Boston Fans Live up to Reputation at Deutsche Bank Championship It doesn't matter what the sporting event may be, Boston fans show up and bring their world-famous support.

Fans are coming out in hordes for the Deutsche Bank Championship event held at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass. NESN's Cole Wright caught up with Deutsche Bank CEO Seth Waugh to discuss the fan turnout for the weeklong event.

"It's a big deal for us," Waugh said. "They've been incredibly supportive over the years, and we've tried to build a really special event with a special atmosphere and the fans have been incredibly responsive."

Waugh also discussed the recent sponsorship extension with the PGA Tournament. Deutsche Bank will continue to serve as the primary sponsor — as it has since the event's inception in 2003 — through 2012, ensuring a New England PGA tournament event for two more years.

Jason Day and Zach Thompson currently rank atop the Deutsche Bank Championship leaderboard. The two are locked in at first place as they both shot 8-under-par in Friday's first round.
