The future of the second FedEx Cup playoff event is no longer in doubt, with consulting company EMC taking over as title sponsor of the Boston-area event from Deutsche Bank.

EMC has been involved with the tournament since its inception in 2003.

His American compatriot, Patrick Reed came from behind to win The Barclays on Sunday to claim his fifth PGA Tour title and finishing at nine-under 275 for a one-stroke victory.

"I leave here on a big-time high", the world No 3 said as he heads to TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship next week. The official name of the tournament will be announced at a later date. The top 30 players in FedEx Cup points qualify for the Tour Championship on September 22-25 in Atlanta. Players will have to get from Boston to Crooked Stick in IN for the third round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs between Monday evening and Thursday morning while trying to squeeze in some extra practice time.

Until EMC stepped in, there was discussion about having only three playoff events.
