EMC to be title sponsor of Boston playoff event in 2017

The FedEx Cup will stay with four playoff events next year with EMC stepping in as title sponsor of Boston-area tournament.

EMC has been involved with the tournament since its inception in 2003. The PGA Tour announced Thursday that the company will become title sponsor for 2017.

Deutsche Bank didn't renew as title sponsor after 14 years at the TPC Boston. The title of the tournament hasn't been announced.

The Boston event is the second of four events during the FedEx Cup playoffs, when the field size is whittled down each week until the final 30 make it to the Tour Championship. The playoffs start with 125 players and 100 make it to Boston.

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