NORTON, Mass. -- Deutsche Bank has exercised a two-year option to remain as the title sponsor of the PGA Tour playoffs event at the TPC Boston through 2012.

The Deutsche Back Championship debuted in 2003, marking the return of the PGA Tour to the Boston area for the first time since 1998. It has been a part of the playoffs since they began in 2007.

Winners of the tournament have included Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott, Steve Stricker, Olin Browne and two-time champion Vijay Singh.

Stricker will defend his 2009 title beginning Friday.
