The PGA Tour announced Wednesday Deutsche Bank has formally extended its sponsorship of the Deutsche Bank Championship by four years through ‘16.

EMC Corp. also has renewed as the local presenting sponsor through ’16 (PGA Tour). In Boston, Michael Whitmer wrote, “All signs pointed to the new deal, with Deutsche Bank Americas CEO Seth Waugh saying a month ago that a handshake agreement was in place.” The tournament has “always been held over Labor Day weekend, and since 2007 has been the second of four events in the tour’s FedEx Cup playoffs” (BOSTON GLOBE, 8/30).
