Stenson storms to Deutsche Bank win
Norton, MA (Sports Network) - Henrik Stenson shot 5-under-par 66 on Monday and secured a 2-stroke victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs.
Stenson had come close this season, posting runner ups at the British Open and the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in consecutive starts, but he broke through at soggy TPC Boston, finishing 72 holes at a tournament record-tying 22-under- par 262. In addition to earning his third PGA Tour win (and first since 2009), the Swede also assumed the top spot in the FedExCup standings from Tiger Woods, who carded a 73 on Monday and tied for 65th place at 4-under 280.
Steve Stricker posted a 67 in the final round, which featured a pair of weather delays, and finished alone in second at 20-under 264. Canadian Graham DeLaet shot 69 and took third at 18-under.
Overnight leader Sergio Garcia stumbled to a 73 and ended in a tie fourth place with Matt Kuchar (66), 20-year-old Jordan Spieth (62) and Kevin Stadler (68) at 17-under 267.
