Rory McIlroy Captures Deutsche Bank Championship
Rory McIlroy shot a 67 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to finish 20-under par and win the tournament's crown on Monday.
McIlroy's fourth-round score was good enough to push him past Louis Oosthuizen, who entered the day as the tournament leader after a magnificent weekend. Oosthuizen shot a 71 on Monday and took second place.
The third-place finisher was none other than Tiger Woods. Woods was in position near the top of the leaderboard for the entire tournament, but his 66 in Round 4 wasn't quite enough to earn him the victory at the TPC Boston in Norton, Mass.
McIlroy's third victory of the year was made possible by six birdies in the final round, including three straight at one point. He did bogey two holes, but the second bogey came on a meaningless 18th hole.
The 23-year-old Northern Irishman was excellent off the tee in terms of distance but only hit 50 percent of his fairways. However, he made up almost two strokes with his putting game.
The Tour Championship is quickly approaching, and this most recent victory slots McIlroy in first place in the FedEx Cup standings.
McIlroy played an excellent tournament overall. His 67 in the final round mirrored his Round 3 performance; he shot a 65 in both Round 1 and Round 2. He showed, once again, how talented he is when he plays focused golf for 72 holes.
The chase for the championship, and its $10 million prize, is going to be interesting. Rory McIlroy certainly made a case for himself by staying on point and chasing down Oosthuizen for the Deutsche.
He's one of the game's best young players and he confirmed that with this consistent four-day stretch.
