2012 Deutsche Bank Championship: Rory McIlroy Claims Victory At TPC Boston

Rory McIlroy fought off Louis Oosthuizen down to the last strokes for a win at the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. After missing a birdie putt on the 18th hole by merely one centimeter that would have clinched the win, McIlroy watched as Oosthuizen missed his birdie opportunity wide as well, missing the shot at a playoff.

Oosthuizen (-19) gave up his three-shot lead to start the round, and McIlroy (-20) found the top of the leaderboard with five birdies on the front nine.

Tiger Woods shot a five-under 66 on Monday's round to finish at 18-under, good for third place and only two shots behind the winner, McIlroy. Phil Mickelson also shot a 66 to move him up to a tie for fourth with Dustin Johnson at 14-under. The rest of the top 10 included Brandt Snedeker (-13), Adam Scott (-12), Jeff Overton (-12), Bryce Molder (-11), Kevin Stadler (-10), and Ryan Moore (-10).

Texas native Bob Estes finished by shooting a 69 and finished tied for 42nd place at two-under on the tournament.

Deutsche Bank Leaderboard: Rory McIlroy Leads, Tiger Woods Charging

After an early double bogey by 54-hole leader Louis Oosthuizen, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy snatched the lead in the final round of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday at 20-under par.

McIlroy still only holds a two-stroke lead on his South African playing partner despite the early gaffe, but will have to fight off a red-hot Tiger Woods, who is now up to 17-under over the final nine holes in order to stay atop the leaderboard when the tournament concludes.

Even though he remains three strokes away from McIlroy, a visibly-improved Woods posted a 4-under score of 32 on the front nine and looks to be well on his way towards making thing quite interesting over the final few holes. With the two next closest competitors on the leaderboard, Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson, both well off the pace at 13-under, it's shaping up to be a three-man race.

Dustin Johnson is in a tie for third place with Tiger Woods heading into the final day of the tournament, as Johnson finished Day 3 at 6-under, improving his overall score to 13-under.

Texas native and UT product Bob Estes started the day at 2-under, but struggled to a 73 on Sunday, which leaves him at even-par overall heading into the final round. Meanwhile, the Houston-born Roberto Castro had his best round of the tournament so far, as he shot a 2-under 69 on Day 3 to get back to even-par for the tourney.
