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.
