Norton, MA (Sports Network) - World No. 1 Rory McIlroy closed with his second straight 4-under 67 on Monday to win the Deutsche Bank Championship by one stroke over Louis Oosthuizen.
McIlroy finished at 20-under-par 264. This was his third win of the season and fifth of his young PGA Tour career.
The PGA Champion also jumps to the top of the FedExCup standings with two playoff events to go.
Oosthuizen only managed an even-par 71 in the final round to end alone in second at minus-20. The 2010 British Open champion lost to Bubba Watson in a playoff at the Masters and failed again in his attempt to collect his second PGA Tour title.
Tiger Woods parred eight straight holes from the 10th. He did birdie the last for a 5-under 66, which gave him third at 18-under-par 266 at TPC Boston.
Dustin Johnson (70) and Phil Mickelson (66) shared fourth at minus-14. The tie for fourth was Mickelson's best finish since he tied for third at the Masters.
