McIlroy rallies to win Deutsche Bank event
Meanwhile, Tiger Woods became the first golfer to surpass the $100 million mark, after he finished third.

WORLD NUMBER ONE Rory McIlroy fired his second consecutive four-under 67 on Monday to capture the PGA Tour’s Deutsche Bank Championship by one shot over South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen.

McIlroy finished at 20-under-par 264 for his third victory of the season. He now has five career PGA Tour wins.

Oosthuizen closed with an even-par 71 on the TPC Boston to finish solo in second at 19-under. The 2010 British Open champion lost earlier this year to Bubba Watson in a playoff at the Masters.

Tiger Woods parred eight consecutive holes beginning at the 10th and then made birdie on 18 for a fourth round five-under 66. Woods finished third at 18-under-par 266.

Woods also surpassed the $100 million mark in PGA Tour earnings with his third-place finish.

Dustin Johnson (70) and Phil Mickelson (66) tied for fourth at minus-14. It marked Mickelson’s best finish since the Masters, where he finished in a tie for third.

McIlroy, who won the PGA Championship last month, vaults into the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings.
