Deutsche Bank Championship 2012: Rory McIlroy Wins By One Stroke

With an overall score of 20-under, Rory McIlroy won the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday by one stroke over Louis Oosthuizen. The current world No. 1 came from behind as Oosthuizen posted an underwhelming score in the final round, allowing McIlroy to nab the top spot in the tournament.

Continuing a consistently strong performance, McIlroy posted a 4-under 67 on Monday to finish just ahead of Oosthuizen and Tiger Woods. Oosthuizen was the leader entering the final round after hitting a 63 on Sunday, but he stumbled to an even 71 on Monday to fall to second place.

Woods played well throughout the tournament after starting particularly strong, finishing in third place with an overall score of 18-under. Cleveland native Jason Dufner struggled in the final round, shooting a 3-over 74 to finish tied for 18th at 7-under overall.
