2012 Deutsche Bank Championship: Rory McIlroy Finishes At 20-Under, Wins Tournament

Rory McIlroy is the winner of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship after shooting 20-under for the tournament. McIlroy beat out runner-up Louis Oosthuizen by one stroke.

Oosthuizen was the leader heading into the final day, as he held a three-stroke lead over McIlroy and the rest of the field at the completion of Sunday's action. However, Oosthuizen was unable to find his groove on Monday, while McIlroy found himself at 4-under for the second consecutive day. After shooting a 65 for two straight days to begin the tournament, that was enough to catapult him to victory.

Tiger Woods played well on the final day after struggling to finish the last few tournaments. Woods' final-round 66 tied him with Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Kevin Stadler for the best score of the day. However, his inability to hang with the top of the leaderboard during the middle two days cost him a shot at the win. Still, by taking home $544,000 dollars for finishing in third place, Woods became the first player in the history of the PGA Tour to reach $100 million in career earnings.

Pontiac, Mich. native Tom Gillis finished the day at 1-under, which brought his score for the tournament down to 5-under. That was good enough for a tie for 26th place, and allowed Gillis to take home $54,444.
