Henrik Stenson Wins Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston; leads FedEx Cup Rankings

  Labor Day Weekend in New England is a time to enjoy the last morsel of summer before the leaves start to change and the heat and humidity subside and the cool weather settles in. For the PGA Tour,  it means four days in Norton, Mass. for the Deutsche Bank Championship at the TPC Boston course designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer. 

 For 37-year-old Swede Henrik Stenson, Labor Day Weekend was particularly enjoyable as he held off a last minute charge of Steve Stricker and capitalized on the collaspe of Sergio Garcia to capture the victory in the tour's only visit to the Boston area and the second stop in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

 Garcia, who was the 54-hole leader after shooting rounds of 65, 64 and 65 in the first three days of the tournament, struggled after the weather delay that halted play after severe thunderstorms blew through the area. The Spaniard, nicknamed "El Nino", was not able to overcome four bogeys on the front nine and fell out of contention early on Monday. Garcia had five bogeys overall for his round after only shooting one bogey in each of his first three rounds. He finished 2-over, 73 for the final round and 17-under for the tournament which was five strokes off the pace. 

 Tiger Woods, whose Tiger Woods Foundation has received over $24 million from the DBC, was never in the hunt and finished tied for 65th place with a disappointing showing of 4-under for the tournament.

 Stenson finished off his first PGA Tour victory of 2013 with a stellar 5-under performance on Monday that included holing out a bunker shot on the 17th hole with Stricker closing in. His 22-under 262 for the four rounds tied a tournament record. Not only did he win $1.44 million for his victory, Stenson earned himself 2,500 FedEx Cup points to overtake Woods for the lead after the second playoff tournament.

 The FedEx Cup Playoffs is the PGA Tour's playoff system that began back in 2005 using a points system. The playoffs start with the top 125 golfers for the final four tournaments of the PGA Tour season. After the first playoff tournament, The Barclays which was held last weekend in New Jersey, the top 100 point leaders qualified for the Deutsche Bank Championship. With this tournament completed, now the top 70 will compete at the BMW Championship at the Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, IL. From there, the top 30 will battle for the FedEx Cup and a $10 million check at the Tour Championship at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, GA.
