Henrik fired a final round -5 under par 66, to comprehensively win the Deutsche Bank Championship by two shots with his tournament total of -22 under par. In a good season of golf Henrik was the runner-up in the British Open and a World Golf Championship, and he also tied for third at the PGA Championship. The win puts him at the top of the FedExCup standings. He said he was pleased to finally win a tournament;
“I’m just pleased I won here, this was a big goal of mine to win a golf tournament after all those nice finishes. My family is here. I’m going to see my kids in a little bit. It’s all good.”
Steve Stricker was in second place, at -20 under par, this was his third second place finish this year, and he has played his way into the The Presidents Cup team. Steve shot a final round of -4 under par 67 to secure the runner-up position.
Third place went to Graham DeLaet, his final round -2 under par giving him a total score of -18 under par for the tournament.
Sergio was one of four players tied in fourth place at -17 under par. He enjoyed a two-shot lead at the start of the final round, but sadly gave it away quickly, starting with a three-putt for bogey on the par-5 second hole. He missed several short putts and went out in 39, falling too far back to catch up. He ended up with a final round of +2 over par 73.
Sharing that fourth spot with Sergio at -17 under par were, Matt Kuchar, Kevin Stadler and Jordan Spieth.
Jordan fired the low round of the tournament in his final round, a -9 under par 62.
The top 70 players on the FedExCup standings now move on to the BMW Championship next week, starting on Thursday the 12th September.
