Henrik Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship with a final round 66 to tie the tournament record at 22 under par, two clear of his closest pursuant Steve Stricker.
Beginning the day three strokes behind the lead, Stenson faltered early bogeying the second hole. He fought back and raced up the leaderboard with birdies at the fourth, fifth, sixth, and eighth holes. Making the turn in 33 strokes gave the big swinging Swede the lead.
Henrik added a birdie at the 11th hole to extend his lead to three strokes. Stenson, who has had three runner up finishes on the PGA Tour this year, now controlled his own destiny at TPC Boston. He continued to play mistake-free over the back nine before a birdie on the 17th sealed the deal.
This is Henrik's third PGA Tour victory and first since his 2009 Players Championship win. The win also moves Stenson into the top spot in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
Stenson chose FJ ICON and Pure Touch Limited en route to victory.

A great win for Stenson. He appears to be coming into his own after that setback last year and he really put on a show today. He may be the one who will win it all in the next few weeks. We wait and see.
How about Stricker? 43 and playing with a skimpy schedule this year and able to put up rounds like he did this week. Knowing him he will be a contender very weekend now, top 5 every week.
Good win by HS and second by SS!
What a stellar performance.
Great win for Stenson. He has played so well this summer. Great to see him back on top. Great win for Footjoy !
What a great win for Henrik. I had the pleasure of having him in our group for the Pro-Am Thursday and will post some pics later today.
Man Stenson is on a hot streak! Glad to see him finally close one out.
I'm happy to see Henrick Stenson finally get back into the winners circle. He has played so well this summer and what a hole out from the bunker on 17!!!
Solid finish by Stenson. Glad to see him back playing well again.
Stenson has seemed ready to win all year. Only a few shots have kept him from winning multiple tournaments. His size, strength, swing mechanics, and ball-striking make him a prime candidate for lots o' wins.
I'm surprised by the FJ shoes to glove ratio. I would have guessed that the numbers would have been reversed. FJ/Titelist gloves are so common on tour, but there are a number of shoe manufacturers represented, especially Nike.
Wonderful job by Henrick. Super job finishing off the tournament. Also a great showing by Steve S.
You could see this coming, but great that the big guy brought it home. What a bunker shot on 17!
Great win! He has been solid lately so it was nice to see him get the win. I wouldn't be surprised if he does it again very soon.
Stenson time has come and he is on his way and with footjoy no less!!! :)
Great ball striking all week by a guy who hits it long and straight, Adam and he are the of the straightest and longest guys on tour. Pleasure to watch him play golf.
