It came down to the 18th hole, but Rory McIlroy was able to hold onto his one-stroke lead over Louis Oosthuizen and claim the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston on Monday. McIlroy shot a 67 in the final round and finished the tournament 20 strokes under par.
McIlroy took that one-shot lead into the 18th and had a chance to win the tournament with a birdie putt, but it settled just slightly to the side, leaving a tap-in for par. Oosthuizen then had a birdie putt to force a playoff, but it missed, giving McIlroy the tournament.
Tiger Woods finished alone in third place, three strokes behind McIlroy. Phil Mickelson finished fourth, while Brandt Snedeker and Dustin Johnson finished in a tie for fifth.

The second round of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship continues on Saturday afternoon and Rory McIlroy is now atop the leaderboard and in sole possession of first place.
McIlroy is looking to continue a strong season that includes a first place finish at the PGA Championship two weeks ago. McIlroy started off the day on fire, as he tallied four birdies and an eagle in the first ten holes.
After bogeying consecutive holes, he rebounded and made his fifth and sixth birdies of the day to move to minus-6 through 14 holes in the second round. McIlroy now sits alone atop the leaderboard at minus-12 for the tournament.
Ryan Moore, the leader through 10 holes today at minus-11, is now in second place at minus-10 and through 17 holes. Seung-yul Noh is in third place at minus-9 after a double-bogey on his 17th hole of the day.
Tiger Woods currently sits five strokes back of McIlroy's lead at minus-7. Woods is scheduled to tee off at 1:10 p.m.

The second round of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship is underway and Ryan Moore is the leader of the event. On Saturday, Moore was 4-under par through his first 10 holes, putting him at 11-under for the weekend and two shots ahead for the lead.
Seung-Yul Noh is right behind Moore at 9-under for the weekend, and even-par for the day. Rory McIlroy also has a 9-under par score, but he is -3 for the day through the first seven holes. Tiger Woods has yet to tee off on Saturday, but he is in the hunt at 7-under, along with three other golfers (Chris Kirk, Bryce Molder and Jeff Overton).

Seung-Yul Noh is in first place after the first round at the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship, 9-under par and just ahead of Chris Kirk and Tiger Woods, who sit at 8-under and 7-under, respectively.
It's another strong opening for Woods, who has repeatedly played well in tournament opening rounds this year, before strugging on the third and fourth days. Noh has only one top-10 in his career, a ninth-place finish in the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship back in May.
The Georgia area's representatives in the field had mixed results on the day. Swainsboro, Ga. resident Blake Adams currently sits tied for 27th place at 2-under par, while University of Georgia alum Bubba Watson finished 4-over par, leaving him tied for 94th. He'll need a strong Round 2 if he wants to avoid the cut.
