NORTON, Mass. (AP) – Rory McIlroy has won the Deutsche Bank Championship for his third PGA Tour this year.

In a Labor Day finish that featured some of the biggest names in golf, McIlroy closed with a 4-under 67 and got away with a few mistakes to hold off Louis Oosthuizen for a one-shot victory on the TPC Boston. Oosthuizen narrowly missed a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff. He closed with a 71.

Tiger Woods made a charge on the front nine, though he never got closer than three shots until a birdie on his last hole for a 66. Phil Mickelson finished fourth.

Woods went over $100 million in PGA Tour earnings with his third-place finish. McIlroy went to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup.
