Stenson wins in Massachusetts

12:35 pm on 3 September 2013

Sweden's Henrik Stenson has won the Deutsche Bank Championship in Massachusetts, the latest event of the US PGA golf tour.

Stenson finished 2 shots ahead of American Steve Stricker.

Stenson moves above Tiger Woods into the top spot in the FedExCup standings after the second of the four playoff tournaments.

The Swede's victory was his first on the PGA Tour since the 2009 Players Championship.

Overnight leader Sergio Garcia fell back into a tie for fourth after closing with a disappointing 73, ending up five strokes behind Stenson.

World number one Woods wound up joint 65th after shooting a two-over 73, despite low-scoring conditions on a rain-softened course.
