Deutsche Bank Championship Round 4 Results: Rory McIlroy Wins At TPC Boston

1,713

NORTON, Mass. — Rory McIlroy is your Deutsche Bank Championship winner — again.

The former No. 1 golfer in the world came roaring back from a 4-over start to Friday’s first round at the Deutsche Bank Championship to claim his second career victory at TPC Boston. He shot a 6-under-par 65 to finish the weekend at 15-under overall, two shots clear of Paul Casey.

Here’s how it all went down.

HOW IT HAPPENED
McIlroy couldn’t have done much better on the front nine, as he made the turn at 31 after five birdies, including three straight on holes No. 7 through 9. He very nearly blew the lead he had built up with a bogey on the 17th, but he rebounded with a birdie on the last hole to seal the deal.

IT WAS OVER WHEN…
Casey missed his eagle putt on the 18th. Casey entered Monday’s final round with a three shot lead, but he faced a two-shot deficit on the 72nd hole. He had a chance to force a playoff with a long eagle putt, but it didn’t fall for him.

WINDY
The remnants of Hurricane Hermine didn’t bring any rain to TPC Boston, but there was plenty of wind, which certainly impacted how the players did — well, everyone except for McIlroy.
