Henrik Stenson walked to tee of the par-3 16th hole of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston with a one-shot advantage over Rickie Fowler. He walked off the green trailing by a stroke. An ill-timed error from Stenson, who played beautiful golf all week long, left the Swede to wonder what might have been. Stenson had kept Fowler at bay during Monday's final round, but Fowler, dressed in his signature final round orange, played solid golf throughout to take home the title.

After matching pars at 17, both men ripped great drives down the fairway at the long par-4 18th, but both failed to hit the green with their second shots, Stenson coming up short and left, Fowler bouncing off to the left after taking a run at the pin. Stenson nearly holed his pitch shot, but missed the ensuing par putt. Fowler chose to putt from off the green, chasing it about 10 feet past the hole; he would also miss his par putt, but tapped in from a foot to give him his third win of the year.

The win would also vault Rickie Fowler past Henrik Stenson in the overall points standings for the FedExCup. Fowler jumped nineteen spots into the third position while Stenson stayed in the fourth spot behind points leader Jason Day, who finished in a tie for 12th. Day was able to increase his lead over Jordan Spieth, who remains in second despite having missed a second consecutive cut.

After a week off, the top 70 players will head to the Chicago area for the BMW Championship from Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois. Here are the top 70 in the standings in the race to East Lake.
