NORTON, Mass. — A great summer of golf finally paid off for Henrik Stenson.
Stenson made three straight birdies to race by a fast-fading Sergio Garcia, and he holed a bunker shot for birdie on the 17th hole to turn back a final threat from Steve Stricker and win the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Stenson was runner-up in the British Open and at the World Golf Championship, and he tied for third at the PGA Championship. All that was missing was a trophy, and he took care of that on Labor Day at the soggy TPC Boston by closing with a 5-under 66 for a two-shot win over Stricker.
The 37-year-old Swede moved to the top of the FedEx Cup standings after two playoff events, assuring him his first trip to the Tour Championship and a clear shot at the $10 million prize.
“I’m just pleased I won here,” said Stenson, who tied the tournament record at 22-under 262. “This was a big goal of mine to win a golf tournament after all those nice finishes. My family is here. I’m going to see my kids in a li...

I have written before about my beef with the FedEx Cup playoff system, but another has arisen for me to pick on. I think it’s something that should be worth noting.

Sergio Garcia started with the lead in the Deutsche Bank Championship and shot 65. And he needed just about every birdie.
On a course softened by rain that caused a re-start of the third round Sunday, Garcia two-putted for birdie on the 18th hole to take a two-shot lead over Henrik Stenson into the final round.
Stenson stayed with the Spaniard birdie-for-birdie until a three-putt...
