BOSTON, Massachusetts, - World No.1 Rory McIlroy came from three shots behind to win the second US PGA Tour playoffs event in Boston yesterday, holding off fellow major champions Louis Oosthuizen and Tiger Woods.
McIlroy fired a closing four-under-par 67 yesterday to triumph at 20-under 264, one shot clear of Oosthuizen (71) and two ahead of Woods (66), claiming his third win of the year.
It was his second victory in three starts, having won the US PGA Championship by a record eight shots last month.
Phil Mickelson (66) and fellow American and Ryder Cup hopeful Dustin Johnson (70) tied for fourth at 14-under-par.
Some late McIlroy stumbles gave Oosthuizen a 12-foot putt on the last to force a playoff but it wouldn't drop.
