NORTON, Mass. – Tournament leader Louis Oosthuizen has teed off to begin his final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. He leads playing partner Rory McIlroy by three strokes.
This is just the third time in Oosthuizen’s PGA TOUR career that he has been the 54-leader.
The first time came at the 2010 British Open when he shot 71 and romped to victory at St. Andrews. The second time came earlier this year at the Shell Houston Open, when he carded a final-round 75 to drop to third place.
In terms of final-round scoring average, Oosthuizen ranks tied for 53rd on TOUR in that category with a stroke average of 70.60.
