After shooting a 4-under 67 to claim the Deutsche Bank Championship at the TPC Boston on Labor Day Monday, Rory McIlroy made a strong charge to the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings, leading Nick Watney and Tiger Woods midway through golf's playoff.
McIlroy sat in fourth place in the FedEx Cup standings after The Barclays, but his victory on Monday has pushed him past Watney, Woods and Brandt Snedeker. McIlroy will enter next weekend's BMW Championship with a 1,331 point lead over second-place Woods. A victory at the BMW will be worth 2,500 points in the standings.
Here are the current top 15 of the FedEx Cup standings:

With a total purse of $8 million, a number of other players took home a nice payday. Louis Oosthuizen, who finished second to McIlroy, won $864,000. Phil Mickelson finished in a tie for fourth place, earning him a purse of $352,000.

Rory McIlroy shot a 4-under 67 on Monday to win the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, MA.. McIlroy finished at 20-under for the tournament, just enough to hold off Louis Oosthuizen, who finished second at 19-under. Tiger Woods finished third.
McIlroy nearly cost himself the lead when he bogeyed the 17th hole but Oosthuizen also bogeyed the 17th and McIlroy was able to par the final hole to win. The win caps off four strong days of play from McIlroy. He shot a 65 in each of the first two rounds and followed that up with a 67 in both the third and fourth rounds.
Woods shot a 5-under 66 on Monday to finish at 18-under. Woods played a bogey-free round on Monday, finishing with five birdies and 13 pars. Phil Mickelson also shot a 5-under 66 Monday and finished in a tie for fourth place at 14-under.
New England's golf tournament wraps up on Labor Day as Louis Oosthuizen will be paired with the World Number One Rory McIlroy in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship trying to hold on to a three-stroke lead after a hot third round.
Oosthuizen's didn't improve on his eight birdies in ten holes, finishing his third round at 8-under, but it was more than enough to give him the lead entering Monday. McIlroy is definitely within striking range, but another round like Sunday's would give Oosthuizen a win in the second tournament of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Tiger Woods isn't out of the hunt either, six strokes back of the lead at 13-under in a tie for third, but with so many strokes to make up, Woods will likely be pleased with a high finish.
Keegan Bradley's big day Sunday pushed him to a tie for 19th, but the Vermont native has a long way to go in what is essentially his home tournament, as he's 13 off the lead.
The day starts at 11:30 a.m. on the Golf Channel and switches over to NBC at 1:30 p.m. The tournament will also be streamed here on the PGA Tour's official website.
Louis Oosthuizen leads the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston after a 8-under par round on Sunday. Oosthuizen is sitting at 19-under for the tournament. Rory McIlroy is three shots back at 16-under par after a 4-under round on Sunday.
Vermont native Keegan Bradley is tied for 19th in the tournament after an 8-under 63 round on Sunday. Bradley is 6-under for the tournament. Bradley tied Oosthuizen for the best round on Sunday. Both golfers had just one bogey on the day.
Tied 3rd, Tiger Woods, 13-under, 3-under on Sunday
Tied 7th, Charley Hoffman, 10 under, 2-under on Sunday
Tied 9th, Phil Mickelson, 9-under, 3-under on Sunday
Tied 14th, Webb Simpson, 8-under, 5-under on Sunday
Tied 32nd, Vijay Singh, 3-under, 3-under on Sunday
Keegan Bradley, a native of Woodstock, VT, made a huge move up the leader board Sunday shooting a remarkable 8-under par, 63, in the third-round of the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, MA. The score helped Bradley post a three-day total of 6-under par (207) and vaulted him 52 spots up the leader board and sit in a tie for 15th place.
Bradley's incredible seven-birdie, one-eagle, one-bogey performance puts him in decent position to make a run at the leaders in Monday's final round. Currently, Bradley sits six shots behind second-round leader Rory McIlroy, who's set to tee off at 1:45 p.m. Right behind McIlory are golf stars Louis Oosthuizen (-11), Tiger Woods (-10) and Jason Dufner (-9).
Besides Bradley, no other golfer are making a big push up the leader board but the meat of the field has yet to tee off. Bradley's round is an indication that Sunday's scoring could be low and a lot of golfers will have a shot at making a run at the leaders.
During the early portion of the third day of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, Woodstock, Vt. native Keegan Bradley is storming up the leaderboard as he is five under through 12 holes on the day. Bradley's stroke total is now at 144, good for five under and a tie for 17th place overall, a stunning 50 spots higher on the leaderboard from where he began the day.
Also rising on the day are Vijay Singh and Carl Petterson, who have both improved to three under overall.
The most notable fall on the day thus far is Australian Geoff Ogilvy, who has fallen 28 spots into a tie for 66th overall. Ogilvy's fall is due largely to a double bogey on the par-5 second hole of the course.
Leaders Rory McIlroy, Louis Oosthuizen, Ryan Moore and Tiger Woods are yet to tee off.
The third day of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, MA, is underway, with PGA Champion Rory McIlroy leading the field at -12.

Woodstock, Vermont native Keegan Bradley fell one spot yesterday after shooting a two-over 73. He is currently tied for 68th on the event thus far.

After two rounds of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass., Rory McIlroy leads the pack with an overall 12-under.
The Northern Ireland pprduct has shot back-to-back rounds of 65 on Friday and Saturday, showing the remarkable consistency that has made him a top player. Louis Oosthuizen is sitting just a shot off McIlroy's pace in second place. The South African has looked solid all year including his runner-up finish in the 2012 Masters.
Tiger Woods is perhaps the biggest concern of McIlroy. Woods is tied for third with fellow American Ryan Moore at 10-under after charging down the back nine in the second round. The 14-time major champion finished the day with two birdies on the 14th and 17th holes to close the gap heading into Sunday.
Phil Mickelson is still on the competitive fringe with a 6-under and Vermont native Keegan Bradley just barely survived the cut at 2-over and is tied for 67th.

A complete leaderboard for the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship can be found here.
TPC Boston hosts this weekend's Deutsche Bank Championship, and on Day 1 it offered perfect conditions for low scoring.
Tiger Woods is currently tied for first place after firing a 7-under 64 on Friday. Woods, who won this event in 2006, made eight birdies and would have finished the day at eight under par if not for the bogey he made on his final hole.
Also atop the leaderboard is fellow-American Jeff Overton, who arrived at his 64 by drilling six birdies in his final seven holes.
Scoring appears to have gotten harder as the day went on, as fewer afternoon players are currently in contention.
Former St. John's standout Keegan Bradley appears to be getting his round on track. After starting his day with three straight bogeys, Bradley eagled the fourth hole and has since managed to get back to even par.
