FedEx Cup Standings 2012: McIlroy Grabs No. 1 Spot After Deutsche Bank Win

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.
