NORTON, Massachusetts - Sweden's Henrik Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship by two shots with a five-under-par round of 66, leaving him with a tournament record-tying total of 22-under 262 at the TPC Boston on Monday.

Stenson, enjoying a rich run of form, moves above Tiger Woods into top spot in the FedExCup standings after the second of the PGA Tour's four lucrative playoff events.

The Swede's victory was his first on the US circuit since the 2009 Players Championship but follows a second place finish at the British Open and third spot at the PGA Championships.

"It's been a great week, ball-striking wise, and the putter was working nicely for me here on the weekend," said a delighted Stenson.

"It's nice to come through and win a big event after all the good finishes and getting close to winning like I've been the last couple of months. It's great to get one my belt.

"I got off to a bad start (bogeying the second hole)... but I came back with three straight birdies on four, five and six to put me back into the ball-game. I made some nice putts today and just kept it going. I have been playing nicely for a long time."

Veteran American Steve Stricker finished second, two shots behind Stenson, after firing a four-under 67 to secure himself an automatic place on the United States Presidents Cup team.

Canadian Graham DeLaet shot a solid 69 to finish alone in third, four adrift of Stenson, to follow up on his second place at The Barclays last week.

DeLaet sealed his place on the International team for the Presidents Cup, becoming only the second Canadian to achieve the honour, and rose to fifth in the FedExCup standings.
