Deutsche Bank Leaderboard: Rory McIlroy Takes Lead At 19-Under With Tiger Woods 3 Strokes Back

The final round of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship is underway from TPC Boston, and it has been Rory McIlroy who has emerged with a one-stroke lead at 19-under just seven holes into his round.

McIlroy's final group playing partner Louis Oosthuizen opened the day with a seemingly-comfortable three-stroke advantage, but double bogeyed the par-4 fifth hole to tumble down the leaderboard and cough up his lead. Tiger Woods, playing in the second-to-last group with Dustin Johnson, has also made plenty of noise and remains poised to make a run in his back nine at only three shots back.

Woods birdied holes No. 4, 6 and 7 to reach 16-under par and remain on pace with McIlroy heading into a daunting final nine, as the two men will hope to hold off Oosthuizen and a late-charging Phil Mickelson (3-under through 11 holes on Sunday) to take the Deutsche Bank crown.
