Rory McIlroy’s six-shot comeback to win the Deutsche Bank Championship is the largest of his PGA Tour career and his second-largest as a pro. He was seven shots back before winning the 2014 BMW PGA Championship.
Here are some other statistical notes from the proceedings at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass.
• McIlroy finished at 15 under par. To get to that score, he had to play the final 69 holes in 19 under after starting the first round par-bogey-triple bogey.
• Since the beginning of 2010, McIlroy has two more wins (12) than any other player. Jason Day is next with 10.
• McIlroy led the Deutsche Bank field in both driving distance and putting average, the first time in his career he has led both categories.
• McIlroy made it seven years in a row that the Deutsche Bank winner has come from behind after 54 holes.
• Paul Casey's runner-up finish was his sixth on the PGA Tour.
• Casey held a three-shot lead entering the final round. Nine of the last 10 players with exactly a three-shot lead after 54 holes on the PGA Tour did not win.
• Adam Scott rallied with a 65, his lowest round this week, to finish fourth, four shots back. he birdies six of his last nine holes.
• This was Scott's second straight top-5 finish (he was T-4 last week at The Barclays).
• It was Scott's best worldwide finish since his win at Doral in March.
• Patrick Reed, who closed with a 69, was 6-for-7 scrambling in the final round and a combined 16-for-18 scrambling over last three rounds.
