NORTON, Mass. – Louis Oosthuizen ran away from the field during an 8-under 63 on Sunday that gave him a three-shot lead at the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Here are a few things You Oughta Know as we head into the final round at TPC Boston.
• Oosthuizen’s 54-hole total of 19-under 194 is a new tournament record, breaking the previous mark of 196 set by Mike Weir (2008) and Jason Day (’10). Neither of those players, however, were able to hold on and win.
• Oosthuizen would take over the top spot in the FedEx Cup points rankings if he wins, and Nick Watney, currently T-19, does not finish inside the top 4.
• Oosthuizen rattled off seven consecutive birdies on Sunday. His previous high in a PGA Tour event was four. The Tour record for most in a row is nine, set by Mark Calcavecchia in 2009.
• The third-round leader or co-leader has won 13 of 37 stroke-play events this season.
• Woods enters the final round trailing Oosthuizen by six shots. His largest 54-hole comeback is five shots – 2009 Bay Hill and 2000 Pebble Beach.
