About the Deutsche Bank Championship
The Deutsche Bank Championship is in its eighth year as a FedExCup playoff event on the PGA TOUR, and 2013 concluded with Henrik Stenson atop the leaderboard at 22-under-par 262. Two strokes ahead of Steve Stricker. The championship victory was Stenson’s first PGA TOUR win since 2009, but he did not stop there. New England fans had the opportunity to watch the eventual 2013 TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola and FedExCup champion. Since its inception, the Deutsche Bank Championship has generated more than $25 million for the Tiger Woods Foundation and New England-based charities.
