2012 Deutsche Bank Championship Purse: Rory McIlroy Takes Home $1.44 Million

Rory McIlroy has won the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, and he was rewarded handsomely for his victory on Monday. The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland takes home $1.44 million after coming back from three strokes down to start the day. Louis Oosthuizen, who started the day on top, lost a nice chunk of change with his final-round stumble. Still, the South African won't go home anywhere close to empty-handed, with an $864,000 payday.

Tiger Woods, one of the highest-earning athletes in the world thanks to his Nike endorsement, finished in third and gets $544,000 for his efforts. With these winnings, Woods is the first PGA Tour golfer to amass over $100 million in career earnings.

Phil Mickelson finished in a fourth-place tie with Dustin Johnson. Each will receive $352,000 for the weekend's work. The winnings for the rest of the top ten are as follows:

6. Brandt Snedeker -- $288,000

t-7. Adam Scott -- $258,000

t-7. Jeff Overton -- $258,000

9. Bryce Molder -- $232,000

t-10. Kevin Stadler -- $208,000

t-10. Ryan Moore -- $208,000

Deutsche Bank Championship 2012 Results: Rory McIlroy Takes The Title

Rory McIlroy came from three strokes behind Louis Oosthuizen on the final day to win the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. McIlroy shot a final-round 67 and finished 20-under for the weekend, one stroke ahead of the second-place Oosthuizen.

Oosthuizen's final round took an unfortunate turn with a double bogey on the fifth hole. Three holes later, McIlroy took the lead with a birdie on the eighth, and it was one he would never relinquish.

Tiger Woods took third place with an impressive final round that saw him shoot five birdies and no bogeys. Woods shot 66 for the day and finished two strokes behind McIlroy.

Arizona State graduate Phil Mickelson matched Tiger's 5-under day by posting three birdies on the back-nine. Lefty's strong finish moved him from ninth at the beginning of the day to fourth by the end.

Ryan Moore, who lives in Scottsdale, also came through with a big finish. He struggled on the back-nine, with three bogeys and a double bogey before getting back on track to birdie the last two holes and go 10-under for the weekend in 10th.

Fellow Scottsdale resident Bryce Molder was even for his final round, and ended up one stroke ahead of Moore for ninth place.
