Rickie Fowler made the most of a late error by Henrik Stenson to claim the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Overnight leader Stenson looked in control of the event, holding a one-stroke lead on the 16th tee but after Fowler had fired his tee shot onto the green, the Swede saw his approach held up by the wind and drop in the water.

It meant he had to settle for a double bogey allowing his playing partner to creep ahead of him and that’s how it stayed at TPC Boston.

Fowler’s closing 68 saw him finish the week on 15-under for his four rounds, one ahead of Stenson who could only manage a 70 on Monday.

The win moves Fowler up to fourth in the overall standings and having already won twice around the world in 2015, the American believes his previous experience helped see him through.

“Being in those positions before, I definitely felt very calm out there,” he said. “I knew what I was trying to do. Knew what I had to do. And was very much ready to do it.”

Elsewhere at the Deutsche Bank, which finished on Monday due to the Labor Day celebrations, second round leader Charley Hoffman took third on his own on 11-under thanks to a final day 67.

Behind him Jim Furyk was part of a five-man tie for fourth, while fourth back Jason Day finished joint 12th to maintain his lead in the FedEx Cup standings.
