Sweden's Henrik Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship by two shots with a five-under-par round of 66, leaving him with a tournament record-tying total of 22-under 262 at the TPC Boston on Monday, reports news agency AFP.

Stenson, enjoying a rich run of form, moves above Tiger Woods into top spot in the FedExCup standings after the second of the PGA Tour's four lucrative playoff events.

The Swede's victory was his first on the U.S. circuit since the 2009 Players Championship but follows a second place finish at the British Open and third spot at the PGA Championships.

"I just played a little bit better in the final round and I'm really pleased with the way I bounced back," Stenson told AFP.

"I got off to a bad start (bogeying the second hole)... but I came back with three straight birdies on four, five and six to put me back into the ball-game. I made some nice putts today and just kept it going. I have been playing nicely for a long time."
