Browne wins Deutsche Bank Championship

Norton:

The third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship ended in a five way tie for the lead. The fourth and final round was quite different. Olin Browne pulled away with a round of 67 to win the tournament at fourteen under par, just one stroke ahead of Jason Bohn. Browne, who failed to keep his PGA Tour card the last two years, earned himself a two-year exemption with the victory. Bohn could have forced a playoff but an eagle chip landed wide left of the cup and sealed the victory for Browne. Reno-Tahoe Open champion Vaughn Taylor shot a 68 to finish third at 10-under 274. Charles Howell III had a 67 and tied three others at nine under. Tiger Woods shot two over par on the front nine but recovered with two birdies on the back to finish at par on the day. Woods improved a stroke a day from the second to third to fourth rounds, but was far from his opening round of 65. It was his worse finish at a PGA event after leading after the first round. (AP)
