Adam Scott played well enough to effectively end the Deutsche Bank Championship on Sunday, just like most PGA Tour events.
Instead, he still has a full day of work left for his first PGA Tour victory.
Scott built a five-stroke lead through seven holes, then watched several opportunities slip away before settling for a four-under-par 67 at the TPC of Boston in Norton, Mass., and a three-shot lead over Jonathan Kaye.
Scott was at 15-under 198 after finishing with a birdie on the final hole -- but only after missing a 12-foot eagle putt that epitomized his round. He missed five birdie chances from about that range, sometimes even shorter.
Kaye had six birdies on the back nine and had a season-best 63. Darren Clarke converted his birdie chances down the stretch for a 67 that left him only four back at 202, along with Geoff Ogilvy (68) and Justin Rose (68).
Tiger Woods, whose foundation gets the charitable proceeds from the Deutsche Bank Championship, shot a 67 but was eight strokes behind.
Woods has never won a PGA Tour event from more than five shots back.
Tom Watson made a four-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the Jeld-Wen Tradition at Aloha, Ore. -- the final major this season on the Champions Tour -- by one stroke. He finished at three-under-par 69 for a 15-under 273.
Candie Kung was declared the winner of the rain-shortened LPGA State Farm Classic at Springfield, Ill. She finished at 14-under 202 after 54 holes. Laura Davies was one stroke back in second place.
