NORTON, Mass. (AP) - Henrik Stenson is picking the right time of the year to start playing like a $10 million Swede.

Coming off a runner-up finish last week in The Barclays, Stenson erased a five-shot deficit in seven holes Sunday. He played bogey-free for a 6-under 65 that gave him a one-shot lead over Rickie Fowler going into the Labor Day finish at the TPC Boston.

Stenson won this event two years ago, and then dominated at the Tour Championship to capture the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus.

Fowler had a 67 and will play with Stenson in the final group.

Charley Hoffman, who had a three-shot lead, had a 41 on the front nine and had a 76. He was six shots behind.
