Patrick Reed

Beginning the day a stroke off Rickie Fowler’s 9-under-par lead, Patrick Reed made four birdies and three bogeys en route to a 1-under 70, good for a one-stroke win over 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler at 9-under 275. Reed claims his fifth career PGA TOUR win in his 121st start at the age of 26 years, 23 days.

 

With the win, he collects 2,000 FedExCup points and moves to No. 1 in the standings.

2013 Wyndham Championship

2014 CareerBuilder Challenge, World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship

2015 Tournament of Champions

Reed at The Barclays: 2013/MC, 2014/T9, 2015/T62, 2016/1st

 

Reed’s results in the FedExCup: 2013/54, 2014/21, 2015/12

 

The only player to win The Barclays and FedExCup title in the same season was Vijay Singh in 2008.

 

This week’s event marked his 12th start in a FedExCup Playoffs event. His only other top-10 finish among those starts was a T4 at the 2015 Deutsche Bank Championship.

 

At No. 7 in the FedExCup standings beginning the week, Reed was the highest-ranked player in this week’s field without a win this season.

 

Reed has now come from behind in the final round to win on two occasions. At the 2015 Tournament of Champions, he trailed Hideki Matsuyama and Jimmy Walker by two strokes after 54 holes.

 

In the 50-year history of The Barclays, a player has come from behind in the final round to win 25 times now, including Hunter Mahan in 2014 and Jason Day in 2015. In 1998 and 2011, The Barclays was reduced to 54 holes due to weather.

 

On 21 of 40 occasions now, a winner has emerged after trailing headed into the final round of a PGA TOUR event this season.

 

This marked the third time Reed has held a 36-hole lead outright and gone on to win. Among others, he joins Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson and Sam Snead of those who won their first three events leading alone after 36 holes.

 

Reed was making his 25th start of the 2015-16 PGA TOUR Season this week, with his The Barclays win marking his 10th top-10 finish of the season. With 12, only Dustin Johnson has more.

 

Before this week, Reed’s closest brushes with victory came in the form of runner-up finishes at the Tournament of Champions and Valero Texas Open.

 

Reed becomes the 13th different player to win in his 20s on the PGA TOUR this season (16 wins), compared to 22 different players in their 30s and two different players in their 40s.

Sean O’Hair

Beginning the week at outside the top 100 in FedExCup points at No. 108, Sean O’Hair kept his season alive thanks largely to his final-round, 5-under 66 and T2 finish at 8-under 276. He moves to No. 15 in FedExCup points.

 

O’Hair’s T2 showing marks his best since losing in a playoff to Jordan Spieth at the 2015 Valspar Championship.

 

O’Hair hit 12 of 14 fairways, 12 of 18 greens and needed 26 putts (his fewest of the week) to complete his round Sunday.

 

To earn his way back into this season’s Playoffs, O’Hair posted one top-10 finish (Shell Houston Open/T10) among five top-25 showings. He missed three cuts in his last four starts prior to this week (Wyndham Championship/T22).

 

Prior to last season, O’Hair had struggled and not made it to the Playoffs since 2012. He finished 170th and 160th in FedExCup points in 2013 and 2014, respectively.

 

O’Hair was making his eighth start in The Barclays in the FedExCup era, with this week’s T2 finish being his first top-20 showing. In 22 FedExCup Playoffs starts, O’Hair has now collected seven top-10 finishes.

 

O’Hair, a four-time winner on the PGA TOUR, was in search of his first win since the 2011 RBC Canadian Open.

Emiliano Grillo

PGA TOUR rookie Emiliano Grillo birdied his 72nd hole to close with a 2-under 69 and claim a share of second place with Sean O’Hair.

 

With the finish, Argentina’s Grillo jumps from No. 34 to No. 6 in the FedExCup standings, making himself a lock for the TOUR Championship.

 

All seven rookies who qualified for the TOUR Championship won PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year honors:

 

Year Player FedExCup Finish
2015 Daniel Berger 11th
2013 Jordan Spieth 7th
2012 John Huh 29th
2011 Keegan Bradley 20th

Jason Day

Defending The Barclays champion, World No. 1 and FedExCup No. 2 Jason Day posted a 2-under 69 in the final round, good to get to 7-under 277 and a share of fourth place with 2013 The Barclays champion Adam Scott and Gary Woodland. Day came into the week leading in FedExCup points.

 

A year ago, Day fired a final-round, 8-under 62 (equaling the lowest score of his career and his lowest in a FedExCup Playoffs event) to finish The Barclays at 19-under 261 at Plainfield Country Club, good for a six-stroke victory over Henrik Stenson.

 

Day’s T4 finish this week marks his third top-10 finish in the event; 2015/1st, 2014/T2 and 2010/T5. He has now collected 12 top-10 finishes in 28 FedExCup Playoffs starts.

 

Adam Scott

2013 The Barclays champions Adam Scott could manage no better than an even-par 71 inSunday’s final round, putting him at 7-under 277 (T4). He moves to No. 4 in the FedExCup standings.

 

Scott was making his 10th appearance at The Barclays after winning this event in 2013 at Liberty National, his only FedExCup Playoffs victory in 30 starts now. Scott’s only other top-10 finish at The Barclays was a T9 in 2010. He missed the cut at this event last season and failed to advance further in the FedExCup Playoffs. He is looking to advance to the TOUR Championship for the seventh time in his career.

 

Scott will team with Jason Day to defend their World Cup of Golf title in Australia in November.

 

Gary Woodland

Beginning the final round four strokes back at 5-under 208, Gary Woodland closed with a 2-under 69 to get to 7-under 277 and claim a share of fourth place with past champions Jason Day (2015) and Adam Scott (2013).

 

Woodland was making his fifth start in The Barclays this week, with his T4 finish this week marking his second top-10 finish (T2/2013).

 

With his top-5 finish, Woodland moves to No. 24 in FedExCup points, up from No. 42.

 

Woodland was making his 23rd start of the 2015-16 PGA TOUR Season this week, with the T4 marking is third top-10 finish (T4/the Memorial Tournament, 2nd/Barracuda Championship).

 

Woodland was in search of his third career win on the PGA TOUR and first since the 2013 Barracuda Championship.

 

Rickie Fowler

Rickie Fowler, who led by a stroke after 54 holes, finished double bogey, birdie, bogey at Nos. 16-18 to post a 3-over 74 and settle for T7. He moves from 28th to No. 16 in FedExCup points.

 

Fowler’s 55-consecutive holes without a bogey is a personal best on the PGA TOUR, besting 53 from the 2010 Memorial Tournament. This week’s streak also marked the longest recorded in The Barclays since hole information began in 1983. Ian Poulter had the longest with 45 in 2010.

 

Fowler was making his seventh start in The Barclays this week and is coming off a missed cut last year. He now has three top-10 finishes in the event, a pair of T9s, in 2013 and 2014 and a T7 in 2016.

 

Fowler was making his 22nd start in the FedExCup Playoffs this week, where he has now collected seven top-10 finishes; The Barclays (2013/T9, 2014/T9, 2016/T7), Deutsche Bank Championship (2015/1st), BMW Championship (2014/T4, 2015/T4) and TOUR Championship (2014/8th).

 

Fowler was in search of his fourth career PGA TOUR win and first since last year’s Deutsche Bank Championship. He has now collected eight top-10 finishes in 21 starts this season, four of which were top-5 showings. He lost in a playoff to Hideki Matsuyama at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

 

Fowler came into the week at No. 12 in USA Ryder Cup points. The Barclays was the last week for American players to earn points and qualify for the Ryder Cup team to be led by Captain Davis Love III at Hazeltine next month.

 

Miscellaneous Notes

2011 The Barclays champion Dustin Johnson struggled to a 2-over 73 in the final round to finish T18 at 2-under 282. This marked Johnson’s eighth appearance at The Barclays. In addition to the 2011 win, he finished inside the top 10 in 2010 (T9), 2012 (T3) and 2015 (T9).

 

With his T10 finish at 5-under 279 at Bethpage, Jordan Spieth is seeking to become the first player to successfully defend a FedExCup title. Last year, Spieth missed the cut in the first two FedExCup Playoffs events, before finishing T13 at the BMW Championship and winning the TOUR Championship on his way to claiming the FedExCup title.

 

With his top-10 finish in New York, Spieth moves to No. 10 in FedExCup points. After The Barclays last year, he was at No. 2.

 

Spieth’s T10 finish this week marks his seventh of the 2015-16 PGA TOUR Season and 39th of his TOUR career.
