Barclays Playoffs Golf Predictions
Barclays Golf History
The Barclays golf competition started in 1967 under the name of the Westchester Classic.
Since 1976, it has been renamed several times due to the change of the main sponsor.
Beginning in 2007, the tournament's name became The Barclays, and The Barclays became one of the four "playoff tournaments" of the FedEx Cup series.
Many of the world's current top players have won the event as well, including two-time champions Ernie Els and Sergio Garcia, and four-time champion Vijay Singh.
As the first of four playoff events, The Barclays plays a leading role in the FedExCup, the season-long competition that is the centerpiece of the PGA TOUR season.
Ridgewood Country Club - FedEx Cup Golf 2014
The Ridgewood Country Club golf course was designed in 1929 and features a compelling mixture of tough terrain, wide open fairways and obstacles that will leave golfers guessing at every turn.
Perhaps the most intriguing hole on the championship course is the first, a 380-yard Par 4 with a sloping green and a large pond that sits adjacent to the fairway.
The greens are seeded with poa annua and bentgrass.
The fairways and tees are seed with poa annua, bentgrass and ryegrass. It was certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 1996.
In the last 6 years, RCC has invested almost $8 million into the restoration of its golf course.
Among the improvements have been the construction of 26 new tees, a new irrigation system, a new Greens and Grounds complex, an expansion of the pond on hole #1 on the Center nine, and the rebuilding of all the bunkers back to their original A.W. Tillinghast design.
The course includes three challenging and scenic nines known as Center, West, and East, referring to their location relative to the clubhouse.
The country club has hosted the golf tournament twice before (in 2008 and 2010), which attracts some of the world’s best players.
Next Golf Courses To Host The Barclays Playoffs
- 2015 – Plainfield Country Club, Edison, N.J.
- 2016 – Bethpage State Park's Black Course, Farmingdale, N.Y.
2012 Barclays Playoffs Winner
Watney turned a two-shot deficit against Sergio Garcia into a three-shot lead in a decisive four-hole stretch around the turn at Bethpage Black, and no one got closer than two shots.
Watney made a 10-foot birdie putt on the last hole for a 2-under-par 69 to take the opening event of the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoffs.
Watney, who earned $1.44 million for his fifth PGA Tour victory, won by three shots over second-place Brandt Snedeker (70).
Watney goes from 49th to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings and is assured a shot at the $10 million bonus at the Tour Championship next month in Atlanta.
Watney finished at 10-under 274
2011 Barclays Playoffs Winner
Dustin Johnson wrapped up the trivial pursuits at Plainfield Country Club to win The Barclays Championship.
He collected a first prize of $1.44 million to go top of the FedExCup rankings and up to World No.4.
But, crucially, it also meant he was last to the leave the course in the dash to get out of town.
Johnson fired a third, and final, round six under par 65 to finish the reduced to 54-holes event at 19 under par, two shots clear of overnight leader Matt Kuchar with Brant Snedeker and Vijay Singh tied third at 16 under par.
World No.1 Luke Donald was 11 under par and Phil Mickelson was eight under par in a bizarre day of threeballs, split tees.
2010 Barclays Playoffs Winner
Kuchar, one of the most affable players on the PGA Tour who flashes a grin about as often as he hits a shot during a round of golf, made birdie on the first playoff hole Sunday to topple Martin Lairdand win The Barclays, the first of four postseason events in the FedExCup playoffs.
Kuchar, who took over the top spot in the FedExCup race for the $10 million grand prize, knocked his second shot out of heavy rough from 190 yards on Ridgewood Country Club's 18th hole to just 2 feet and knocked in the winning putt. He shot 5-under-par 66 to finish at 12 under and won for the third time on Tour.
It was his 10th top-10 in 22 starts this season. "It's been an awesome year," Kuchar said. "I knew it was a matter of time. It was one of those things that I knew if I put myself in contention enough times I was going to break through."
Laird, who shot a final-round 71, let victory slip from his hands when he three-putted from 23 feet on the final hole in regulation to fall into the playoff. Still, he jumped from 95th to third in the FedExCup race and most likely secured a spot in The Tour Championship in Atlanta, the final event of the playoffs.
2009 Barclays Playoffs Winner
Heath Slocum rolled in a 20-foot par putt on the final hole to remain at 9-under, which gave him the one-stroke victory over Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington and Steve Stricker. Slocum's winning total was 275.
