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.
Plainfield Country Club - FedEx Cup Golf 2015
Opened in 1890, the 18-hole "Plainfield" course at the Plainfield Country Club facility in Edison, New Jersey features 6,865 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72.
The course rating is 73.6 and it has a slope rating of 136 on Bent grass. Plainfield Country Club sprawls across gently rolling hills that Donald Ross, the designer of the course, tried to closely follow in his design.
Ross was successful in creating a delightfully uneven golf course with greens that slope, twist, and turn.
Many of the challenging greens slope from back to front and feature sharp drop-offs. The course has a traditional design that has been ranked as one of the best in the country by several water hazards come into play on five holes.
There are also bunkers treacherously lurking around the greens and fairways. The final three holes are the most challenging, with the 18th hole rounding off the course with a difficult par 4, that also features, the course's most severe green, which features a false front and bunkers both left and right.

Hunter Mahan broke up the log jam at the top of The Barclays leaderboard down the stretch as he birdied five of the final eight holes to capture the FedExCup event at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J.
The hot streak pulled him away for a two-stroke victory over Stuart Appleby, Jason Day and Cameron Tringale and vaulted him from 62nd place in the FedExCup points standings to the top spot with three events to go in his quest for the $10 million bonus and the coveted title the star is looking for.
Mahan matched the best final round at six-under-par and ended the tournament at 14 under (66-71-68-65—270) to win his sixth PGA TOUR title.
