About the The Barclays Golf Tournament:

The Barclays was played, under a couple different names, in Westchester County, N.Y., from 1967 through 2007. 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.

2014 The Barclays
• When: Aug. 21-24
• Where: Ridgewood Country Club, Paramus, New Jersey

2013 Tournament
Adam Scott fired a final-round 66 to outlast the field and win by one stroke. Scott finished ahead of most of the other leaders at 11-under 273, and waited to see if anyone would catch him. Justin Rose reached the 18th hole tied with Scott, but bogied. Tiger Woods, playing with what appeared to be major back pain, birdied the 16th and 17th holes to get to 10-under, but his birdie attempt on the final hole stopped just short of the cup. Graham DeLaet and Gary Woodland tied Rose and Woods for second place. It was the 10th PGA Tour win of Adam Scott's career.
