Adam Scott took home last year's Barclays tournament.
Paramus, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) -
The FedExCup playoffs kick off this week at Ridgewood Country Club.
This year's Barclays tournament will be hard-pressed to match the drama and star power atop the final leaderboard from last year. Adam Scott, the 2006 runner-up, closed with a 5-under 66 to grab the title from Gary Woodland, who shared the third-round lead with Matt Kuchar.
Tiger Woods and 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose were among four players that tied for second, while 2005 runner-up Jim Furyk and Phil Mickelson were two strokes off the pace.
Scott birdied the 16th last year to gain a share of the lead. He parred the last two holes, then watched as his competitors failed to match his 11-under par total.
