The Fedex Cup playoffs are designed to give the end of the PGA Tour season more meaning. Four events bring together the best players from throughout the year to battle it out for the Fedex Cup trophy and a winning bonus cheque of $10,000,000.
The Barclays did exactly that. The best players from 2013 went back and forth Sunday, with Adam Scott outlasting Justin Rose, Phil Mickleson and Tiger Woods to win by a single stroke.
The win takes the Aussie to a career-best number two in the world, and number two in the 2013 Fedex Cup standings.
Having already won his first Major at Augusta, Scott is giving Tiger a strong challenge for 2013 Player Of The Year.
