The Barclays at Bethpage Black proved to be a tournament the course would win in the final round. Nick Watney was the only golfer to play decent in the 4th and final round. Sergio Garcia who had a 2 stroke lead going into the fianl rouns shot a 4 over today to come in tied for 3rd. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson both shot 5 over rounds of 76 to come in tied for 38th. Nick Watney played a heck of a final round to take first place.
Watney shot a 2 under 69 to take the Barclays. Watney had 6 birdies and 4 bogeys today. Tiger Woods 6 bogies one double bogey and 3 birdies in his final round. Woods had 118 putts this week at Bethpage, I can’t remember Tiger putting this poorly in some time. Heck I can’t remember Tiger ever putting this poorly since he has been on the PGA Tour.
Phil Mickelson has 7 bogies and 2 birdies in his final round and 2 birdies. Phil Mickelson never really got his putter working this week either. Just goes to show you how tough the greens can be at Bethpage Black.
