PGA Golf: Kuchar Defeats Laird in Playoff to Win The Barclays

Atlanta, GA 8/30/2010 03:59 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Matt Kuchar won The Barclays with a score of 12-under-par after beating out Martin Laird in a playoff.

 

Kuchar began the final round five shots off the lead, but closed with a five-under 66 score.

 

Kuchar, who earned $1.35 million and leads the PGA Tour money list for the first time in his career, and Laird finished at 12-under 272.

 

Kuchar had nine top 10s this year to earn a spot on his first Ryder Cup team, but had not earned a trophy thus far. The victory put him atop the FedEx Cup standings, which could net him a $10 million prize if he ends the season at this position. This victory, the third of his career, likely will move him to a career-best No. 10 in the world ranking, according to ESPN.

 

Tiger Woods, who started the playoffs at No. 112 in the standings, closed with a 4-under 67 to easily make the top 100 who advance to the second round next week at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Woods tied for 12th, his best finish since June, and moved up to No. 65.
