The final round of the Barclays was truly some exciting golf to watch.
Cameron Tringale and Matt Kuchar both played strong rounds of golf on the final day but fell just short of the winner and champion at The Barclays, Hunter Mahan, who shot 14-under-par for the tournament.
Cameron Tringale was celebrating his 27th birthday and almost gave himself the gift of a Fed Ex Cup Playoff win. He actually was tied for the lead at 13-under-par after hitting a birdie on the 17th hole, but shot a bogey on the 18th to knock him back to 12-under. That bogey left the door open for Mahan seal the deal.
Tringale’s performance in Paramus, N.J. was easily enough to advance him in the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs to the Deutsche Bank BMW Championship in Boston.
Matt Kuchar also played well in the final round of The Barclays shooting 4-under-par 67 on Sunday. His 11-under-par for the tournament put him in a three-way tie for fifth place with Ernie Els and William McGirt.
On the 18th hole, Kuchar hit a 50-foot bunker shot that electrified the crowd before heading into the clubhouse. Here is the footage care of pgatour.com:
