Barclays Update

Nick Watney continues to play well after two solid rounds at the Barclays Tournament tied for the lead with Sergio Garcia.    Watney shot a first round score of 65, then followed that up with a 69 today.    As for Garcia, he has hung right with him shooting a 66 and 68.

As for other notables, Vijay Singh continues his strong play of the last month or two.   He is a player that continues to defy age and play at a really high level.   A good many players have played well later in their 40’s as Vijay has, but he is rare in the fact that his play has really not dropped off all that much staying in the top 20 in the world for as long as he has.

Tiger Woods is only 3 back, as he continues to show the world that he can play well on Thursday and Friday.  I realize that he has won several times this season, but he has also shown the ability to not play well on Saturday and Sunday in big tournaments this season.  Here is a LINK to the Current Leader Board.

Here is the the projected top 16 in the Fed Ex Cup Standings. (Standings Courtesy of PGATour.com)
