The Barclays 2012 Winner: Nick Watney Wins By Three Strokes

Nick Watney was able to bring home the 2012 Barclays championship, winning the tournament at Bethpage with a score of 10-under.

Watney began the day at eight-under par, two strokes behind Sergio Garcia, however Garcia faltered on Sunday, allowing Watney to move into first place. Garcia finished the tournament tied for third at six-under with Dustin Johnson.

Brandt Snedeker was hot on Watney's trail all afternoon, but could not make his move into first place. He finished in second with a score of seven under par.

Tiger Woods had a meltdown on the course Sunday, shooting five-over par to finish the tournament at one-over.

This is the fifth career win for Watney, and his first FedEx Cup playoff event win. A complete leaderboard can be found HERE.
