The Barclays 2012 Final Results: Nick Watney Finishes 10-Under, Wins Tournament

Nick Watney has won the 2012 Barclays tournament from Bethpage Black Course in New York with a 2-under 69 on Sunday. He finished 10-under for the tournament, three strokes ahead of runner-up Brandt Snedeker.

Watney entered Sunday trailing Sergio Garcia by two strokes, as he finished Saturday's round at even-par, while Garcia ended the day at 2-under. However, Watney birdied six holes on Sunday, which helped offset four bogeys. Meanwhile, Garcia fell apart in the middle of the round, bogeying three out of four holes during the stretch from eight through 11. He also bogeyed on holes one and 18, and only had one birdie on the day.

Canadian Graham DeLaet had the best round of the day, shooting a 6-under 65 to vault himself into a tie for fifth place overall. Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson's solid 3-under effort allowed him to finish in a tie for third with Garcia.

Sunday's win was the sixth of Watney's PGA career, and likely the best to date. Meanwhile, a guy who has more wins than anyone on the tour completely imploded, as Tiger Woods shot 5-over on the day, and finished at plus-1 for the tournament.

Colorado State University product Martin Laird shot a 6-over 77 for the second straight day. He was done in by six bogeys and a double-bogey. However, during a stretch in which he bogeyed four out of seven holes, he also nailed two birdie putts. Laird finished the tournament at 8-over.

2012 Barclays Leaderboard: Sergio Garcia, Nick Watney Tied Atop Sunday Leaderboard

The final pairing is now out on the course at The Barclays and Sergio Garcia is making his bid to go back-to-back on the PGA Tour. The precocious Spaniard had his putter working last week at Sedgfield, picking up a win and almost certainly locking up a spot for the European team at next month's Ryder Cup. Garcia's had the flatstick rolling true again this week but he opened his round with a bogey at the first to drop a shot. He did, however, manage a par at the par-3 third hole that has given him fits throughout his career, including three straight bogeys there this week. Sergio's playing partner, Nick Watney, posted a red number at at the par-4 second hold to pull even for the lead at 9-under.

Colorado State's Martin Laird finished his week at Bethpage with an ugly final-round 77, moving him to 8-over for the championship. The talented Scot played well on Thursday and Friday, making the cut with relative ease but back-to-back rounds of 77 on the weekend put him near the very bottom of the weekend leaderboard. Fortunately for Laird, those first two rounds, and his steady play on Tour all season, locked up his spot at the Deutsche Bank next week. He's currently projected at No. 41 in the FedEx Cup standings. The top 100 of 125 players move on to Boston.

As Jason Day's early morning 66 demonstrated, there's still plenty of time for jostling atop the leaderboard as the field tries to advance onto the second leg of the playoffs in Boston next week.

2012 Barclays: TV Schedule, Tee Times, Pairings For Friday

Padraig Harrington, who fired a seven under par 64 on Thursday to take a one-shot lead in The Barclays, is scheduled to start his second round at 12:22 Friday afternoon. He will be paired once again with Ted Potter, Jr. and Troy Matteson, with whom he played his opening round. Nick Watney, whose six-under 65 put him just one shot back of Harrington, will begin his second round on Bethpage Black at 12:33. Thursday's other 65 was shot by Brian Harman, who starts at 1:17.

The group drawing the most attention on Friday, much as they did Thursday, will be the 1:06 tee time of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Zach Johnson. After engaging in some pre-tournament trash talk, world No. 1 McIlroy and No. 3 Woods seemed at ease Thursday. Both players got off to solid starts, with Woods' -3 putting him in a tie for 14th and besting McIlroy's round by one shot. Zach Johnson, lost in the hype surrounding the McIlroy-Woods pairing, also finished his round at -3.

The world's second-ranked player, Luke Donald, will also start at 12:44, with Phil Mickelson and Scott Piercy from the first tee. Bubba Watson, who started the day fifth in the FedEx Cup standings and shot a one-under 70, starts on the back nine at 8:16 with Hunter Mahan and Carl Pettersson.
