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.
