If you’re a betting person, and, let’s face it, you are, you’ve got to like what you see at the Barclays, the PGA Tour’s opening leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Adam Scott and Cameron Tringale sit atop the leader board at eight under par. Scott put together a resurgent round of golf, hitting the shot of the day on 18, allowing him to birdie into the clubhouse.
Scott told the Golf Channel after his round, “It’s an important time of the year to play well. There’s so much riding on the line especially at Ridgewood, a classic northeast-style golf course. It would be really nice to get my name on a trophy here at this one."
Rory McIlroy, who was an unspeakable 4-1 on the morning line according to Odds Shark, stumbled on Thursday and had a Freaky Friday of a different nature shooting 65—a nine-stroke swing from Thursday’s round.
Now that the cut is behind us, the Barclays demands to be shaken, stirred and re-served for the weekend.
Read on to see who’s worth buying and who’s worth selling on this first leg of the FedEx Cup.
