Hunter Mahan fired a final round of 65 on Sunday afternoon at the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey, winning the 2014 Barclays tournament to open up the FexEx Cup playoffs.

Mahan finished the tournament at 14 under par, two shots clear of the unlikely trio of Stuart Appleby, Cameron Tringale and Jason Day, capping off a wild final round which featured multiple lead changes.

The 32-year-old seized command down the homestretch of the back nine, birdying four of the final six holes and finishing with a bogey on 18 to secure the victory.

The bogey, which wasn't aesthetically pleasing or the way Mahan probably wanted to close the show, still must've come as a relief after his tee shot found the crowd. 

With the win, Mahan moves to the top of the FedEx Cup standings. 

Day, who ended up in a tie for second, began the day in the final pair, tied with Jim Furyk for the lead at nine under.

But bogeys in crucial spots created opportunities for other players, and Day finished his round a solid, but not good enough, three under par.

Furyk capped his tournament with a one-under round, finishing at 10 under for the week and in eighth place.

It was Appleby who made the biggest single run on Sunday, coming in with a bogey free round of 65 to charge up the leaderboard and secure a second-place finish.
