The Barclays 2012 Results: Nick Watney Wins Tournament At 10-Under

Despite entering the day with a two-stroke deficit, Nick Watney came away victorious on Sunday at New York's famed Bethpage Black, to kick off the 2012 FedEx Cup Playoffs in style.

After firing a 65 on Thursday to open the tournament, Watney needed just a 2-under 69 in his final round to cruise to a three-shot victory on a day when the majority of the field stumbled. With Sergio Garcia, the tournament's 54-hole leader, among the many unable to find his rhythm on day four, 2011 champion Dustin Johnson ascended the leaderboard to finish in a tie for third place at 6-under. Along with Johnson in a tie for third was Garcia, while Brandt Snedeker finished alone in second at 7-under.

Luke Donald, a graduate of Northwest University, also put forth a strong week in New York with a string of consistent performances that put him in a tie for 10th place. Donald posted rounds of 69 and 70 over the weekend to hang around with the leaders, but ultimately was not able to overcome his frustrating final round of 74 on Friday.
