Today’s final round at The Barclays is shaping up to be one of the better Sunday finishes we have seen this golf season. At the top you have two guys desperate for a win… It has been an inconsistent for both Rickie Fowler and Patrick Reed, and now both guys want to finish on a high note and lock up a spot on the US Ryder Cup team.
Neither Fowler or Reed has claimed a win on the PGA tour this season, however both have been close with 9 top 10 finishes in 24 events for Reed, and 7 in 20 for Fowler. It seems inconsistency has been the consistent story line for both golfer’s season.
If it is consistency Fowler was looking for, he seems to have found it. On one of the tougher courses on the planet, he has just one bogey to go along with 8 birdies and an eagle. However, whether he’s able to hold off a hungry Patrick Reed and surging Adam Scott remains to be seen.
Scott shot a -6 to move within 2 shots of the lead after starting the day 7 back at 1 under. Scott is another golfer desperate for a win. After a blazing start to the 2016 season, including T2/1/1 in late February-early March, Scott has all but disappeared down the stretch with only one top 10 finish since March.
So what are we watching for today? Can one of these three golfers pick up a much needed win? Or will the red-hot youngster Emiliano Grillo or the world’s top golfer Jason Day come from behind and steal a Sunday win.
This is as exciting of a finish to a Barclays as we can remember, and a perfect cap to what has been an unforgettable season. On a killer course, in blazing August heat, who can handle the pressure and shoot low today? We like Reed or Day, but would love to hear what the readers are thinking.
