Well, there have been five American winners in the last six editions of The Barclays on the PGA Tour. With such a strong home-based contingent in contention in the first FedExCup play off event, then the trophy could be staying at home.
The only non-winner in the last six editions has been Australia’s Adam Scott who triumphed two years ago at the lIberty National Golf Club. The 2015 edition of The Barclays goes back to Plainfield, the 2011 hosts which was won on that occasion by Dustin Johnson.
Johnson sits as one of the front-runners in The Barclays 2015 betting at 12/1, joint third favourite with Justin Rose. Jordan Spieth tops the market at a short 6/1 followed by US PGA Championship winner Jason Day.
The likes of Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Jim Furyk are all around the 28/1 mark making up a strong US challenge. There’s no Rory McIlroy who skips the tournament and no Tiger Woods who didn’t make it into the top 125 on the FedExCup standings to reach the play offs.
