The Barclays 2012 Final Results: Nick Watney Birdies 6 Times On His Way To Barclays Championship

Nick Watney has won The Barclays 2012 tournament at Bethpage Black in New York with a 2-under 69 on Sunday. He finished 10-under for the tournament, and three strokes ahead of runner-up Brandt Snedeker.

Watney entered Sunday trailing Sergio Garcia by two strokes, as he finished Saturday's round at even-par while Garcia ended the day 2-under. However, Watney birdied six holes on Sunday, which helped offset four bogeys. Meanwhile, Garcia fell apart in the middle of the round, bogeying three out of four holes during the stretch from eight through 11. He also bogeyed on holes one and 18, and only had one birdie on the day.

Sunday's win was the sixth of Watney's PGA career, and likely the best to date. Meanwhile, a guy who has more wins than anyone on the tour completely imploded, as Tiger Woods shot 5-over on the day, and finished at plus-1 for the tournament.

Texas native Bob Estes entered Sunday four shots off the lead, but he struggled to a 3-over 74 in the final round, finishing the tournament tied for 10th at 3-under.

Despite shooting his worst round of the tournament with a 1-over par round of 72, Bob Estes is still in contention after the third round and is tied for fourth place at 6-under par for the tournament, and is four strokes behind Garcia.

The Barclays 2012: TV Schedule, Tee Times, Pairings For Friday

Padraig Harrington, who fired a seven under par 64 on Thursday to take a one-shot lead in The Barclays, is scheduled to start his second round at 12:22 Friday afternoon. He will be paired once again with Ted Potter, Jr. and Troy Matteson, with whom he played his opening round. Nick Watney, whose six-under 65 put him just one shot back of Harrington, will begin his second round on Bethpage Black at 12:33. Thursday's other 65 was shot by Brian Harman, who starts at 1:17.

The group drawing the most attention on Friday, much as they did Thursday, will be the 1:06 tee time of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Zach Johnson. After engaging in some pre-tournament trash talk, world No. 1 McIlroy and No. 3 Woods seemed at ease Thursday. Both players got off to solid starts, with Woods' -3 putting him in a tie for 14th and besting McIlroy's round by one shot. Zach Johnson, lost in the hype surrounding the McIlroy-Woods pairing, also finished his round at -3.

As for other notable groups, the international trio of Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia and Louis Oosthuizen tee off at 12:44 from the tenth tee box. The world's second-ranked player, Luke Donald, will also start at 12:44, with Phil Mickelson and Scott Piercy from the first tee. Bubba Watson, who started the day fifth in the FedEx Cup standings and shot a one-under 70, starts on the back nine at 8:16 with Hunter Mahan and Carl Pettersson.

Houston-born Roberto Castro shot a 76 on Thursday, and is set to tee off at 1:28. Dallas' Harrison Frazar tees off at 1:39, looking to improve on a first-round 75. Bob Estes of Austin will start his round at 8:38.

Television coverage begins at 1:00 CT on Golf Channel.

2012 Barclays: Padraig Harrington Still In Lead As First Day Draws To A Close

Day one of The Barclays is quickly drawing to a close, and it looks very unlikely that anyone is going to be catching Irishman Padraig Harrington before the end of the night. Harrington put together a great game in the first day, ending at 7-under. Nick Watney and Brian Harmon are both close behind, having shot 65s on the course for 6-under scores.

Texas native Bob Estas has not yet finished his first round of 18 holes but is currently stuck in an eight-way tie for 27th place on the leaderboard with a 2-under score. Many of the big names like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Luke Donald are all stuck in a tie for 14th place with 3-under scores.

The round has still not been completed, but it's unlikely we'll see much of a shake up near the top with most of the bigger names already finished with their golfing.
