The Barclays 2012: Nick Watney Wins By 3 Strokes

Nick Watney overtook Sergio Garcia on the eighth hole, and held on to win the The Barclays 2012 at 10-under overall.

Watney entered Sunday's final round two strokes behind Sergio Garcia, but Garcia faltered mightily down the stretch. He ended the day at four-over and dropping down to a tie for third place.

Brandt Snedeker finished the tournament in second place at seven-under overall, finishing one-under on the day.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson both finished one-over on the day, and tied for 38th place. A knee and back injury hampered Woods early on in the tournament, and Mickelson just couldn't string together consistent play, going 68, 74, 67 and 76 over four days on the course.

This was Watney's first tournament win of the season, good for $1.44 million. Snedecker won $864,000 and Garcia and Dustin Johnson won $464,000 each.

The biggest gainer of the day was Canadian Graham DeLaet, who jumped 38 spots on the leaderboard. He closed out Sunday's play with six-under, best of all golfers. He finished tied for fifth, and won $281,000.
