The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs for professional golfers on the PGA Tour at The Barclays tournament in 2014, which is being played from August 21-24, 2014, at the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey.
The Barclays is the first tournament in the PGA Tour's playoff system for the rich FedEx Cup. A total of 125 PGA golfers have qualified for and will play in The Barclays in 2014.
Players want to do well in The Barcalys so they keep advancing in the playoff system to earn more and more money and stay alive for the Tour Championship in mid-September. Only 30 players will qualify for the Tour Championship, so even though the prize money is the same as it is for The Barclays in 2014 ($8 million), the money only has to be split 30 ways and every player there will earn a nice paycheck.
The Barclays rotates annually among golf courses in the New York City area. Vijay Singh holds the record for the most wins in The Barclays with four. Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros, Ernie Els, and Sergio Garcia are tied for second with two wins each,
Sergio Garcia has won some nice tournaments in his career, but has yet to win a major. He certainly dates like a champion though, as he has dated some amazingly hot women.
Tiger Woods has never won The Barclays (he finished tied for second last year), and that streak will stay intact as Tiger did not qualify this year and he is taking time off from golf for the next few months. Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy have never won The Barclays either, but both players will be trying for their first win here this week.
