Rory McIlroy has chosen not to tee it up at next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The 2012 PGA TOUR Player of the Year won four times on the circuit this year -- Honda Classic; PGA Championship; Deustche Bank Championship; BMW Championship. He won the money title as well before turning the same trick in the European Tour's Race to Dubai, closing out that season with a title at the DP World Tour Championship. The 23-year-old finished the year ranked atop the Official World Golf Ranking. He'll open his 2013 season at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on Jan. 17-20.

The great Seve Ballesteros is the only man to have successfully defended the Omega European Masters (1977-1978) but 2015 winner Danny Willett will aim to emulate the iconic Spaniard this week.

With bookend 65s and a second-round 62, Willett took the trophy last year and that added to previous efforts of T5 (2014) and T2 (2012) on the picturesque Crans-sur Sierre course set high in the Swiss Alps. Only outside the top 26 once in seven starts at the par 70, the Englishman loves the course but is struggling for recent form after suffering a dip since his brilliant win at Augusta National. Willett did post a top three in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth at the end of May but since then he hasn't bested T37 in six starts. He'll hope his close-up view of watching compatriot Justin Rose win Olympic gold will inspire him to further heights at Crans this week while his upcoming Ryder Cup debut is further incentive to sharpen his game.

Past champ Adam Scott patched together an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The Barclays to post 7-under 277, down one spot into a three-way T4, two in arrears to champion Patrick Reed.

The 36-year-old began the finale in solo third on 7-under, two back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he bobbled to back-to-back bogey-5s to open, the latter a 3-putt from 47'3", but rebounded with birdies on Nos. 4, 7 and 9 to turn 1-under. After the break, he 3-jacked the 11th for bogey from 54'9" and 3-jacked the 13th from 31'7" for bogey-6, before completing his scoring with a 31-incher for birdie-3 at 15. The Aussie had a 3'6" birdie try on the last to share second, but whiffed. He was No. 1 for the week in SG: Approach-the-Green (8.976) and SG: Tee-to-Green (14.706), but 76th (of 79) in SG: Putting at -4.814, including -3.844 in R4. Scott records his sixth top 10 of the season (17 starts), five of which are top 5s.

Overnight leader Rickie Fowler stalled out to a 3-over-par 35-39=74 in today's final round of The Barclays for a four-day total of 6-under 278, down six places into a three-way T7, three back of champion Patrick Reed.

The 27-year-old was chasing his fourth TOUR title in his 173rd career start (168 pro), first since the 2015 Deutsche Bank. This was his fourth career 54-hole lead/co-lead and he drops to 0-for-4. Fowler began the final frame with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Reed after opening in 67 and bogey-free laps of 69-68. He mustered six (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting -1.549 SG: Approach-the-Green and -1.032 SG: Around-the-Green. He went out in blemish-free 1-under, circling a 15-footer at the par-5 fifth, but the wheels came off from there, squaring bogeys on 11, 15 and 18, and double bogey-6 at 16 (all failed sand saves). Fowler played his final four holes in 3-over, sandwiching in a second birdie at the par-3 17th (22'4"). He settles for his eighth top 10 of the season in 21 starts.

PGA TOUR rookie Emiliano Grillo conjured up a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of The Barclays to join Sean O'Hair on joint second at 8-under 276, one shy of champion Patrick Reed.

The 23-year-old began the finale in a two-way T4 on 6-under, three back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler, after opening his Playoffs debut in 67-69-71. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he went out in blemish-free 3-under, circling Nos. 4, 5 (38'5") and 7. He dropped shots at 11 and 14, the former a 3-putt from 33'3", before walking-off with a '3' from 8'2" at the par-4 finisher. The Argentine landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.727 putts per GIR and 1.734 in SG: Putting. He saved par twice from between nine and 18 feet en route to just his second top 10 of the season in 22 starts (though eighth top 25), first since his playoff win at the regular-season-opening Frys.com Open. Grillo jumps 26 places to sixth in the FedExCup standings.

With a 1-under-par 34-36=70, Patrick Reed erased a one-stroke deficit in the final round to win The Barclays on 9-under 275, one clear of runners-up Sean O'Hair and Emiliano Grillo, good for his fifth TOUR title in his 121st career start.

Reed ascends six spots to No. 1 in the FedExCup standings after notching his first win since the 2015 Hyundai TOC, which he came from two back with a closing 6-under 67, eventually winning in a playoff. In his other three titles, he either led or co-led after 54 holes. This week, the 26-year-old was the 18-hole co-leader, and led by two at the midpoint before an even-par 71 in R3 left him solo second, one shy of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. In the finale, he mustered half (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 2.000 putts per GIR and -1.447 SG: Putting. The Texan bogeyed holes 3, 16 and 18, averting a trip-bogey finish with a clutch 7'4" par save on 17. In between, he circled Nos. 4, 5, 7 and 12, highlighted by a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 fifth. Reed's win comes in his 25th start of the season and is his 10th top 10, third top 5, joining runner-up finishes at the HTOC and the Valero Texas Open.

Defending champ Jason Day carved out a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of The Barclays to post 7-under 277, up one spot to T5 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Day finished in a three-way T4, two adrift of champion Patrick Reed and was the ONLY player to put four in the red this week.

The 28-year-old is the only player (thus far) with four sub-par rounds on the week at Bethpage Black. Third-round leader Rickie Fowler, still on the course, is the only one who can match him. The world No. 1 began the finale in a four-way T6, four shy of Fowler after rounds of 68-68-70. He struggled to six (of 14) fairways and is currently last (of 79 golfers) in that stat at 35.71 percent (20/56). The Aussie still hit 15 greens in regulation, circling four birdies against two bogeys for 1.800 putts per GIR and 1.433 SG: Putting. He's No. 1 in total birdies (19) and No. 1 in SGP (8.090). It's Day's 10th top 10 of the season in 17 starts, second straight (2nd, PGA), and third consecutive top-5 finish at The Barclays (fourth overall).

World No. 3 Jordan Spieth steadied a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of The Barclays to post 5-under 279, up six places to T10 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Spieth finished in a two-way T10, four swings back of champion Patrick Reed.

The reigning FedExCup champion was making his fourth appearance with a previous best of T19 on debut in 2013 (Liberty National GC). He began the finale on 3-under (T16) after opening in 71-67-72, one shy of the overnight top 10. The Texan squared a lone bogey on the par-3 third, a failed scramble on the ONLY green in regulation he missed. He bounced back with birdie-4 at four (5'10") and added a 17-footer for birdie at the par-4 sixth before walking-off with '3' at the par-4 last from 12'8". Elsewhere, Spieth missed four scoring chances from inside of 10 feet, contributing to a -1.655 in SG: Putting. He entered the week fifth in the FEC standings and that's where he stayed.

Sean O'Hair authored a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's final round of The Barclays to finish off his eighth visit on 8-under 276, up 13 places to T3 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, O'Hair finished in a two-way T2, one shy of champion Patrick Reed.

The 34-year-old's previous best at The Barclays was T25 on debut in 2007 (Westchester CC). He arrived this week 108th in the FedExCup standings -- with ONE top 10 in 23 starts (T10, SHO) -- and is projected to vault 72 spots to 36th. After laps of 69-69-72, the Texan began the finale on 3-under (T16), six back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. He squared bogey-5s at nine and 15, but outpaced them with seven birdies. O'Hair circled Nos. 1, 2, 7, 8, 11, 13 and 17, four from inside of 10 feet and setting the tone with a 26-footer at the par-4 first. He saved par at the last from 6'7" and made a 13-foot come-backer for a '4' on the par-4 10th. All told, it equated to 4.104 SG: Putting on Sun., buoying him to his fifth runner-up in 305 career events, first since P2 at the 2015 Valspar.

Johnson Wagner twirled a course-record-tying 7-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of The Barclays to reach 1-under 283, up 39 places on the live leaderboard to T33 and projecting to climb 16 spots to 76th in the FedExCup standings.

The fact that it took a 7-under effort in the finale to get Wagner back to red numbers for the week reflects how poor his first three rounds were. He opened his seventh appearance in 74-69-76 to begin the final frame on 6-over (T72). The Virginia Tech product, whose club affiliation is Hudson National GC (Croton, New York), circled eight birdies against a lone bogey, same as Sung Kang, who matched 64 three groups later. For the week, Wagner carded 16 birdies against 13 bogeys and a double. His and Kang's 64s matched the course record at Bethpage State Park's Black Course, shot by three players, most recently in R1 at the 2012 Barclays by Padraig Harrington.

Thomas Pieters closed out his week with three birdies to clinch the 2016 Made in Denmark tournament and complete a stunning round of 6-under-par 34-31=65; a victory that enhances his case for a Ryder Cup wild card selection.

The Belgian walked to the 16th tee at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort one shot behind the leader David Lipsky and duly produced a conclusion of pure quality. His tee shot at that 86-yard par-3 hole very nearly dropped for an ace; he reduced the 409-yard par-4 17th to a 54-yard approach which he left at tap-in range; and then smoked an 8-iron approach at 18 to 3'0" before draining the putt for a 72-hole total of 17-under 267, which earned him a one stroke victory over Bradley Dredge. Most impressive? Striping huge drives, being clutch under pressure, the raft of birdies, or his steely yet calm demeanour: take your pick. He made 7 birdies and 1 bogey on Sunday as he didn't so much nudge European team captain Darren Clarke as knock him over. "This one is quite cool, the way I finished," he said of his third career European Tour win.

Making his second international appearance since March, Ryo Ishikawa hoisted the trophy today at the Rizap KBC Augusta following rounds of 66-68-70-69 to reach 15-under 273 on the week and win by five strokes.

Ishikawa was last seen on the PGA TOUR missing the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, during the first week of February. He's been out with lumbar discopathy since then. The 24-year-old made his first rehab appearance in the form of a missed cut in July at the Japan PGA Championship Nissin Cupnoodle Cup. Nearly two months later he got the job done this week at Keya Golf Club, splitting just 21 (of 56) fairways, landed 43 greens (T34 in field), and ranking third in the field in putts per GIR. Ishikawa is also set to team up with Hideki Matsuyama to represent Japan at the World Cup of Golf at the end of November in Melbourne, Australia. Gamers should look for Ishikawa to return stateside in 2017 as he attempts to earn his status through a medical extension after going just 3-for-6 in 2015-16 before the lower back injury derailed his season.
