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.
