Edison, NJ – There was little drama on Sunday as Jason Day blew away the field with a final round 62.  The 8 under round was good enough to run his total to 19 under par for  the weekend, and surge past the rest of the Barclays field his closest competitor Henrik Stenson finishing 6 strokes behind Day.

The drama was at the bottom the top 100 FedEx point leaders to see who would make next week’s Deutche Bank in Boston.

While Day is now the points leader, Spieth’s poor showing dropped him to second and Stenson vaulted 40 spots to #4, all of those golfers had their playoff spots assured heading into next week.

Johson Wagner entered the Barclays at #101, a spot outside the Deutche Bank.

Wagner bogeyed 18 but his even par finished was good enough for a tie for 45th that vaulted him to 92nd place and assured his place at next week’s second leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Jason Duffner entered the Barclays outside looking in, but his 3-under performance vaulted him 31 spots and now he is nearly is assured of making not only next week’s Deutche Bank, but in good position to get into the top 75 – necessary to get into the BMW.

The biggest drama of the weekend however revolved around spots 99 and 100 for next week’s event.

Camillo Villegas entered Sunday at 5 under par, in great position to make up the necessary ground to get into the top 100.

He would bogey holes 11,12, and 13 and all of a sudden, his playoffs were in doubt.

He came up with a birdie on 15 and finished 3 over on the day and 2 under for the Barclays after holing a 10-footer on 18 to save his par.  He ended up 99th in FedEx points, making the putt that got him into the field at next week’s Deutche Bank.

Jason Kokrak was cut after two round at the Barclays and had to figure his 2015 was over.

The man who could have taken advantage was Nick Taylor.

Taylor was solidly 1 over at the turn and figured to finish in the top 50.

He birdied 12 to get back to even for the day and 1 over for the tournament.

However, the Canadian bogeyed 13, and double-bogeyed 14 ending at +3 for the tournament and 1 FedEx point behind #100 Jason Kokrak who will go from cut at the Barclays to into  the Deutche Bank.
