Barclays Golf Tournament 2010 Round 4 Leaderboard Updates – Today the exciting Barclays Golf Tournament 2010 2010 will come to a close and the first elimination match for the FedEx Cup 2010 will also end. So far the standing looks all in favor for Martin Laird who is at 12 under 201. He performed well during Round 3 and starting the tournament with a pretty good poise.
Jason Day who took over the lead from Tiger Woods during Round 2 is still very much in contention. Day is tied with two other players, Dustin Johnson and Rory Sabbatini each at 9 under par. Sabbatini is doing a good performance for Round 4 with 7 under par.
Luke Donald, who is now having his final tee for Round 4 advances to second place with 10 under par and is also doing a good job today with a total of 7 under.
Dustin Johnson still hopes to perform well and perhaps steal the winning poise from Martin Laird, but this seems to be a difficult task. For Tiger Woods, he can do an amazing trick and still win but it will be a difficult one. The main target for Woods is to advance to the next round of the FedEx Cup and perform well at the Barclays Golf Tournament 2010.
Lots of things at stake today and we will see the exciting conclusion later in the day. Meanwhile here is Martin Laird who has a 54-hole lead for the first time in his career — in one of the biggest events of the season.
Barclays Golf Tournament 2010 Round 3 Leaderboard Update – There is a new leader at the Barclays Golf Tournament 201 after Round 3 ended today. This is clearly shown in the Barclays Round 3 leaderboard. Martin Laird started the Playoffs at No. 95 and was hopeful of reaching the second round. Now he is at the number 1 spot and surely this made his day.
“I didn’t think I’d come in here and move that much,” Laird said after his 6-under 65. “I caught a glimpse of the projected FedExCup and I got a little shock.”
Laird took the lead of Jason Day on Round 2 as Day slid to the number 2 spot with 9 under par 204 and tied with Dustin Johnson. The last round will be held Sunday and would determine who will take home the price for the Barclays Golf Tournament 2010 being held at Ridgewood Country Club.
If the 27-year old Martin Laird win the Barclays Golf Tournament 2010 it would move him to the No. 1 spot and assure him a spot in all four majors next year, and making him a serious contender for the $10 million FedExCup payoff.
Meanwhile, Tiger Woods slid down further to T28 after he made 1 over par 72 during the 3rd Round. Tiger Woods total score for Barclays Golf Tournament 2010 is at 3 under par 210. For the rest of the Barclays Golf Tournament 2010 Leaderbaord, you can see it from the website of PGA Tour here.
