Singh and Garcia consolidate as Clarke approaches top 50

Vijay Singh overcame Sergio Garcia and Kevin Sutherland in a play-off to win The Barclays, the first FedEx Cup Play-Off tournament of the year at Ridgewood Country Club. Both Singh and Garcia birdied the 71st hole to force the three-way play-off with Sutherland as all three finished on eight-under-par 276. Garcia and Singh both spectacularly birdied the first extra hole eliminating Sutherland then Singh won with a birdie at the second extra hole. Singh and Garcia remain World Numbers 5 and 4 respectively while Sutherland jumps 43 places to World Number 57.

Darren Clarke shot a second 66 on the weekend to secure a four stroke victory over Paul McGinley at The KLM Open, with Henrik Stenson taking third place at Kennemer Golf and Country Club. This was Clarke's second win of the 2008 European Tour season after the Ulsterman won the BMW Asian Open in April and he moves to World Number 56, an improvement of 34 positions.

This week's other winners were Scott Piercy at the Northeast Pennsylvania Classic on the Nationwide Tour, Rick Kulacz at the Brunei Open on the Asian Tour, Seve Benson at the Ypsilon Golf Challenge on the European Challenge Tour and Alex Coe at the Jane Rogers Championship of Mississauga on the Canadian Tour.
