Steve Stricker bests top PGA Tour field to win FedEx Cup opener at The Barclays

Steve Stricker, who had the reputation on the PGA Tour as the guy who couldn't finish, shot a final round 69 at The Barclays to finish at 16-under-par (268) for the tournament. He pocketed a $1.26 million winner's check (that isn't deferred like the FedEx Cup grand prize) for his first PGA Tour win in six years.
