JERSEY CITY – As the 2013 PGA Tour Season winds down, players continue to look to secure positions in the top 125 on the FedExCup points list and earn a trip to the first event of the FedExCup Playoffs, The Barclays, scheduled for Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City, on Aug. 19-25, the tournament’s first return to Liberty National since 2009.

The final two opportunities for players to earn FedExCup points prior to the FedExCup Playoffs are this week’s PGA Championship and the last event of the PGA TOUR Season in Greensboro, N.C., the Wyndham Championship.

The Barclays is the first of four events in the FedExCup Playoffs, culminating with the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola in Atlanta, Ga., where the 2013 FedExCup champion will be determined.

“The Barclays is thrilled to welcome fans back to Liberty National Golf Course, and to once again host some of the most talented golfers from around the world,” said Peter Mele, executive director of The Barclays. “We’re excited to see how the field shapes up over the next two weeks, and know it will be a dramatic week of golf in Jersey City.”

Amongst the players still fighting to make it to The Barclays are notables such as Padraig Harrington, Martin Kaymer, Louis Oosthuizen and Vijay Singh. All currently are ranked between No. 120-150 on the FedExCup points list. A strong performance in the next two weeks could move any of those names into position for a spot at The Barclays.

Tickets to The Barclays are available via www.TheBarclaysGolf.com and at the Paramus PGA TOUR Superstore.

Each year, fans 18 and younger are admitted free of charge to The Barclays when accompanied by a ticketed adult, and up to three 18 and younger fans can attend with a ticketed adult.
