PARAMUS, N.J. -- About the only thing that went wrong for Hunter Mahan at The Barclays was when the trophy broke. All he had to show for perhaps the biggest win of his career was a large wreath of roses.
"Am I supposed to put this on, Kentucky Derby style?" he said.
That would have been fitting. The closing stretch was exactly what he needed Sunday.
Mahan pulled away with three straight birdies, sealing the victory with a 20-foot putt down the slope on the par-5 17th. That allowed him a bogey from the trees on the final hole for a 6-under 65 with ping g30 driver for sale and a two-shot victory in the opening FedEx Cup playoff event.
He already has two World Golf Championships. Considering the timing, The Barclays felt bigger.
Mahan had gone 48 tournaments and nearly 30 months since his last victory. The only player to never miss a FedEx Cup playoff event, he wanted to keep alive his streak of reaching the Tour Championship every year since this series began in 2007. And he wanted to state his case for a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup team.
This performance will be hard for U.S. captain Tom Watson to ignore.
"To get a win in an event like this, and the timing that it was, it feels unbelievable," Mahan said.
"This game is all about winning," he said. "You can have a great year and if you don't win, it just feels like you missed out on something. So to get a win with ping g25 driver, and do it in a tournament like this in this kind of fashion with a 65 on Sunday, feels great."
On a day when six players had at least a share of the lead, Mahan found a way to make it look like a comfortable win at Ridgewood.
