JERSEY CITY, New Jersey -- Kevin Stadler teed off just after breakfast and finished right before dinner. It took him nearly 11 hours to complete a 7-under 64 at Liberty National, his lowest score on the PGA Tour since the first week of February. And he still isn't guaranteed to be the first-round leader at The Barclays.

The FedEx Cup playoffs got off to a soggy start Thursday with two rain delays that lasted six hours.

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey -- This might be the best way to measure Tiger Woods' season. Sam Snead is getting more attention than Jack Nicklaus.

Woods said again at The Barclays this already has been a great season, and it's difficult to argue. His five wins -- including two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship -- are three more than anyone else on the PGA Tour. He is leading all the right indicators, such as the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, the money list ($2.6 million more than anyone else) and the No. 1 seed going into the FedEx Cup playoffs.

The standard for Woods, however, always has been the majors, and he was shut out for the fifth straight year.
