JERSEY CITY, New Jersey -- Masters champion Adam Scott won The Barclays after everyone around him did their best to lose it.

Scott played bogey-free at Liberty National, making only two birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 66 that put him in the mix of a crowded leaderboard at the top. Turns out he was the only one who stayed there.

"I can't believe it, to be honest," Scott said after winning the FedEx Cup playoffs opener. "I just played a good round today and I came in and really didn't think it had a chance. But obviously, things went my way a lot out there."

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 -- Rory McIlroy knew the rules going into last year's FedEx Cup playoffs, which didn't make it any easier to digest.

He won the Deutsche Bank Championship after a duel with Louis Oosthuizen. The next week at Crooked Stick, he blew away a powerful leaderboard that featured Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood, Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott to win the BMW Championship. He closed out his great run with a tie for 10th at the Tour Championship.

All that got him was second place in the FedEx Cup (along with a $3 million bonus).

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.
