Sleeper Picks: The Barclays
T.J. Auclair PGATOUR.com Interactive Producer Pick: Billy Andrade Andrade just snuck into the Playoffs and enters at No. 136 in FedExCup points. This hasn’t been Andrade’s best season by a long shot. However, he usually turns it on late in the season. If he’s going to get things rolling, there might not be a better place than The Barclays where he’s a past champion and finished third in 2006. In case there weren’t enough incentive to play well, here’s more — next week’s Deutsche Bank Championship is one of only two PGA TOUR events held in New England, and it’s by far the closest to Andrade’s home in Bristol, R.I. While 143 players will tee it up at The Barclays (it would have been 144 if Tiger Woods were playing), only the top 120 in the FedExCup standings will advance to the Deutsche Bank Championship. You can bet Andrade won’t want to be sitting out two weeks into the Playoffs with a tournament in his backyard.
