JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - One week after barely qualifying for golf's version of the playoffs, Heath Slocum has won the opening event at The Barclays with a 20-foot par putt on the final hole for a one-shot victory.

Slocum, who earlier in the round holed out for eagle from 159 yards, closed with a 4-under 67 and won at Liberty National when Steve Stricker caught the lip with his 10-foot par putt.

Tiger Woods was among those who finished one shot behind. Playing in the group ahead of Slocum and Stricker, he hit 6-iron to 7 feet for a birdie putt to tie for the lead. Typical of his week, Woods missed the putt.

Ernie Els and Padraig Harrington also finished one shot behind in a fascinating start to the FedEx Cup.

Slocum was No. 124 out of 125 qualifiers, and the victory puts him at No. 3 in the standings.
