PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) - Hunter Mahan pulled away with three straight birdies to win The Barclays on Sunday, ending an 0-for-46 drought on the PGA Tour.

The victory could not have come at a better time.

Mahan now is assured of making the Tour Championship every year since the FedEx Cup began in 2007. He is the only player to never miss a playoff event. And by beating one of the strongest fields of the year, he made a strong impression on Tom Watson as a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup team.

Mahan closed with a 6-under 65.

He made a 10-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole to take the lead, hit his approach to 3 feet on the 16th and sealed the win with a 20-foot birdie on the 17th.
