PGA Golf Prize Money Up for Grabs at the 2016 The Barclays

The 2016 The Barclays FedEx Cup playoff PGA golf tournament is taking place this week from August 25-28, 2016, on the Bethpage Black Course at the public Bethpage State Park located in Farmingdale, New York on Long Island. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the PGA golfers to win at the 2016 The Barclays.

The Barclays is the first of the four FedEx Cup PGA golf playoff tournaments that will determine the winner of the 2016 FedEx Cup and the rich $10 million bonus prize money. The Barclays has been played on the PGA Tour since 1967 and been the first playoff tournament in the FedEx Cup since its inception in 2007.

Only the top 125 players in the FedEx Cup standings can play in the 2016 The Barclays this week. The Barclays has a 36-hole cut to the top 70 players plus ties. Only the top 100 players based upon FedEx Cup points will move on next week to play in the second playoff tournament at the Duetsche Bank Championship.

Since the FedEx Cup Playoffs were started in 2007, Vijay Singh (pictured above) is the only player to win The Barclays and go on to win the FedEx Cup and the rich $10 million bonus. Vijay won both The Barclays and the FedEx Cup in 2008.
