JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Masters champion Adam Scott won The Barclays on Sunday after everyone around him did their best to lose it.

Scott played bogey-free and closed with a 5-under 66. He finished an hour before the final group, and watched from the locker room at Liberty National.

Kevin Chappell had a two-shot lead through 10 holes and went 7 over the rest of the way. Justin Rose three-putted the 18th. Tiger Woods dropped to his knees after a back spasm on the 13th hole when he hooked his approach into the water, leading to a bogey. Woods birdied the 16th and 17th to get within one, and his 25-foot birdie off the 18th green stopped just short.

Gary Woodland had three straight birdie attempts inside 10 feet and missed them all.
