Of the 125 players eligible to play in the event, five did not enter: Sergio García (ranked 20), Alex Čejka (59), Danny Willett (75), Shane Lowry (87), and Anirban Lahiri (117).[1][2] Of the 120 entrants, 79 made the second-round cut at 145 (+3). Despite there being more than 78 players making the cut there was no secondary cut after the third round as in regular PGA Tour events, following a change made after the 2014 season.[3]

Patrick Reed won by a stroke over Emiliano Grillo and Sean O'Hair and moved from seventh place to first place in the standings.[4] The top 100 players in the points standings advanced to the Deutsche Bank Championship. This included five players who were outside the top 100 prior to The Barclays: Sean O'Hair (ranked 108th to 15th), Kang Sung-hoon (122 to 88), John Huh (111 to 90), Tyrone van Aswegen (104to 93), and Derek Fathauer (118 to 99).
