The Northern Trust, formerly The Barclays, is a golf tournament in the New York City area on the PGA Tour. Since 2007, it has been played as the first tournament of the playoff system for the FedEx Cup. The field is limited to the top 125 players on the FedEx points list for the regular season.

Many of the world's top players have won The Northern Trust including Sergio García, Adam Scott, Jason Day, Matt Kuchar, Patrick Reed, Dustin Johnson and 2018 champion Bryson DeChambeau, who captured a four-stroke victory and became the tournament's youngest winner in the FedEx Cup era. Since the tournament's inception in 1967, The Northern Trust has generated nearly $50 million for New York/New Jersey Metropolitan-area charities, including a record $1.865 million in 2018.[1]

The 2019 playing of The Northern Trust will be held August 6-11, 2019 at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey, for the third time in the tournament's history.[2] Liberty National Golf Club is known as a picturesque course, with views of the Hudson River, Manhattan skyline, and the Statue of Liberty. It fittingly opened on July 4, 2006 and is guided by the vision and leadership of former Reebok Founder/Chairman & CEO Paul Fireman and his son Dan. Liberty National Golf Club also hosted the 2017 Presidents Cup.

On July 10, 2018, the PGA Tour announced that The Northern Trust will rotate between the New York/New Jersey and Boston areas in 2019 and 2020. The Northern Trust 2020 will see the PGA Tour's return to New England and TPC Boston, which has hosted the Dell Technologies Championship since 2003, and will play as the opening event to the 2020 FedEx Cup Playoffs.[2]

History[edit]

The event began in 1967 as the Westchester Classic, played at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, New York, a suburb northeast of New York City in Westchester County. Beginning in 1976, it underwent a series of name sponsorships (detailed below), not unlike other PGA Tour stops. The name of the event evolved to the point that, by 1990, it no longer contained the name of its host course or location. However, among golfers on tour and many fans, it was still known by its traditional name, "The Westchester."

The tournament was usually played during June of each year, either the week before (in even-numbered years) or the week after (in odd-numbered years) the U.S. Open. It had its greatest attendance in 2001 when Tiger Woods participated, although two days of heavy rains disrupted play. It had one of its more exciting finishes in 2005, when Pádraig Harrington eagled the par-5 final hole with a 65-foot (20 m) putt to win the title. The most frequent winner of the tournament is Vijay Singh, with four trophies.

Beginning in 2008, it left the Westchester Country Club and began being rotated amongst different clubs in the New York metropolitan area (also detailed below).

In 2011, Hurricane Irene shortened the tournament to 54 holes, which was played that year at the Plainfield Country Club in Edison, New Jersey. The tournament ended by noontime on Saturday, August 27, allowing ample time for players and spectators to evacuate the golf course.

The tournament has traditionally closed CBS Sports' PGA Tour television schedule, due to the network's commitment to airing SEC College and NFL football, as well as (until 2014) the U.S. Open tennis tournament, during the fall months. Jim Nantz, who calls the final two rounds of The Northern Trust on television, is also the lead play-by-play announcer for the NFL on CBS.

In 2017, Chicago-based financial services company Northern Trust replaced Barclays, which had sponsored the tournament since 2005.[3] Northern Trust had previously been the title sponsor of the Los Angeles Open at Riviera for nine years, known as the "Northern Trust Open" from 2008 through 2016.

In 2019, the FedEx Cup Playoffs will feature three events, instead of four, and the Playoffs will conclude by the end of August. Therefore, The Northern Trust will be played earlier in August (August 5–11, 2019), followed by the BMW Championship, August 12-18 (70 players); and the Tour Championship August 19–25 (30 players).[4]

Highlights[edit]

  • 2015: Brian Harman becomes only the third player in PGA tour history to record two holes-in-one in the same round.[5]
