Last Year: Chris Kirk claimed his third victory on the PGA Tour, and first in the playoffs, when he closed with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 66 to win by two strokes over Geoff Ogilvy of Australia, Russell Henley and Billy Horschel. Kirk, who opened with a 73 before stringing together scores of 66-64-66, took the lead with three birdies on the front nine and added two more on the 13th and 16th holes. Ogilvy finished with his second straight 65, while Henley, who took the lead by shooting 66-65 in the middle rounds, could manage only a 70. Horschel had a chance to tie Kirk with a birdie on the 72nd hole, but he hit his approach into a hazard and made a bogey 6 to wind up at 69. However, he won the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship the next two weeks to take home the FedEx Cup.
