Canadian golfer Graham DeLaet had a strong finish at The Barclays Sunday in Jersey City, N.J.

The native of Weyburn, Sask., shot a final-round 65, one shot behind Masters champion Adam Scott of Australia, who won the FedExCup playoff event after shooting a five-under-par 66 for a total of 273.

DeLaet earned a four-way tie for second with Tiger Woods, U.S. Open champion Justin Rose and Gary Woodland.

"Maybe one putt shy of a playoff today, but played great," DeLaet tweeted. "Thanks to everyone for the support!"

DeLaet is expected to move up to No. 9 in the Presidents Cup standings and is in good shape to make the International team.

It was Scott's first victory since his rousing playoff win over Argentina's Angel Cabrera at Augusta, and a frustrating loss for his pursuers, particularly Woods.


Woods, who complained of a sore back this week after sleeping on a soft hotel bed, collapsed to his knees after striking his second shot on the par-five 13th hole and grabbed at his back.
