Hosting duties


CROMWELL, Conn. – As reported on in February, Tour officials announced Plainfield (N.J.) Country Club will join the rotation to host The Barclays starting in 2011. Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J., hosted the event last year and will be the site of the event in 2010.

Liberty National will host this year’s Barclays, the first of the Tour’s four FedEx Cup Playoff events, but it likely will not join remain in the rotation.

The Donald Ross-designed Plainfield hosted the 1987 U.S. Women’s Open, which was won by Laura Davies, and the 1978 U.S. Amateur which was won by John Cook.
