Ogilvy Wins 2014 Barracuda Championship

Posted: Updated:
The 16th annual Barracuda Championship concluded today with Australian Geoff Ogilvy taking the top spot and $540,000 with a final score of 49 in the Modified Stableford format. Justin Hicks took second with John Huh and Jonathan Byrd tying for third.

Ogilvy collects 300 points and moves from No. 151 to well inside the top 100 in the FedExCup standings (No. 84 at the conclusion of the tournament, but dependent upon conclusion of World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational), guaranteeing a return to the FedExCup Playoffs.

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Ogilvy is also the first international player in the Barracuda Championship’s 16-year history to win the tournament.

“That’s hard to believe, isn’t it? I guess it’s not crazy,” said Ogilvy. “The majority of the PGA TOUR is made up by Americans, but the last 20 years there has been an influx of foreign-born players. So there wouldn’t be many tournaments I wouldn’t have thought would have that stat.”

The Barracuda Championship changed its format from a stroke play to a Modified Stableford in 2012, a format not utilized on the PGA Tour since The INTERNATIONAL ended after 2006. Points are based on the number of strokes taken at each hole, with the goal of achieving the highest overall number of points. Barracuda Championship includes a traditional 36-hole cut of low 70 and ties.
