The Associated Press on Wednesday reports that Barclays and the PGA Tour are negotiating to bring the 2012 tournament to the Long Island public course that has hosted two U.S. Opens.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information, said such a deal would need approval by the New York state parks and recreation department and the tour’s policy board.
The Barclays, the opening playoff event for the FedEx Cup, has rotated around New York and northern New Jersey since the FedEx Cup began in 2007. It has gone from Westchester to Liberty National to Ridgewood Country Club, and is set for this year at Plainfield Country Club.
