After an exciting year of dramatic finishes, historic performances and budding rivalries, we've reached the final act of the 2014-2015 season as the PGA Tour heads to Edison, NJ for the start of the FedExCup Playoffs.

First up is The Barclays, where Plainfield Country Club will play host. The 7,091-yard, par-70 Donald Ross layout features thick rough (measuring 6-8 inches in some places) and certainly puts a premium on finding fairways.

And being in position off the tee is going to be critical for players as they look to finish inside the Top 100 in FedExCup Playoff points and advance to the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Team Titleist was inside the ropes earlier this week at Plainfield Country Club to capture the playoff excitement as the PGA Tour's best make their final push for season-long honors.

Check out the gallery above and enjoy some of our favorite shots from The Barclays. And good luck to #TeamTitleist this weekend!
