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!

TITLEIST BY THE NUMBERS

 Titleist is the top choice at The Barclays with 76 players in the field trusting a Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success. That's more than six times the nearest competitor with 12 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist also led the field in the hybrid (21) and iron (31) categories. Vokey Design wedges topped the approach, sand and lob wedge (107) category and Scotty Cameron putters were the top choice in the putter (47) category.
