Day 1 of the 2012 Barclays tournament is coming to an end, and Padraig Harrington is your clubhouse leader.

Padraig Harrington is the clubhouse leader as the first round of the 2012 Barclays tournament from Bethpage Black Course in New York winds down. Harrington finished his day shooting a 7-under 64.

American golfers Nick Watney and Brian Harman are on Harrington's tail, each carding 6-under 65. Four players, including Sergio Garcia, are right behind them at 5-under. Jimmy Walker is also at 5-under, and is one of the few golfers still playing -- he's currently through 17 holes.

Notables Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are part of a group of 12 golfers that finished the day at 3-under par. Rory McIlroy, who is relishing the chance to kick Tiger's you-know-what at next month's Ryder Cup, is currently a shot back of Woods at 2-under.
