PARAMUS, New Jersey (Reuters) - Tiger Woods finished strongly at the Barclays tournament Sunday, a four-under 67 clinching a spot in the second FedExCup series event next week.

The world number one, yet to win this season, had to be in the top 50 to remain in the lucrative playoffs and qualified with ease as he closed with a seven-under 277 total.

"I'm very pleased," said Woods who felt his ball-striking was good all week.

"If I had just putted well for all four days, I'm right there. I drove it pretty much on a string all week and really controlled my irons," he told reporters.

"Unfortunately I didn't putt well in the middle two rounds."

Competing after his divorce from wife Elin became final on Monday, Woods tried to focus on swing adjustments.

He was satisfied for the most part and said he hoped to put it all together as he progressed through the FedExCup, which he won last year to pocket the $10 million bonus as overall points leader.

After starting out in 112th place, with 100 players qualifying for next week's Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston, the American's display at Ridgewood Country Club put him back on track for the series.

"I'm looking forward to it. The next three events, the next three venues I've won on," he said looking ahead to the TPC Boston, Cog Hill outside Chicago for the BMW Championship and East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta for the Tour Championship.
