Slocum finished with a 4-under-par 67 and an overall score of 9-under 275.
The tournament was the first event of the FedEx Cup playoff. Slocum's win -- his third on the PGA tour -- jumped him from 24th to third behind Woods and Stricker on the cup points list and earned him $1.35 million.
"That's what is unbelievable about this system," Slocum said. "I was sweating it out last week, not knowing if I'd even be here ... I came in with the attitude that I've got nothing to lose and I'll let it hang out and play the best I can. I got off to a great start and it carried over all week."
Woods missed a 7-foot birdie putt at the final hole and Stricker failed on a 10-footer for par.
"I just misread that one," Woods said. "That's the way it goes."
