Tour Championship 2012: Brandt Snedeker Takes Home Title

Building off of a round of 64 on Sunday, Brandt Snedeker was able to hold off the field to capture the 2012 TOUR Championship and the 2012 FedEx Cup.

After being tied with Ryan Moore through eight holes, Snedeker then pushed through the pack to go ahead, where he would never look back. A chip-in for birdie on hole 17 clinched the title.

Both Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy had a chance to win the FedEx Cup with a win tonday, but neither were able to do so. Woods finished tied for eighth at two-under while McIlroy finished in 10th at one-under.

This was the fourth-career PGA Tour victory and his first time capturing the FedEx Cup.
