Snedeker Wins Tour Championship, FedEx Cup

Brandt Snedeker answered any questions about why Davis Love III made him a captain’s pick for the upcoming Ryder Cup, winning the PGA Tour Championship on Sunday by three strokes over Justin Rose at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

Snedeker needed to win the Tour Championship to beat out Rory McIlroy for the FedEx Cup and did just that, sinking three birdies on the back nine to pull away, pocketing the $1.44 million prize for first place and $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup.

Snedeker joins Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk and Bill Haas as winners of the FedEx Cup, which has been around for six years.
