Snedeker pockets 10 million

Updated: September 24, 2012

Brandt Snedeker held off Ryan Moore to win the season-ending Tour Championship by three shots, along with FedExCup honours and the cool $10 million bonus.

Snedeker, one of five players who came into this week knowing that victory would automatically secure him the playoff crown, signed off with a two-under-par 69 at East Lake Golf Club for a 10-under total of 270.

Englishman Rose, playing with Snedeker in the final pairing on a difficult day for scoring in breezy conditions, finished alone in second after closing with a 71.

World No 1 Rory McIlroy and second-ranked Tiger Woods, who like Snedeker had victory in their sights to complete the FedExCup ‘double’, both finished poorly.
