The TOUR Championship 2012: Brandt Snedeker Wins By 3 Shots

Brandt Snedeker put up a 2-under-par 68 performance on Sunday to win The TOUR Championship with a 10-under-par performance for the tournament.

Snedeker takes home $1.44 million for winning the tournament, and an additional $10 million for winning the FedEx Cup. This doubles his career earnings from $14.6 million to just over $26 million.

Justin Rose went into Sunday tied with Snedeker, but shot a 1-over-par 71 to finish the tournament alone in second place at 7-under. Tiger Woods came in tied for 8th, finishing at 2-under. World no. 1 Rory McIlroy finished at 1-under, but struggled on Sunday with a 4-over-par 74.

Snedeker will join the rest of the United States Ryder Cup team in Chicago on Thursday to take on the Europeans. The tournament will be played at Medinah Country Club.
