2012 FedEx Cup Standings: Tiger Woods Finishes In Third Behind Champion Brandt Snedeker

Tiger Woods could not pull off a comeback victory at the Tour Championship Sunday, finishing tied for eighth in the tournament and third overall in the final FedEx Cup standings.

Woods had a shot at his third FedEx Cup if he could just pull off the victory this past weekend, but he blew his chance pretty quickly Sunday, playing four-over on his first six holes. With a two-over final round, Woods finished nine strokes shy of what was necessary for the $10 million FedEx Cup pot.

Woods concludes 2012 winning three times in 19 starts with seven top five finishes along the way.

Rory McIlory was the only player to finish between Snedeker and Woods. Nick Watney and Phil Mickelson rounded out the top five.

Fellow California natives Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan finished 28th and 19th place, respectively, in the final FedEx Cup standings.

The Tour Championship 2012: Brandt Snedeker Continues Brilliant 2012 With Tournament Victory, FedEx Cup Title

Brandt Snedeker looked confident and steady throughout his final round at the Tour Championship Sunday, taking home the tournament title along with FedEx Cup honors with a score of two-under.

Snedeker sunk three birdies on the back nine before dropping a bogey on his final hole but by then, the biggest victory of his eight-year career has already been secured. Snedeker's overall score of 10-under also earned him the $10 million dollar pot that comes with the FedEx Cup championship.

Snedeker began the tournament in fifth place in the FedEx Cup standings but contenders like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy weren't able to seal the deal. Woods registered a +2 round thanks to four bogeys and a double bogey Sunday. Woods finished the tournament tied for eighth after a promising showing on Thursday's first round.

McIlroy appeared to be in the driver's seat for the FedEx Cup before turning in a miserable +4 round on Sunday.

The Tour Championship 2012: Jim Furyk Jumps Out To Leads, Tiger Woods Working Way Up

With most golfers a little through the halfway mark of Friday's 2012 Tour Championship round, Jim Furyk surged up the leaderboard to take sole possession of first place sitting at 8-under. He has seven birdies through his first eleven holes with nothing worse than par on everything else.

Furyk leads fellow American Matt Kuchar by two strokes. Robert Garrigus, Zach Johnson and Tigers Woods round out the top five with all three at 4-under on the day.

Woods has an even score on the day after balancing his first hole bogey out with a birdie on the par-4 third. He still has more than enough time to make up some ground though as he's only through his first six holes on the day.

Rory McIlroy, most people's FedEx Cup favorite, is currently 2-under overall with his 1-under round Friday. McIlroy still has five holes to play.
