2012 Tour Championship: Brant Snedeker Hanging On To Final Round Lead

Brant Snedeker is playing steady and right now, it looks like that is all he will need to secure The Tour Championship. Snedeker is even through eight holes in today's final round, keeping him at eight-under, which is two shots clear of second place Ryan Moore and Justin Rose.

None of Snedeker's chasers are under par for the day, making his even play enough for the moment. Moore is also even today, while Rose is two-over, fourth place Jim Furyk is even and fifth place Bubba Watson is one-over. Without anyone going low, Snekeder isn't being asked to do much.

East Lake Golf Club is causing havoc for the players in the final round and only four players are under par. Webb Simpson is two-under through 14 holes, but that only got him to three-under so it's a little too late for him. Orange, CA native Hunter Mahan is having a great day at four-under, but he is already through 16 holes and is only two-under for the tournament.

Tiger Woods is working on his second over-par round of the tournament. He shot a 73 on Friday and is three-over today after 11 holes. That has him back at one-under for the tournament, seven shots off the pace.
