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.
