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.
