ATLANTA (AP) — Brandt Snedeker doesn’t claim to be the best player in the world, the best player on the PGA Tour or even the best overall player in the FedEx Cup playoffs.

All he needed was the best round of his career at East Lake to become FedEx Cup champion, giving him the biggest paycheck in golf.

He proved to be the right man in the right place Sunday in the Tour Championship. Snedeker overcame an early double bogey in the water with four big birdies and closed with a 2-under 68, making him the only player in the final five groups to break par.

That gave him a three-shot win over Justin Rose and two trophies in one day — the Tour Championship and its $1.44 million prize, and the FedEx Cup with its $10 million.

Rory McIlroy, who had 11 consecutive rounds in the 60s going into Sunday at East Lake, closed with a 74 and tied for 10th.

Tiger Woods also faded early, missing the fairway with a 3-wood on the opening hole and making bogey, ended with a birdie from tapin range on the 18th for a 72 to tie for eighth.
