Snedeker began his move with a birdie on No. 3 and then went on to parry runs from Justin Rose, who shot a 71, and Ryan Moore who tied for the lead with a birdie on 15 before making bogeys on the final three holes for a 70 and a third-place tie with Luke Donald. Snedeker picked up another birdie on No. 8, when he made a 27-footer to get him to 8-under par. McIlroy, who had won the Deutsche Bank Championship and the BMW Championship, praised Snedeker for his victory.


“I’m a little disappointed,” said McIlroy. “But at the same time, Brandt really deserves to win. If you look at his stats the whole way throughout the week, he played the best golf out of anyone. He knew what he needed to do. He needed to come in here and win. He controlled his own destiny just like I did, and he was able to come and do that. So because of that, he really deserves it.” ■


How Was It Won? Brandt Snedeker won the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola with an outstanding display of all- around golf. Here are some numbers: ■ He was first in Strokes Gained – Putting (1.660 per round). ■ He was second in Putts per Round (27.50). ■ He was second in Fairways Hit (37/56 or 66 percent). ■ He tied for seventh in Greens in Regulation (50/72 or 69 percent).

EAST LAKE GOLF CLUB


Here’s something for you trivia fans out there: What are the odds that both Bobby Jones


and Alexa Stirling would learn the game from East Lake’s Scottish-born professional, Stewart Maiden? Jones was one of the game’s greatest champions and certainly its greatest amateur. Sterling won the most important United States women’s championship of the time, the U.S. Women’s Amateur, in 1916, 1919 and 1920. Fittingly, East Lake was where Jones played his final round of golf before his body began to seriously deteriorate from syringomyelia, a disease that eventually took his life. East Lake hosted the TOUR Championship


by Coca-Cola for the first time in 1998, when Hal Sutton won, and today it is the tournament’s permanent home. One of the course’s appeals is that its home hole is a longish par 3, which is an oddity but often adds great excitement to the final round of the championship.
