Snedeker, who stayed even-keel all day, finally celebrates after sinking the last putt

Brandt Snedeker entered the final round of the Tour Championship with a share of the 54-hole lead with Justin Rose. In Snedeker’s previous three PGA Tour victories, he overcame deficits of five strokes or more on Sunday to win. There’s always less pressure if you’re teeing off an hour before the leaders and posting a low score early than playing in the final group, where it’s yours to lose.

PLAYOFF FEVER

It’s nearly 8pm here on a Saturday night, so I’m not quite sure what I’m still doing in the media center. Oh, Ryder Cup preview stuff! You guys are all probably watching college football, anyway. To be honest, I haven’t paid much attention to the tournament (FedExCup) within a tournament (Tour Championship), but I certainly will tomorrow when they’re coming down the stretch. Hopefully it’s an exciting finish — which would be a fitting way to kick off the much-anticipated Ryder Cup.

Wait, that's not Bobby B on the bag...

After rolling in a downhill four-footer for par on the 18th, Dustin Johnson walked through the underpass, where his coach Butch Harmon was waiting for him.

“The back (nine) was a lot better,” Dustin, with a big grin on his face, said to Harmon. “Finally made some putts. The front (nine) sucked.”

DJ made the turn with a forgettable even par, but he found his stride coming in, rolling in three consecutive birdies on Nos. 13, 14 and 15. The longest putt he had in that stretch was 10 feet on the 14th. He knocked it inside four feet on the other two.

What changed?

The bromance continues

Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are paired in the first round of the Tour Championship, the fourth and final event in the quest for the $10 million jackpot. The new BFFs will teeing off shortly — and I’ll be walking with the circus, so follow my tweets for inside the ropes updates if you’d like — but I wanted to catch up on the news I’ve missed in the past few days due to travel delays and a killer migraine.

Rory: The Ultimate Driving Machine

The best part of the FedExCup playoffs is it keeps the world’s top players competing through September in some of golf’s deepest fields (and the worst part is calling the format “PLAYOFFS”). With a packed leaderboard on Sunday featuring names like Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott and the eventual champ Rory McIlroy, even the biggest diehard NFL fans might have turned the channel — if only temporarily — to tune into the action in the final round of the BMW Championship.
