Brandt Snedeker Takes the FedEx Cup Championship

Brandt Snedeker Takes the FedEx Cup Championship

This year’s FedEx Cup ended with Brandt Snedeker taking home the $10 million bonus aside from another $1.44 million prize. More than the monetary benefits, any tour championship proves the golfer of his position in the sport.

Snedeker won with a three-stroke victory which was really impressive. He has proven his ability to close a prominent tournament. “I think it solidifies what I already know: when I play my best golf, my best golf is some of the best in the world. I made sure that I kept telling myself that all day. I am one of the best players in the world. This is supposed to happen,” says the 31-year-old champion.

Having four victories in his entire career history, it is his first to come out with a 54-hole lead. Snedeker’s competitor, Ryan Moore said, “He’s been tough all week. He wanted it. You could just see it. I played with him Friday. I mean, you could just see it. He just had it in him.”

US Captain Davis Love also gave Snedeker approval for this tournament and emphasized that the first two FedEx Cups where Snedeker played hot were the key factors. The flammable putting and killer shots erased many doubts about him. The win also leads Snedeker to his first Ryder Cup.

“I’m sure 90 percent of you all probably didn’t pick me to win today, because I’ve never done it before, and I don’t blame you. But today was my day to go out and prove a bunch of people wrong — that I can play with the lead, I can handle the pressure. I’ve done it my whole career in junior and high school golf and college golf. Even on the Nationwide Tour, I’ve played with the lead and won. I knew I could do it. It was just a matter of doing it when the pressure was on, and I did it today,” says the new FedEx Cup Champion.
