FedEx Cup 2012 Standings: Ryan Moore Finishes In Eleventh After Solid Tour Championship Showing

Tacoma-native Ryan Moore concluded the 2012 PGA Tour season on a high note Sunday, with his third-place finish at the Tour Championship propelling him up 17 spots to 11th place in the final FedEx Cup Standings.

Moore completed the tournament at 6-under, four behind FedEx Cup champion Brandt Snedeker. Moore had a legitimate chance at winning the tournament with a round of 3-under heading into the final three holes Sunday. Instead, he proceeded to bogey three straight to finish tied with Luke Donald after producing an even round.

Moore may not have won any PGA Tour events, but he did finis in the top 10 in seven of the 23 events he participated in. He's currently ranked 63 in the Official World Golf Ranking after earning $2,048,944 in prize money this season.

Snedeker, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Nick Watney and Phil Mickelson round of the top-five FedEx Cup finishers in that order.

The Tour Championship 2012: Brandt Snedeker Takes Home FedEx Cup Honors With Tournament Victory

Brandt Snedeker earned himself some considerable hardware Sunday, winning both the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup with a final round of two-under.

Snedeker drained three birdies on the back nine to cap of the biggest day of his eight-year career. He was the only player from the last five groups to register a score under par and finished 10-under overall.

Snedeker began the tournament sitting at fifth in the FedEx Cup standings but finishes it $11.4 million richer ($10 million from FedEx Cup and $1.4 million from Tour championship).

Justin Rose finished three strokes behind for second. Luke Donald and Tacoma-native Ryan Moore rounded out the top four tied for third. Moore had his chances Sunday but ended on a miserable streak of three-straight bogeys to close it out.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlory entered tournament as contenders with the chance to take home the FedEx Cup if they could exit the tournament victorious. Instead they finished in eighth and tenth respectively with overall scores of -2 and -1.
