American Brandt Snedeker won the US PGA Tour Championship and claimed a $10 million bonus for capturing the tour season playoff title after firing a two-under par 68 in Sunday’s final round.
Snedeker was among five players, including 14-time major winner Tiger Woods and World No. 1 Rory McIlroy, who led in playoff points and could have claimed the playoff crown and bonus money simply with a victory in the 30-man showdown.
Snedeker finished 72 holes on 10-under par 270 to defeat Britain’s Justin Rose by three strokes with Britain’s Luke Donald and American Ryan Moore sharing third on 274 and American Webb Simpson fifth on 275.
