  ATLANTA - Brandt Snedeker had one of his best rounds of the year, a 6-under 64 Saturday that gave him a share of the lead at the Tour Championship. It could turn out to be a round worth $10 million. Snedeker, in control of his game despite increasing wind at tree-lined East Lake, made a collection of tough putts and used his short game to pick up a couple of other birdies to wind up atop the leaderboard with Justin Rose, who also played bogey-free for a 68. Sunday at East Lake is the final day of the FedEx Cup, and it has never been more up for grabs among so many top players.

NEW YORK - Brandt Snedeker had nothing more than big hopes and another strong finish when he left the TPC Boston, expecting to wait deep into the night for a phone call from Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III that would determine if he was on the U.S. team. "I had no clue one way or another," Snedeker said Tuesday. "Got on the plane, got here to Indianapolis, and got a voice mail from Davis just asking if I brought my putter from Boston and if I wanted to be on the team. I was just so excited.

Brandt Snedeker didn't know how golf could get any better than an opening-round 61 until he walked up the 18th fairway to a standing ovation yesterday after expanding his lead and the size of his gallery at the Buick Invitational. "I thought, 'This is what it feels like to be Tiger Woods,' " he said. The only thing sweeter would be to beat him. Snedeker overcame some sloppy tee shots with brilliant iron play for a 2-under 70 on the menacing South Course at Torrey Pines in San Diego, giving the 26-year-old rookie a three-shot lead over Charles Howell III going into the weekend.

BRANDT SNEDEKER played the biggest round of his career for the biggest payoff in golf. Needing to win the Tour Championship on Sunday to beat out Rory McIlroy for the FedEx Cup, Snedeker came up with three big birdies on the back nine at East Lake in Atlanta to take all the drama out of the final day that had been loaded with possibilities. Snedeker hit his final tee shot into the grandstand left of the 18th green and made bogey. By then, it didn't matter. So dominant was his performance that he was the only player from the last five groups who managed to break par, closing with a 2-under 68. Along the way, he answered any questions about why Davis Love III made him a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup next week at Medinah.

Dayton Rose said that yesterday's rounds might have been his best ever. Brandt Snedeker said that he'd had one of his most enjoyable days on the course. When they meet today, expect serious competition. With victories in yesterday's quarterfinals and semifinals, Rose and Snedeker advanced to today's 36-hole final in the U.S. Amateur Public Links on Blue Heron Pines Golf Club's East Course. Snedeker, 22, from Nashville, defeated Brady Stockton, 1 up, in the morning's quarterfinals before taking out Luke List, 2 and 1, in the afternoon's semifinals.

Brandt Snedeker caught himself thinking about a different kind of green a few times yesterday morning as he walked along the fairways at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. Every time Snedeker pictured himself competing at the Masters, the famed Augusta, Ga., tournament of green jackets to which the Amateur Public Links winner is traditionally invited, Snedeker refocused. With an outstanding day of golf at the Blue Heron Pines Golf Club's East Course, Snedeker defeated Dayton Rose, 10 and 9, needing just 27 holes in the intended 36-hole championship.

Brandt Snedeker knocked the defending champion out of the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship yesterday, then had enough left in his tank to advance to today's quarterfinals. Snedeker, 22, this season's Southeastern Conference player of the year at Vanderbilt, eliminated Ryan Moore, the 2002 winner, 4 and 3, in the second round. He then defeated Brendan Steele, 3 and 2, to make it to the round of eight. The victory over Moore, 20, a junior at UNLV, couldn't be considered an upset, but the way it was achieved was rather surprising.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Sean O'Hair knows a good thing when it finds him. So when 1992 Masters champion Fred Couples asked him a couple of weeks ago whether he'd like to play a practice round this week with him and Tiger Woods . . . "I was all over it," the West Chester resident said. "I knew it would be a good time. " You think? The threesome teed off first on Tuesday morning, at 7:50. The galleries were what you'd expect, at least for the front nine. Then Woods decided to call it a round.

To say that the 2008 Masters is Trevor Immelman's to lose would be unfair. Granted, the 28-year-old South African with the Ben Hogan swing has played like a dream for three days. Added to his back-to-back 68s in the first two rounds, yesterday's 3-under-par 69 enabled Immelman to reach 11 under par and extend his lead over Brandt Snedeker to 2 shots going into today's final round at Augusta National. A victory would not only be Immelman's first title in a major, it would make for the first wire-to-wire win in the Masters since Raymond Floyd accomplished that in 1976.

GULLANE, Scotland - A blue sky and a gentle breeze usually means ripe scoring conditions at the British Open. Just not on the brown links of Muirfield. Zach Johnson handled it better than anyone yesterday. Helped along by a 45-foot eagle putt and only one bogey despite trouble lurking around every pot bunker, Johnson had a 5-under 66 for a one-shot lead, the first time he's been atop the leaderboard at any major since he rallied to win the Masters 6 years ago. Tiger Woods more than survived the late end of the draw, after the sun had thoroughly baked out the crispy greens and allowed only eight of the 20 rounds under par. He knocked one putt clear off the green, but 10 one-putts - most of them for pars - carried him to a 69, a good start in his bid to end his 5-year drought in the majors.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - There were no tears this time for Brandt Snedeker, who cried when he blew his shot at winning the Masters in 2008. But the lost opportunity Sunday still hurt. Snedeker, who shared the lead going into the final round, did not perform well in the rainy conditions at Augusta National Golf Club. He fired a 3-over-par 75 to drop into a tie for sixth at 284, 5 strokes out of the playoff won by Adam Scott over Angel Cabrera. "Just frustrated and disappointed," the 32-year-old Nashville native said.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The subplots were popping up fast and furious Saturday in the third round of the Masters. The world watched to see how Tiger Woods handled his emotions on the course after receiving a 2-stroke penalty several hours before his tee time. A trio of Australian players jockeyed for position striving to become the first from that country to slip on a green jacket. Fred Couples, at 53, tried to ride the constant shouts of "Fred-die!" to the top of the leader board. Meanwhile, Brandt Snedeker, with a mane of blond hair squirting in all directions from under his visor, kept at it over the Augusta National Golf Club waiting for birdie chances and succeeded on three down the stretch to finish the day tied with Angel Cabrera for the 54-hole lead.

MEDINAH, Ill. - Rory McIlroy has gone from being a rookie in the Ryder Cup to a marked man at Medinah. McIlroy is the first European in nearly 20 years to go into the Ryder Cup as the No. 1 player in the world, although the star power of this 23-year-old from Northern Ireland is defined by much more than a computer ranking. He already has won two majors, with a record score in the U.S. Open last year at Congressional and a record margin at the PGA Championship last month at Kiawah Island.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England - Amid plenty of wayward swings, Brandt Snedeker and Adam Scott were steady as can be at the British Open. And look who's lurking right behind them: a fist-pumping Tiger Woods. Snedeker, a 31-year-old Tennessean who had never made the cut in golf's oldest major, surged to the lead with another bogey-free round Friday, shooting a 6-under 64 that left him tied with Nick Faldo for the lowest 36-hole score in Open history. Faldo posted a 130 total at Muirfield in 1992 - the lowest halfway score in any major, for that matter - on the way to the last of his three Open titles.
