Snedeker becomes 88th player to gain World Top Ten status
September 24, 2012

American Brandt Snedeker heads into his Ryder Cup debut as the Tour Champion and FedEx Cup winner after denying Rory McIlroy in Atlanta. Snedeker took that and the tournament first prize by three strokes from England's Justin Rose - the perfect confidence-booster before he moves on to Chicago to face Europe. McIlroy had won the two previous play-off events and so took a points lead into the showdown, but the system was such that fifth-placed Snedeker knew if he won at East Lake he grabbed golf's biggest jackpot.

A further bonus for Brandt is that he becomes 88th player to achieve Top-10 status in the history of the Official World Golf Ranking as he jumps 8 places to World Number 10.
