View Full Version : BMW Golf Championship (plus good Snedeker article)

09-15-2011, 11:55 AM
Today starts the third round of the FedEx Cup tournament, the BMW Championship. The top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings after this tourney get to play in the Tour Champiosnhip and a chance to win $10 million.

ESPN has a nice article about Nashvillian Brandt Snedeker as the tourney begins: http://espn.go.com/golf/notebook/_/page/birdiesandbogeys110914/long-memory-serves-brandt-snedeker-well

He is fifth in the FedEx Cup standings, and if he can remain in the top five heading to next week's Tour Championship, he controls his own destiny at East Lake, where a victory then would assure him of the $10 million bonus.

Also at stake this week is a spot on the U.S. Presidents Cup team. Snedeker is 11th in the standings and only the top 10 are automatic. Making matters more tenuous is the fact that captain Fred Couples (http://sports.espn.go.com/golf/players/profile?playerId=91) has already guaranteed one of the two at-large selections to Tiger Woods (http://sports.espn.go.com/golf/players/profile?playerId=462), who has not played since the PGA Championship and who at 29th in the standings is nowhere close to qualifying on his own.

Justin Rose is the leader by 2 strokes at 8 under. Snedeker is right in the middle at even (tie for 27th). I am glad he birdied the last two holes.

After two rounds, Mark Wilson and Justin Rose are tied for first at 11 under. Snedeker had a very good day, shooting 5 under and moving up to a tie for 7th.
