He could win $10,000,000 if he can win it tomorrow. Even if he comes up short he has momentum going into the Ryder Cup. Davis Love III looks pretty smart now picking Brandt. :)

Rory will be making a charge for sure.

I was very pumped to watch Brandt yesterday just keep plugging away with birdies. The main thing I am worried about is that he has never won a tournament from the final group on Sunday. He always has come from behind to do it, and the few times he has been in the lead, he has fallen (though he stays in the top 3).

I wish him the best of luck today. If he wins, he just about doubles his career earnings.

Great win for Brandt! He apparently played strong all day, and he won the Fedex cup. He just hit the big time today (next stop...the Ryder Cup)

Big win for Snedeker - but only thing that bugs me is that McIlroy wins 2 playoff events and somehow gets squeezed by this one.

I guess Finchem wanted it that way to have the last tourney be for all the marbles.

The points do get reset for the final tournament so that it is mathematically possible for the 31th player to win it all (I think every player would have to finish in reverse order for that to happen). Snedeker did finish #2, #6, and #37 in the three other playoff tournaments to be #5 going in.

Now that he has won this, will he now be considered the best player to have not won a major yet? The good news is that he has a #3 finish at both the Masters and British Open, a #8 finish at the US Open, and a #18 finish at the PGA Championship. He is certainly capable of winning a major in the next couple of years.

Yes, he even said that this morning on his interview with 104.5.
