The Tour Championship 2012: Brandt Snedeker, Justin Rose Lead After 3 Rounds Of Play

Brandt Snedeker shot a fantastic 6-under par for the third round of the Tour Championship, which vaulted him all the way to the top of the leaderboard.

Snedeker finished the third round at 8-under par for the tournament, which has him tied with Justin Rose for the lead entering the final round. Rose shot a 2-under par on Saturday.

Ryan Moore also moved up the leaderboard on Saturday, with his 5-under round leaving him at 6-under with one round to go. That score has Moore alone in third place after three rounds of play. Second-round leader Jim Furyk, Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson are all tied for fourth place, sitting a single stroke behind Moore entering the final round of play.

Tiger Woods shot 3-under for the third round, bouncing back from a Friday that saw him shoot a 73. Woods is tied with a trio of other golfers at 4-under entering Sunday's play. Phil Mickelson went the other way on Saturday, as his 2-over par round saw him drop into a tie for 20th place.

Sunday's final round will be an interesting one, as several golfers could potentially come out on top of the FedEx Cup standings. The projected standings can be found here.

Tour Championship Leaderboard: Jim Furyk Leads Midway Through Round 2

With Friday action fully underway, Jim Furyk has pulled into sole possession of the Tour Championship lead.

The West Chester, Pennsylvania native has made six birdies in his first nine holes, moving him to seven under par for the tournament.

He currently leads Matt Kuchar and Bo Van Pelt by two. Justin Rose and Tiger Woods, the Round 1 leaders, both trail by three strokes.

In his last four Tour Championship appearances, Woods has won one, and finished second three times.

With each putt made or missed, the FedExCup standings shift. But as things currently stand, Tiger Woods is in line to win the Cup and the $10 million prize.

2012 Tour Championship: Round 2 Update

Friday golf is underway at East Lake, where Nick Watney and John Huh were the first to hit the course.

Watney entered the tournament third in FedEx points, with a chance to take home the $10 million prize for the FedExCup winner. Given Watney's poor Thursday and continued struggles on Friday, this now seems out of reach. Watney is currently four over on Friday through five holes, which brings him to nine over par for the tournament.

John Huh is even through five holes, and tied for second-to-last place.

Louis Oosthuizen has parred his first two holes, remaining at even par for the tournament. Currently tied for 19th, the South African is just four strokes off the lead, currently held by Tiger Woods and Justin Rose.

West Chester, Pennsylvania native Jim Furyk is currently one under par, and set to tee off at 1:05.
