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.
