Brandt Snedeker's Tour Championship win propelled him from fifth to first in the FedEx Cup standings, earning him $10 million for winning the season-long trophy.

Brandt Snedeker brought home two trophies Sunday: the one representing his win in the season-ending Tour Championship and the 2012 FedEx Cup, as the result of his final place atop the standings after a year of play.

The 31-year-old from Nashville entered the final event of the year in fifth place in the standings, which was exactly where he needed to be: the points system works such that any player in the top five would automatically take the season-ending trophy with a tournament win in the Tour Championship. Snedeker won going away with a 10-under, three strokes better than runner-up Justin Rose, earning Snedeker not only the $1.4 million prize from the tournament itself but also the $10 million for the winner of the FedEx Cup.

Behind Snedeker in the final standings were Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, who finished 10th and eighth in the Tour Championship. Nick Watney dropped to fourth after his 28th place finish, while Phil Mickelson rounded out the top five after finishing in 10th.
