ATLANTA -- Brandt Snedeker joined Jim Furyk and Justin Rose at the top of the leaderboard when he posted a bogey-free 64 in the third round of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
Rose and Furyk have four holes remaining but when he walked off the 18th green, Snedeker was projected No. 1 in the FedExCup. Snedeker started the week ranked No. 5 -- one of the players who is assured of winning the $10 million bonus with a win in the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
Snedeker, who won his third PGA TOUR event earlier this year, was near-flawless on Saturday. He hit 10 of 14 fairways, all but one green in regulation and made six birdies on 29 putts. He ranks second in strokes gained putting this week.
