> During his victory at this week’s TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP by Coca-Cola, Brandt Snedeker recorded just two holes over par in the last 36 holes of play. It’s the 11th time in Snedeker’s PGA TOUR career he has played the weekend this well. But it’s the second time in this year’s FedExCup playoffs. During the Deutsche Bank Championship three weeks ago, Snedeker also recorded just two holes over par en route to a sixth-place finish.
> Hunter Mahan posted a strong finish to his PGA TOUR season, carding a 4-under 66 in Sunday's final round at East Lake. For Mahan, it was the 13th round of 4-under par or better on the PGA TOUR this season, but only his second since the start of July.
> Lee Westwood averaged 33 putts per round this week. For Westood, playing in his 161st event on the PGA TOUR, this week's putts per round average marks his highest average for this category in a 72-hole TOUR event. Westwood's previous worst was a 32.50 average during the 2007 Wachovia Championship.
