Stenson's lead is four as final 9 begins

ATLANTA -- The final group has headed to the back nine at East Lake Golf Club with Henrik Stenson owning a four-stroke lead at 12 under in the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.

Stenson wasn't able to take advantage of the first nine holes like he has in the first three rounds, though. He only made one birdie there Sunday -- as compared with 13 combined on that segment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Interestingly, Stenson hasn't prospered on the back nine at East Lake like he has on the front. He's 2 over on the back and bogeyed three of his last five holes on Saturday.

Jordan Spieth, who ranks sixth in final-round scoring average on TOUR, birdied three straight to close the front nine and has just made a 10-footer at the 13th hole to get to 8 under. Steve Stricker and Dustin Johnson are tied at 7 under.

Stenson and Stricker can win the FedExCup with a victory in the TOUR Championship.
