NORTON, Mass. -- Brandt Snedeker's FedExCup Playoffs came to an end Saturday at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Now he'll have to wait to see if his chances of being picked for the Ryder Cup team did, too. Missing the cut at TPC Boston certainly didn't help.

Snedeker shot 76 in the second round to end his week at 6 over. It is the earliest the 2012 FedExCup champ has been eliminated from the Playoffs since they began in 2007.

"I didn't do anything the last week or two weeks to justify or to solidify a spot on the team," said Snedeker, who also missed the cut last week.

Other players Tom Watson is eying might have.

Hunter Mahan won last week's Barclays, and Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson are both in contention at TPC Boston.

Still, Snedeker is close to Tom Watson and played a practice round with him at the PGA Championship.

Snedeker also switched coaches earlier this year, hiring Butch Harmon the week after the U.S. Open, and feels like his game is better than scores have indicated.

"I wish I could start this week over because I'm playing great," said Snedeker, who had a practice session with Harmon in Las Vegas earlier this week. "I didn't come through and that's frustrating on my part."

Snedeker's biggest struggles this week were on the greens. He took 65 in two rounds, including 34 on Saturday.

"It's just unfortunate that I had two bad days of putting at the same time," he said. "That's tough. I'll go back home and try to recap the year, see what -- no fun being my last event -- but I'll be ready to go, whenever my next start is going to be."
