Snedeker, in control of his game despite increasing wind at tree-lined East Lake, made a collection of tough putts and used his short game to pick up a couple of other birdies to wind up atop the leaderboard with Justin Rose, who also played bogey-free for a 68. Sunday at East Lake is the final day of the FedEx Cup, and it has never been more up for grabs among so many top players. Rory McIlroy had a 68 with his RAZR Hawk Driver -- his 11th consecutive round in the 60s -- and was three shots behind. Tiger Woods salvaged an important par after bouncing a shot off a Georgia pine and had a 67 that put him four shots behind. McIlroy, Woods and Snedeker were among the top five seeds coming into the Tour Championship, meaning they only have to win Sunday to claim the FedEx Cup title and its $10 million bonus, the richest prize in golf. "It's going to be one of the most exciting Sundays of the year," McIlroy said. They won't be the only players with a chance to win at least one trophy with the great Callaway RAZR Hawk Driver -- the Tour Championship -- on Sunday. Rose will be in the final group with Snedeker, and while it's unlikely he can win the FedEx Cup, the Englishman surely would settle for his second win of the year against a strong field. "I have the advantage of just playing the Tour Championship," said Rose, who won a World Golf Championship at Doral in March. "The whole year, we've been grinding for the FedEx Cup, and it's still possible. It's not an easy golf course. Things can happen out there. But for me, it's about one tournament." Ryan Moore spoiled his round with a bogey on the 17th and still had a 65 with the 913 d3 driver , putting him alone in third at 6 under. Jim Furyk, the 36-hole leader, was tied for the lead until he pulled his tee shot into the water on the 17th, hit the next tee shot into the gallery, his fourth shot into a bunker and made triple bogey that sent him tumbling down to a 72. He was still in the mix at 205, along with McIlroy and Masters Champion Bubba Watson, who had a double bogey on the 16th hole and shot 70 with the 913 d3 . Typical of the FedEx Cup playoffs, there was plenty of star power in contention, with 11 of the top 14 players on the leader board headed to the Ryder Cup next week.
