Brandt Snedeker closed with 66-63 to beat Billy Mayfair and Tim Petrovic by two strokes to capture last year's title. The victory was Snedeker's first on the PGA TOUR.
The victory also helped Snedeker jump to ninth on the FedExCup points list, meaning he qualified for all four rounds of the playoffs.
Coming off the final World Golf Championships event and the final major of the season, this week's field is missing many big names as players have four playoff events and for some, the Ryder Cup, over the next six weeks.
Only one player in the top-20 in the world is scheduled to play this week, world No. 5 Vijay Singh. This will mark Singh's seventh appearance at this event, but first since he tied for ninth in 1999. His best finish here is a tie for seventh in 1995.
GOLF CHANNEL and CBS Sports will split coverage this weekend. The FedExCup Playoffs start next week with the Barclays, where Steve Stricker is the defending champion.
