11:48 am on 24 September 2012

The American golfer Brandt Snedeker is 12 million dollars richer after picking up the US PGA's Fedex Cup with victory at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Snedeker finished 3 shots ahead of Englishman Justin Rose.

It is his fourth title on the U.S. circuit and his second of the year.

It's been an emotional few weeks for Snedeker, his father was able to watch him after having a liver transplant, he visited a friends son in hospital last night and he's waiting on the arrival of his second child.

He says he's learnt a lot in recent weeks on the course and feels his financial win fall will help others more than him.

Snedeker will now turn his attention to the Ryder Cup between the United States and Europe next weekend.
