Brandt Snedeker captured the Canadian Open on Sunday, closing with a 2-under-par 70 for a three-stroke win.

It was his second PGA Tour title of 2013.

Dustin Johnson (70), William McGirt (68), Matt Kuchar (71) and Jason Bohn (71) tied for second place.

Johnson was tied for the lead after a birdie putt on No. 16. Then drove a shot out of bounds and hit the lip of a fairway bunker on his way to a triple bogey on the par-4 17th.

A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Snedeker took the lead on Saturday when second-round leader Hunter Mahan withdrew due to his wife going into labor. From there, Snedeker held on during the breezy final round at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario. Mahan and his wife, Kandi, gave birth on Sunday in Texas to a daughter, Zoe Olivia.

The 32-year-old Snedeker sunk two birdies and a bogey on the front nine. He birdied the par-4 10th to move to 16 under par but gave the shot back on the par-3 12th. He birdied the par-5 16th and parred the final two holes.

There’s really no surprise for golf fans that Tiger Woods has been selected as a captain’s pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

He has 71 wins and 14 major wins.

The surprise pick is 21-year-old Rickie Fowler, who has not won anything, but is a fan favorite because of his good-nature and his vast array of colorful clothing.

Captain Corey Pavin made the selections Tuesday morning at the New York Stock Exchange. He also added former major champions Zach Johnson and Stewart Cink to the American team that will try to retain the cup.

The Ryder Cup takes place October 1-3 at the Celtic Manor in Wales. The United States won two years ago at Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky, and will try to win for the first time overseas since 1993 at the Belfry.

The eight Americans who qualified after the PGA Championship were Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Jeff Overton.
