World No. 24 Brandt Snedeker authored a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship to post 10-under 274, up 12 spots on the live leaderboard to T6 and good for the low round of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Snedeker finished in a three-way T7, four back of champion Dustin Johnson.
This was the 36-year-old's sixth appearance with a previous-best T17 in 2015 (Trump National Doral). Overall, it was his 21st WGC event with three prior top 10s and a best of T9 at the 2016 Match Play. The Vanderbilt alum's best in stroke play was T10 at the 2015 HSBC Champions, so he should eclipse that. After opening with 75, he carded 68-66 to begin on 4-under (T18), eight back of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas but just three shy of the overnight top 10. The Tennessee native and resident landed nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 2.304 SG: Putting. He was bogey-free 7-under thru 17 holes, circling Nos. 1, 5, 11, 12 and three straight at 15-17, but walked off with bogey-5 at 18 on a failed scramble. Mar 5 - 5:02 PM
