Brandt Snedeker submitted a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open.
The defending champion is still hanging around thanks to a signature Snedeker round with the flat stick. He rolled in five putts from outside of seven feet, including birdie bombs from 26'11" and 15'1" on the second and fourth, respectively. He walked into the clubhouse with a 2.330 strokes gained-putting. At 5-under 205, Snedeker is a longshot to win on Sunday, but can't be counted out just yet. Jul 26 - 2:32 PM

Brandt Snedeker opened his title defense of the RBC Canadian Open with a 1-under-par 37-32=69, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Sneds has to wait until next year to play Glen Abbey again. It was on that historic layout where he won last year's edition of the RBC, but he navigated Royal Montreal fairly as the defending champ. He buried respective birdies from 29'7" and 11'8" at Nos. 11 and 12. Alas, Snedeker would squared bogeys at 13 and 14 before concluding his opening nine with a double-bogey 6 at the 18th where he rinsed his tee ball. However, he played bogey-free on his inward side, picking off three birdies, including a walk-off conversion from 14'8" for birdie and a red number.

Brandt Snedeker won the 2013 RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey and will try and defend his title this week.

Much like the U.S. Open and The Open Championship, the RBC Canadian Open frequently changes venues. Snedeker's defense won't be at Glen Abbey, rather the Royal Montreal GC. It remains to be seen if defending on a different layout will prove to be more or less pressure, but what is known is that he's never seen this course in competition. The last time the Canadian Open was contested here was in 2001, and while the 2007 Presidents Cup came to Royal Montreal, Sneds wasn't on the team.

Brandt Snedeker carded an even-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National and is the first man in the clubhouse at 2-over 286.

Snedeker erased a double bogey at the par-4 fourth and a bogey at the par-4 fifth with a 32'7" eagle on the par-5 sixth and a 9'5" birdie at the par-4 eighth. He would play Congressional's final 10 holes with 10 pars. Given how difficult the course is playing, he's already moved from 41st to well inside the top 30, and should leave the Bethesda, Maryland with a top-25 finish.

Brandt Snedeker shot a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Quicken Loans National, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Only an in-form Sneds can miss 10 greens in regulation and still paint a number on the board. He traded five birdies with four bogeys at Congressional today. His most notable par breaker measured 14'3" at the par-5 sixth hole, but his longest conversion dropped for bogey at the par-4 11th -- his second hole of the round -- where he rinsed his approach and ultimately drilled the putt from 17'10".

Brandt Snedeker blistered TPC River Highlands for a 6-under-par 34-30=64 in the final round of the Travelers Championship, grabbing the clubhouse lead with a 10-under 270.

Snedeker silenced the injury talks this week and saved the best for last. He gave two strokes back on the par-3 fifth hole but was otherwise flawless, circling eight birdies total. The final round included three putts outside of 10 feet, including a 23'3" bomb on the 18th green to go out in style. This will be his first time recording back-to-back top 15s on the season. Snedeker is finding form, and gamers should take note.

Brandt Snedeker stapled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 on the board in his opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

This is an outstanding follow-up after he shared ninth place at the U.S. Open and underwent tests for some discomfort on his left side. He missed only two (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation at TPC River Highlands today, picking off five birdies along the way. Three of the par breakers measured 11-14 feet and he poured in 10-footer for par at the par-4 third to keep his card clean. Sneds could be the accidental find of the summer if he keeps this up.

In the wake of feeling discomfort on his left side during his final round of the U.S. Open on Sunday, Brandt Snedeker underwent tests on Monday.

Specifically, Sneds had an MRI and at least one X-Ray, both showing nothing wrong. At Pinehurst, he told Golfweek that this is a new health concern. "I don't know what it is," he said. "Something didn't feel right this morning and it was pretty brutal all day. Out of nowhere, something just flared up and I don't know if it's a rib or a back or muscle or what." He still managed a share of ninth place for just his second top 10 of the season. Snedeker is making his fourth start at TPC River Highlands but first since a T24 in 2011.

Brandt Snedeker could only muster a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the U.S. Open, but managed a top-10 finish at 2-over 282.

Sneds was battling a balky back during his round, prompting an update from the NBC live telecast on the matter as he was making the turn. He persevered, squaring four bogeys to just one birdie on his lap around Pinehurst No. 2. Considering he entered the week 117th in the FedExCup standings and without a top 10 since a T8 at Bay Hill back in March, this was an unexpectedly good result.

Brandt Snedeker could only muster a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the U.S. Open and has retreated to 1-under 209 for the tournament.

Snedeker squared four birdies and circled two bogeys over his first 12 holes before settling in with a ticket to the par train over the last six holes at Pinehurst No. 2. Like everyone else in the field, he needed 36-hole leader Martin Kaymer to stumble to have a chance at snaring his first major championship. While Kaymer obliged to a degree, Snedeker didn't hold up his end of the bargain. He will try and post a low one in Sunday's final round.

Brandt Snedeker chased his opening 69 at the U.S. Open with a 2-under-par 35-33=68 to post 3-under 137 and sit seven strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Wow. What a time to round into form. The Vanderbilt product hit 12 greens in regulation today and limited the damage to a double bogey at the par-4 11th hole, his second of the round. He outbalanced with four birdies. Snedeker has a solid record in this tournament, but he's been quiet for most of the year since suffering a knee injury in China late in 2013.
Jun 13 - 6:45 PM

Brandt Snedeker opened the 114th U.S. Open with a 1-under-par 31-38=69 to post the very early clubhouse lead.

Sneds went out in the fourth threesome off the first tee at Pinehurst No. 2 this morning. He wasted no time in making his presence known with birdies on four of his first eight holes. He started his inward set bogey-double bogey-bogey before settling down to play the remaining six in 1-under. The U.S. Open would be a heckuva spot to pick off his first top 35 in six starts.
Jun 12 - 12:30 PM

Brandt Snedeker failed to make the weekend in his 2005 trip to Pinehurst No. 2 but is back at this week's U.S. Open for another crack at it.

The six-time PGA TOUR winner relishes the challenge that the U.S. Open typically brings, proven by the five top 25s in seven U.S. Open starts. Snedeker has a lackluster 2014 campaign going, with just one top 10, but gamers should not be afraid to pick the proven winner as an under-the-radar option with high upside.

Brandt Snedeker fashioned a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in his second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Sneds opened birdie-birdie at holes 1 and 2 today and rode the momentum to what it his lowest aggregate since the second round (64) of the WM Phoenix Open on Jan. 31. He went 6-for-7 in scrambling today and found five birdies, the most notable measuring 11'8" at the par-4 sixth hole. However, his longest conversion dropped for par from 14 feet at the par-3 eighth where he found the rough well right of the green with his tee ball. He's 4-under 136 at the halfway point, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Brandt Snedeker posted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to join Ryan Moore in the early clubhouse lead at 5-under 211.

Snedeker was slow out of the gates, following three pars with his lone bogey of the day at the par-4 fourth. He would bounce back strong, grabbing four birdies over the next five holes including a 13'8" highlight at the par-4 fifth. His final two birdies came on the par-4 12th and the par-5 16th, with the latter falling from 41'1". As that would suggest, he gained just over two strokes with the putter at the time of his posting. He has just one top-10 finish this season, but another hot round on Sunday would surely change that.
