Brandt Snedeker has decided not to play this week's RBC Canadian Open.
Snedeker is a headliner on Team RBC. He's also the most recent champion at Glen Abbey Golf Club (2013), so today's decision is a surprise. He missed the cut at St. Andrews by two shots but sits ninth in the FedExCup standings. Sneds is always one of the busiest at this time of year what with his association with RBC and the fact that he's a regular at Firestone and Sedgefield. UPDATE: Snedeker revealed on Twitter why he's not playing. "Very disappointed to not play @RBCCanadianOpen this week, but after flying to Colorado to see my Dr, I was advised my left hip needs rehab ... And rest to heal. I tweaked it at the U.S. Open, but luckily there is no structural damage. We are confident this will get me back to 100% ... I am so lucky to have sponsors that support me and my career 100%. I will miss Glen Abbey and all the great fans in Canada.." Jul 20 - 4:47 PM

Brandt Snedeker turned in a pair of 1-over-par 73s at The 144th Open Championship and missed the cut by two strokes.

The second round concluded, mercifully, 38 hours and 46 minutes after it began. Eighty golfers survived the cut; all will play the final two rounds. Snedeker connected for five birdies during his two loops of St. Andrews, but he also squared five bogeys and a double bogey-6 at the 17th hole in the second round proved the ultimate difference. The good news is that, since he won't be in Scotland through Monday for The Open, he won't be pressured to get to Glen Abbey for next week's RBC Canadian Open where he won in 2013. Other notables that missed the cut include: 145--Kevin Kisner; Shane Lowry; Victor Dubuisson ... 146--Russell Knox ... 147--Bubba Watson; J.B. Holmes; Danny Lee; Ian Poulter; Keegan Bradley; Ryan Moore ... 148--Miguel Angel Jiménez ... 149--Bill Haas; Thomas Bjørn ... 150--Charley Hoffman ... 151--Tiger Woods ... 154--Nick Faldo ... 156--Tom Watson.

Brandt Snedeker back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in today's final round of the Travelers Championship and his 10-under 270 total was good for a five-way tie for 10th place.

Snedeker, playing in the penultimate group, began his final frame at 11-under (T4) and three strokes back. He struggled with his game all day, clocking in at -0.786 strokes gained: tee-to-green and -0.700 strokes gained: putting. His 'only' two birdies came at the 'only' two par 5s at TPC River Highlands, squaring bogey at the par-3 fourth and swallowing a devastating double bogey-6 on the 71st hole of the tournament. The 34-year-old hit only 10 greens in regulation on Sunday and the 17th wasn't one of them, dropping his approach (from the fairway, 150 yards out) woefully short and into the water. His consolation is his fourth consecutive top 10 (T2-T6-8-T10) and eighth of the season (19 starts). He also nips his T11-finish at the 2014 Travelers for career-best in five total appearances.

Brandt Snedeker got it going in the third round of the Travelers Championship to the tune of a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63, currently tied low round of the day with Patrick Rodgers.

Snedeker, who bogeyed his last two holes in round two on Friday, began the day at 4-under (T34) and seven shots off the pace of 36-hole leader Bubba Watson. As Watson was beginning his third round (with pars at Nos. 1 and 2), Snedeker was closing out his, missing from 10'10" on the last, which would have been his eighth birdie on the day. Still, Sneds penciled in seven par breakers on the card, including a 32'10" roll on the par-4 fourth for his longest conversion on the day. The 34-year-old's personal-best of T11 (in four Travelers appearances) came in last year's edition, highlighted by a final-round 64. More than likely, he'll need something similar on Sunday this year to contend for the title, but at the moment, he's the 54-hole clubhouse leader at 11-under 199.

Brandt Snedeker polished off his 115th U.S. Open with a 2-under-par 32-36=68 for a four-day total of 1-under 279, currently T7 on the live leaderboard.

Snedeker began his final frame at 1-over (T9) and five off the pace of the four, 54-hole co-leaders. He entered the week on the heels of consecutive top-10 finishes, including runner-up at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Nothing changed as Sneds, who owns three top 10s in eight previous championship starts, including T8 in 2010, took a serious peek at the top of the board, turning in 3-under 32. His outward half featuring four consecutive circles on Nos. 6-9, pushing him to the first page of the leaderboard at 2-under total. The 34-year-old hung tough with a 10' par putt on the tenth, but started his fade with his second bogey of the day at No. 11. A three-putt par, albeit it from 84' on the drivable par-4 12th, was followed by a double bogey-6 at No. 14. He steadied himself enough to add circles on 16 and 18. Snedeker landed 13 greens in regulation today and navigated Chambers Bay's sketchy greens with a minimal 29 putts.

Brandt Snedeker tacked on an even-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the 115th U.S. Open and settles in at 1-over 211 after 54 holes.

Snedeker began the festivities at 1-over (T21) and six shots off the pace of the 36-hole leaders. He exchanged two birdies with two bogeys, striping 10 (of 14) fairways and hitting 11 greens in regulation. The 34-year-old's split included a ten-footer at the par-4 seventh and an improbable 29-footer at the par-5 eighth, a culmination of a two-putt birdie from 123 feet. He had a chance for a sub-par round but missed from 8' at the last. With 18 to play, Snedeker currently sits T12, two off the clubhouse lead and six back of the leaders on the course.
Jun 20 - 8:36 PM

Brandt Snedeker cruised to a 5-under-par 33-31=64 in today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and posted 12-under 265, one stroke adrift of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

If not for an opening 71 at TPC Four Seasons, Sneds would be in the hunt for his second title of the season. He carded respective round of 66 and 64 before today's six-birdie performance that included only one bogey. At the time he signed his card he sat T3 on the leaderboard. This success comes on the coattails of last week's co-runner-up at Colonial. Each finish represents his first top 15 in both events.
May 31 - 4:32 PM

Brandt Snedeker signed for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 after today's final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 11-under 269 was good for a three-way tie for second, one stroke behind the winner Chris Kirk.

Snedeker had three chances over his last three holes to move to 12-under and tie Kirk but couldn't get it done, including a 12'1" missed birdie putt at the last. The 34-year-old began the day at 8-under (T4) and three shots off the pace. For his efforts, he found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, requiring a total of 28 putts on his round. As he debriefs, he'll look back on the par-3 eighth and 13th, where he three-putted both. In total, Sneds circled six birdies with his longest conversion coming from 35'5" on the sixth. He also chipped-in for birdie on 11. His T2 is a career-best in five CPI appearances.
May 24 - 6:51 PM

Brandt Snedeker enjoyed a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 8-under 202 has him three shots adrift of the 54-hole lead.

Snedeker peppered 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation on his way to a five birdie, one bogey stroll around Colonial CC. He burst out of the blocks with three straight birdies culminating with a 36'3" bomb at the par-4 third. Consecutive pars on Nos. 4-11 were assured with par saves on the eighth and the ninth, the latter by holing an 8'9" putt to keep his momentum intact. Overall, the 34-year-old would go 4-for-5 in scrambles, dropping his lone shot on the par-4 14th, failing to get up-and-down from a green-side bunker. Snedeker added back-nine birdies on the par-4 12th (from 8'8") and at the par-4 17th (from 13').
May 23 - 4:30 PM

Brandt Snedeker pieced together a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to post 4-under 136 at the halfway poin.

Sneds missed half of the greens in regulation, but limited the damage to two bogeys while wrangling three birdies, including a roll from 11'7" at the par-4 10th hole to open the round. His longest conversion disappeared for par from 18'5" at the par-3 13th. So, while he's landed only 21 GIR thus far, Sneds is just four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 22 - 1:55 PM

Brandt Snedeker posted 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

He's been up and down since winning at Pebble Beach, so gamers have learned quickly to be careful whenever possible. Today, he went 5-for-7 in scrambling with two bogeys, but circled an eagle and three birdies. The most notable par breaker was the 3 at the par-5 11th where he converted an 11-yard try from the fringe. Snedeker signed his card sitting among the throng two shot off the pace of the threesome sharing the clubhouse lead.
May 7 - 6:39 PM

Brandt Snedeker rebounded from a 6-over-par 77 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage with a 7-under 33-31=64 in today's second round to post 1-under 141 and make the cut by one stroke.

Sneds passed the gut-check after missing the cut at last week's Masters. He found nine (of 14) fairways and went 6-for-6 in scrambling today while picking off seven birdies. Three of them ran 10-15 feet. At last check, Snedeker's strokes gained: putting read 3.749 for the day. Today's aggregate matches his season low at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in the opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am where he won by three strokes.
Apr 17 - 5:20 PM

Brandt Snedeker looks to add some major championship hardware to his trophy case as he arrives this week at the 79th Masters.

Snedeker enjoys the confines of Augusta National Golf Club and it shows as it's historically been the major in which he most consistently performs. In seven trips, he's missed the cut just once, finishing inside the top 20 on four occasions. He was the 54-hole co-leader in 2013 before fading to to a T6. His form on the season is top notch as well, collecting seven top 20s in 11 starts, including a victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Gamers can proceed with confidence this week.
Apr 7 - 8:32 AM

Brandt Snedeker lit up Bay Hill Club and Lodge to the tune of a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33 66 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Snedeker posts an early, but likely insignificant, clubhouse lead at 8-under 208. His round featured four birdies and an eagle, with the eagle falling from 15'11" on the par-5 16th. Three of his birdies fell from 11 feet or longer, with two of those outside of 20 feet, so the flat stick was clearly working. He gained just shy of three strokes with the putter at the time of his posting. He also split 13 of 14 fairways, which is accuracy we aren't used to seeing from Sneds.

Brandt Snedeker was the beneficiary of the break of the year en route to a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

It was one of those rounds that a casual fan would ignore for one highlight. It occurred at famous finisher at Bay Hill. After striping his drive 298 yards into the fairway, Snedeker had 163 yards to the hole. He hit it short. The ball fell to earth on a rock fronting the green. It bounded straight up and landed on another rock, which then propelled it its resting spot just five-and-a-half feet from the target. He'd settle for a two-putt par, but one must not get greedy after that fortune. (See the shot for yourself at the link below.) More importantly, it maintained momentum after birdies at 13, 16 and 17, the last of which courtesy of a zero-putt 11-yarder. He traded two birdies for one bogey coming home. Sneds' longest conventional conversion traveled 13'4" at the par-5 fourth. He went on to sign his card positioned just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
