Past champ and World No. 25 Brandt Snedeker carded a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to conclude on 8-under 276, up seven spots to T13 with play still in progress.
After opening in 69-68-71, the 2011 playoff winner began T20 on 5-under, three shy of the overnight top 10. He conjured seven (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.487 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.903 on the greens. The Vanderbilt alum had one blemish, a double bogey-6 at the 13th, taking three to get on the surface and 3-putting from 49'1". He circled five birdies at Nos. 1 (from 24'9"), 4 (22'5"), 8, 16 and 18, walking off with a 25'5" birdie-3. This was the RBC Ambassador's 11th start of the season and sixth top 25, possibly a fourth top 10. Apr 16 - 3:58 PM

Past champ and World No. 25 Brandt Snedeker tossed up a bogey-free 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's second round of the RBC Heritage to reach the midpoint on 5-under 137, up 21 places to T14, five adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Graham DeLaet, and one of only two bogey-free rounds on the day thus far (Wesley Bryan, 67).

The 2011 playoff winner is making his 12th visit to Harbour Town Golf Links. He has three prior top-25 finishes but just the one (big) top 10. He arrived off a T27 at the Masters in his 38th overall major appearance. The Vanderbilt alum opened with a three-birdie one-bogey 69, squaring his final hole on Day 1 (the par-4 18th), and came back to card another three birdies in Round 2, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.658 SG: Putting. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he circled a pair of birdie-4s at Nos. 15 and 5, both from inside of eight feet, adding a 23-footer for a 3 at the par-4 11th. Sneds missed two scoring tries from inside of eight feet but knocked in a duo of par-savers from between six and 11 feet.

World No. 22 Brandt Snedeker painted a bogey-free 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the 2017 Masters to reach 2-over 218, up 15 spots on the live leaderboard to T20 and tying Jason Day for low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Snedeker is T21 while 54-hole co-leader Justin Rose posted the low round with 67.

The 36-year-old logs just the fourth blemish-free lap of the week and the only one on Moving Day thus far. This is his 10th appearance with three top 10s and a best of T3 in 2008 where he was solo 2nd thru 54 holes but closed in 5-over 77. The Vanderbilt alum entered the week 35th in FedExCup points with three top 10s in nine starts and a best of solo 4th at the AT&T Pebble Beach. He was a 54-hole co-leader two weeks prior at the Farmers but closed in 1-over 73 for T9. Snedeker began in 75-74, one inside the cut line, and found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation for a third straight lap, circling Nos. 1 (from 23 feet), 10 (24 feet) and a 2-putt version at the par-5 13th.
Apr 8 - 4:43 PM

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

World No. 24 Brandt Snedeker pieced together an even-par 33-38=71 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open but at 2-over 73-71=144, missed the 36-hole cut by two shots.

A total of 71 players (70 pros and one amateur) from a field of 143 pros and one amateur made the cut on even-par 142. Snedeker arrived for his seventh visit to Riviera CC off consecutive top-10 finishes, including a season-best solo 4th last week at the AT&T Pro-Am. He's had mixed fortunes at the Genesis however, offsetting a pair of top 20s now with four missed cuts and a 74th-place finish (of 75) on last visit in 2015. For the short week, the 36-year-old outbalanced six birdies with eight bogeys. Other notables with early exits include: 143- Tony Finau; Scott Piercy; Marc Leishman ... 144- Harris English; Ryan Moore ... 145- Billy Horschel ... 147- Francesco Molinari; Brooks Koepka; Kevin Chappell ... 148- Charl Schwartzel; Hideki Matsuyama; Kelly Kraft ... 148- Hudson Swafford.

World No. 27 and two-time champ Brandt Snedeker stalled out to a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to finish up his 10th appearance on 13-under 274, down two spots to solo 4th, six adrift of playing competitor and champion Jordan Spieth.

The 36-year-old was the winner here in 2013 and 2015, both record-setting performances at the AT&T Pro-Am, so this is a third top 10, all top 5s. After opening in 68-69-67, he began the final round in solo 2nd, six shy of Spieth. The Vanderbilt alum was 3-under thru eight holes, circling Nos. 2, 4 and 6, each from inside of five feet, but played his final 10 holes in birdie-less 1-over, squaring bogey-5 at the ninth and finishing with nine straight pars. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.671 strokes with the flat stick, lowlighted by a birdie-whiff at the par-3 17th from 28 inches. This was Sned's fifth start of the season and second top 10, joining T9 at the Farmers, where he was a 54-hole co-leader.

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, two-time AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am champ Brandt Snedeker rallied for a 5-under-par 30-37=67 in the third round to toss 11-under 204 on the board, up two spots to solo 2nd and the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Snedeker remained in solo 2nd, six in arrears to 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth, who shot 65.

It was a tale of two nines for the World No. 27. He began off No. 10 tee and was 2-over thru six holes after bogey-5s at 10 and 15 (failed scrambles), but then played his final 12 holes in blemish-free 7-under. The Tennessee native and resident found eight (of 14) fairways and just 11 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 1.455 putts per GIR and 2.399 SG: Putting. His lone birdie on the back nine was at the par-4 16th and then connected three straight two times, at Nos. 2-4 and 6-8, highlighted by a 31-footer at the par-4 third, his only conversion from greater than six feet. Sneds, winner here in 2013 and 2015, missed a 6-footer for birdie-3 at nine for a 29.
Feb 11 - 7:04 PM

Playing Spyglass Hill Golf Course, two-time AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am champion Brandt Snedeker signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 after the two-day second round to post 6-under 137, down one spot to T5 and four back of 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders Jordan Spieth and Derek Fathauer.

The World No. 27 has two top 10s in nine prior appearances, both wins (2013/2015). He arrived this week off T9 two weeks ago in his title defense at the Farmers. The Vanderbilt alum got 14 holes of his second round completed on Friday before play was suspended for the day (fog). He returned to play holes 15-18 with three pars and a birdie-3 at 17, rounding off a four-birdie one-bogey effort on just seven (of 14) fairways but 14 greens in regulation.

Brandt Snedeker took on Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course in round one of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, escaping with a 3-under-par 32-36=68 to find himself one off the early pack of co-leaders.

Snedeker arrived with a boom-or-bust record at this event, winning it twice but also finishing outside the top 20 in all of his seven other visits. It's looking like another boom week after round one, as he circled five birdies and squared just two bogeys. Snedeker has a reputation for thriving in these windy coastal events, so it's no surprise to see him near the top after facing top conditions in the opening round. As the weather cooperates more throughout the week, it will be interesting to watch where Snedeker finishes up by week's end.
Feb 10 - 1:15 PM

Overnight co-leader Brandt Snedeker back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in today's final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to conclude on 8-under 280, down eight places into a five-way T9, five shy of champion Jon Rahm, who shot 65.

The defending and two-time champ began R4 sharing the lead with Patrick Rodgers, one clear of rookie C.T. Pan and Tony Finau, the latter completing the final threesome. After opening in progressively worse laps of 68-69-70, but hitting more greens in regulation each day, 10, 13 and 15, respectively, he mustered just nine, losing 2.257 strokes approaching-the-green. The World No. 28 went 5-for-5 in sand saves, but failed to get up-and-down four other times, outbalancing three birdies, including a hole out from a greenside bunker for birdie-2 at 11. On the bright side, this is his seventh top 10 in 11 appearances, but drops to 3-for-9 in his career as a 54-hole leader/co-leader, last converting at the 2013 RBC Canadian Open. More recently, he was a 54-hole leader/co-leader two times last season (Sony, RBC Canadian Open) but lost both despite closing with sub-par rounds.
Jan 29 - 7:52 PM

Defending- and two-time champ Brandt Snedeker conjured up a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in today's third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 9-under 207, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with Patrick Rodgers, who shot 67.

The World No. 28 will be in the final group on Sunday with Rodgers and Tony Finau, who trails the lead duo by one. He began the third round in a two-way T2 on 7-under, one shy of 18- and 36-hole leader Justin Rose. Playing out of the final threesome, he raced out with back-to-back birdies at holes 2 and 3, both from inside of five feet, but stalled out from there, exchanging bogey-5 at 12 (failed scramble) with a final birdie from 31 inches at the par-4 17th. The Vanderbilt alum striped 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and a dismal -0.818 SG: Putting. He'll be vying for his ninth TOUR title in 272 career starts (271 pro), first since his 6-shot come-from-behind victory here last year.
Jan 28 - 6:27 PM

Course horse Brandt Snedeker tore through Torrey Pines South with a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in round two of the Farmers Insurance Open, reaching 7-under 137 to find himself one off the 36-hole clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

The defending champ is no stranger to success on this property. It is easy to see why when you watch him putt these typically tough poa annua greens. It was a non-stop display of putting prowess today, splashing home eight putts from outside seven feet. Despite missing a pair of bunnies from inside five feet, Snedeker walked off the course gaining 4.814 strokes putting on the day. The Vandy product is just one stroke off the pacesetter, Justin Rose, and will be searching for his third career victory at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Jan 27 - 6:55 PM

Brandt Snedeker won the battle with Mother Nature en route to victory at the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open, and he makes his way back this week for another crack at Torrey Pines.

Snedeker started six strokes off the pace in last year's finale before posting what many consider the round of the year. On a day where the field averaged 77.9 due to extreme winds, the Vandy product twirled a one-bogey, 3-under 69. That vaulted him into sole possession of the lead as play finished up on Monday. It was his second victory at Torrey Pines (2012) and sixth career top 10 here, in 10 trips. Snedeker is quite the course horse and gamers should not let that be overlooked when setting lineups this week.
Jan 24 - 8:47 AM

World No. 28 Brandt Snedeker is on Maui for his fifth SBS Tournament of Champions where he owns two top-3 finishes, including T3 last year, and nothing worse than T11 (2014).

The Vanderbilt alum won the 2016 Farmers (49 weeks ago), coming from six back to begin the final round to claim his eighth TOUR title in his 246th pro start. It capped off a run that began with a T3-P2 in Hawaii. The 36-year-old logged four further top 10s in 21 starts post-Farmers, but none in the Playoffs, lowlighted by a T17 (of 30) at the TOUR Championship. One week later, he went 3-0-0 in the Ryder Cup, the only player unbeaten and untied, and rode that to a 9-shot win the next week at the Fiji International. Snedeker played just one event in the fall, a disappointing T45 at the RSM, but also posted a T6 (of 18) at the Hero World Challenge.
Jan 3 - 6:41 PM

Brandt Snedeker sets up shop in New Providence, Bahamas, ahead of this week's Hero World Challenge.

World No. 28 is making his second appearance at this event, but his first at Albany in The Bahamas. During the 2012 edition he see-sawed his way toward a T13 finish, posting a 3-under-par 75-68-73-69=285 by week's end. More recently, he posted a 3-0-0 record at the 2016 Ryder Cup before heading overseas to win the Fiji International (PGA TOUR of Australasia). After that, he settled for a T25 at the Bridgestone Open (Japan Golf Tour) before returning to the states to record a T45 at The RSM Classic. The 8-time PGA TOUR winner is always a threat to hoist the trophy, but the strength of this week's field puts him towards the back of the line in terms of expected output.
