Brandt Snedeker completed 36 holes of the Deutsche Bank Championship in 6-over-par 72-76=148 and will miss the cut.
Sneds hit 24 greens in regulation, but had a tough time avoiding the big numbers. He squared nine bogeys and a double at TPC Boston. A nifty eagle-2 from just three yards away at the drivable, par-4 fourth today was reason to smile, but it didn't provide a spark. Since he started the week at 71st in FedExCup points, he won't advance in the Playoffs, but surely the more disappointing fact is that his chances of getting a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup team are near zero since he controlled his own destiny. Other candidates are playing well this week and Hunter Mahan won The Barclays where Snedeker missed the cut. It seemed like a match made in heaven given Sneds' affinity for Watson, but the stars did not align and the putts didn't fall. Aug 30 - 12:53 PM

Brandt Snedeker enters the Deutsche Bank Championship with plenty on the line.

There are goals that are in Snedeker's hands to accomplish at TPC Boston and those that are not. At 71st in the FedExCup standings, he must at least do enough damage to crack the top 70 in the standings in order to advance to the BMW Championship. Weighing just as heavily on his mind is the upcoming Ryder Cup. Captain Tom Watson will announce his three captain's picks following the DBC, and it is widely speculated that Snedeker is on the short list for consideration along with players like Hunter Mahan, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, Ryan Moore, Bill Haas and possibly a few others. A big finish this week could secure his FEC fate, as well as push the momentum in his direction for a coveted Ryder Cup spot.

Brandt Snedeker carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish inside the top 10 at 14-under 266.

Snedeker never caught fire, as he sometimes does when chasing in the final round of a tournament, but did manage to score four birdies to just one bogey. His 16'5" birdie at the par-4 11th was the only one outside of four feet. While he was unable to pick up a trophy, he continues to keep his name in the forefront of Ryder Cup consideration. Captain Tom Watson will name his three selections to round out the roster following the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Brandt Snedeker crafted a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to take control of the clubhouse at 11-under 199.

Sneds was off and running with a 20'8" birdie at the par-4 second, and an 8'3" eagle at the par-5 fifth severed as the obvious highlight. He reached the 18th hole having played his last 40 holes without a bogey before finally dropping a shot after a poor drive forced a pitch out. It is assumed that he is on the short list to become one of the three captain's picks for the U.S. squad in the upcoming Ryder Cup. Should he prevail on Sunday, he would seem to be a lock. There is plenty on the line for him.

Brandt Snedeker fashioned a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 7-under 133 at the halfway point, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The last winner at Forest Oaks (2007) logged top 10s at Sedgefield in 2009 and 2010, but hasn't made any noise since. Well, until today, that is. Snedeker landed 14 greens in regulation and poured in five birdies. He opened with highlight-reel conversions from 25'7" and 18'6" at Nos. 10 and 11, respectively. His last birdie found the cup from 13'11" at the par-4 eighth. Aside from peaking at a great time, he's elbowing his way into the conversation to be a captain's pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team. His affinity and corporate connection to captain Tom Watson aside, Sneds is playing some great golf of late. Moreover, he's healthy again.

Brandt Snedeker spun a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the PGA Championship and is the first to reach the 54-hole mark at 6-under 207.

Sneds poured in eight birdies on his lap around Valhalla Golf Club, squaring three bogeys in the process. Three of his birdies are worth a mention, falling from 15'2" on the par-3 11th, 25'2" on the par-3 14th and 10 feet on the par-4 15th. He landed 13 GIR and picked up well over a stroke with the flat stick. While this has not been one of the better seasons for Snedeker in recent memory, a win on Sunday would certainly change everything.
Aug 9 - 3:03 PM

Brandt Snedeker signed for a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and enters the finale at 6-under 204.

The highlight of Snedeker's three birdies at Firestone CC was easily his 14'11" effort at the par-4 11th, as his other two were each inside of five feet. His lone blemish was a bogey at the par-4 sixth. He enters the final round inside the top 10. Should he hold on, that would only be his third top-10 finish of 2013-14.
Aug 2 - 4:16 PM

Brandt Snedeker backed up his opening 68 at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with another in today's second round.

Sneds submitted a pair of 34s at Firestone today. He birdies two holes and bogeyed on on each nine. Three of his birdies disappeared from outside 11 feet, the longest stretching 24'5" at the par-4 third. At 4-under 136, he's seven strokes off Sergio Garcia's overnight lead.
Aug 1 - 7:21 PM

Brandt Snedeker submitted a 2-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, finishing three strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

His move to Butch Harmon is paying early dividends, another on which he cashed today. Snedeker exchanged four birdies with two bogeys. His par breakers were highlighted by a seven-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 17th. His longest conventional conversion measured 15'4" at 5. Sneder arrived having posted top 25s in four of this last five starts, including a T9 at the U.S. Open.

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.
Jul 22 - 10:14 PM

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.
Jun 29 - 2:57 PM

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".
Jun 26 - 1:40 PM

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.
