Brandt Snedeker put a lid on the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in today's final round.
Sneds traded six birdies with four bogeys to post 6-under 282 and sit T10 on the leaderboard. It's a relieving result after his mid-tournament withdrawal in Japan two weeks ago, and it piggybacks a T10 in Vegas the week before that. Nov 9 - 2:03 AM

Brandt Snedeker posted a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to crash the party at Sheshan International.

With today's move, Snedeker is fulfilling the notion that he was going to be a sneaky play at Sheshan International. Sure enough, at 4-under 212, he's five strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead. He rebounded from a bogey-4 at the sixth hole with four birdies against no more bogeys or worse.

Brandt Snedeker carded a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, checking up two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

As we relayed two weeks ago, Snedeker battled an upset stomach at the Bridgestone Open in Japan and had to withdraw at the midpoint as a result. After taking last week off, he promptly opened par-birdie at Sheshan International today. He alternated two bogeys with two birdies before walking off with a birdie-4 at the 18th hole, his third birdie on the par 5s during the stroll. Sneds tied for 10th in his last start in the U.S. (Shriners), so his stock is rising rapidly again, and that's a great sign not only for the remainder of the WGC-HSBC, but 2015 as well.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew from the Bridgestone Open before his third round due to an upset stomach.

Loosely translating the Japanese-language edition of JGTO.org, Snedeker's explanation fills in the blank that wasn't chased by mainstream media since his WD 24 hours ago. He added that he needs to rest while offering an apology to tournament organizers that paved the way for his inclusion in one of the Japan Golf Tour's cornerstone events. Assuming he's ready to go, we'll see him again at the WGC-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew prior to his third round of the Bridgestone Open on the Japan Golf Tour.

Sneds cruised into the weekend at 2-under-par 71-69=140 -- the cut fell at 2-over 144 -- but he's shown as having withdrawn. No news has surfaced to explain why and he hasn't tweeted since Wednesday, so we'll have to await for the other shoe to drop on Saturday. His next scheduled start is the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6-9.

Brandt Snedeker carded a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and tied for 10th at 13-under 271.

Threes were wild on the front nine at TPC Summerlin, as Snedeker recorded three birdies, three pars and three bogeys going out. He eliminated mistakes on the back, circling two birdies to go with seven pars. The flat stick was relatively quiet with the exception of a 14'2" birdie at the par-5 ninth hole. After a T57 at the Frys.com Open last week, those invested in Sneds have to be happy about this week's effort.

Brandt Snedeker battled for a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 11-under 202.

Three of Snedeker's five par breakers occurred from longer than 20 feet, with a chip-in birdie from 45'1" on the par-3 fifth and a 43-foot eagle on the par-5 16th standing out among the highlights. He spread a pair of bogeys across TPC Summerlin as well. Ball-striking wasn't all that impressive, splitting eight of 14 fairways and landing just 11 GIR. He will try and go low in the finale in an effort to score a big finish early in the 2014-15 season.

Brandt Snedeker followed his opening 67 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in his second round.

At 7-under 135, Snedeker is just three swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. He went 1-for-2 in scrambling today for a bogey and added a three-putt bogey from inside 25 feet at the par-4 sixth hole. Sitting birdie-free 2-over through seven, he finally started to fill the cup with a birdie conversion from 14'5" at the par-3 eighth. Sneds added two birdies and an eagle (from just 7'11" at the par-5 16th) coming in. His longest conversion of the round disappeared for birdie from 14'10" at 12.

Brandt Snedeker submitted a 4-under-par 35-32=67 for his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

It was just a matter of time before Sneds took it deep again, at least in theory. He failed to perform with the heat on to qualify for the Ryder Cup and opened the 2014-15 season with a forgettable T57 at Silverado. Today at TPC Summerlin, he hit 13 greens in regulation and squared just one bogey when he whiffed on a par attempt from 6'3" at the par-4 12th hole, his third of the round. However, he bounced back with an eagle from just off the green and 24 yards away at the par-5 13th. The longest of his three birdies measured 12'7" at 7. Snedeker sits three strokes off the new clubhouse lead.

Brandt Snedeker finished in a share of 24th place at the 2009 Shriners Hospital for Children Open and returns for the first time since to take on TPC Summerlin.

Snedeker posted four sub-70 red numbers in his Shriners debut. He earned a cut made last week at the Frys.com Open, but failed to crack 70 in any round. The Vanderbilt product will need to turn on his scoring shades this week as it will be a birdiefest at TPC Summerlin. Given his regained form starting in the middle of 2014, Snedeker is a strong option for gamers in any format.

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.

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.
