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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Brandt Snedeker kicked off his week at The RSM Classic with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 while taking on Sea Island Resort's Plantation Course, earning a spot inside the top 10 after day one.

At 26th in the Official World Golf Rankings, only Matt Kuchar ranks higher in this field. Snedeker is playing up to his talent so far, landing 14 greens and keeping a clean card with his 4-for-4 scrambling efforts. The Vandy product is making his first start of the new season but has kept busy after the Ryder Cup with a win at the Fiji International, also collecting a T25 in Japan (Bridgestone Open) before returning to the States. Despite training at Sea Island, this is just the third RSM Classic appearance for Snedeker, posting a T32 in the 2011 edition and missing the cut last year.

Brandt Snedeker fired a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in tough conditions at Natadola Bay Golf Course to destroy the field and win the Fiji International on 16-under 272, 9 shots clear of Michael Hendry in second.

The American notched a first European Tour victory in supreme style, never once looking like blowing his overnight 3-shot lead. Indeed, over the front nine he simply accelerated away from the field, making birdie at 1, 3, 6 and 9. With the wind up it was proving difficult for the chasers, even when Snedeker made bogey at 10. He simply ground out seven pars and made a final birdie at 17. He was clearly the class player in the field and he proved it in style. "To go out there and the play the way I did at the weekend, extend my lead, I'm very happy with how comfortable I felt in that situation," he said after claiming the 11th professional win of his career. "I'm just building all that positive stuff right now so it's a lot of fun."

Brandt Snedeker took control at the Fiji International at Natadola Bay Golf Course, hanging up a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in Saturday's third round to move into a three-shot lead.

One behind leader Matthew Giles at start of play, Snedeker opened up daylight on the field with a solid round featuring three birdies and a single bogey. That took him to 12-under 204, three clear of Anthony Houston (73). Giles is back at 8-under after a 75 while Michael Hendry (68) and Gareth Paddison (69) are five off the pace. Snedeker picked off birdies at 9 and 14 before adding another at 17 having bogeyed the previous hole. He said, "It was a tough day, I did a great job of hanging in there. Starting the day out, if you'd have told me I'd shoot a couple under I probably would have taken it tough as the conditions are and as many big numbers are out there. I've given myself a chance and going into tomorrow I need to finish it off. A three-shot lead in wind like this is one hole so I need to go out there and play a solid round of golf like I did today."

Brandt Snedeker moved up to T2 at the Fiji International after shooting a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in round two, his bogey-free lap of Natadola Bay Golf Course leaving him just a shot behind leader Matthew Giles who tops the standings on 11-under 133.

Snedeker, who went 3-0-0 in the USA's Ryder Cup win, carded birdies at 10, 15 and 17 to turn in 33 and picked up another shot at 1. He upped his title bid with an eagle-3 at the 514-yard 6th hole and added a walk-off par breaker at 9. He shares second spot on 10-under 134 with first-round leader Anthony Houston (69) and it's two strokes further back to Jake Higginbottom (70) in solo fourth. Snedeker said, "I had another really good day today, I drove the ball fantastic and had a lot of opportunities. Pretty solid, pretty happy with the way I played. I didn't make a bogey, each time you do that you're doing something right so hopefully I can build on this tomorrow."
