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. Nov 29 - 7:50 AM

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."
Oct 8 - 4:20 AM

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."

America's Brandt Snedeker dispatched European Ryder Cup rookie Andy Sullivan 3&1 in Sunday Singles to cap off his second appearance with a 3-0-0 record while Sullivan dipped to 0-2-0.

At the time of Snedeker's win, the live scoreboard read: USA 14.0 Europe 10.0, inching Team USA ever so closer to reclaiming the cup. He won his Friday PM four-ball 5&4 (with Brooks Koepka), came back Saturday morning to win 3&2 in foursomes (also with Koepka), and after beginning 2 down to Sullivan's birdies at 1 and 3 on Sunday, stormed to a 2UP lead with birdies on 4, 5, 7 and 8, a lead he would never relinquish. The 30-year-old Englishman climbed to within 1 hole with birdie-4 at 10, but the 35-year-old American won the 12th with par and finished off the match with birdie-2 at 17. Snedeker, who improved his career Ryder Cup record to 4-2-0, was the only Team USA member to go undefeated on the week.

A back-nine birdie burst saw Brooks Koepka and Brandt Snedeker defeat Henrik Stenson and Matthew Fitzpatrick 3&2 in the second set of foursomes in the 2016 Ryder Cup, completing a 2-for-2 record for the week.

Although the American pairing never once trailed in the match, it was a tight affair through 12 holes. But Brandt Snedeker holed birdie putts from 8' at 13 and 10' at 14, then Koepka joined him to drain one from 25' at 15 and although the Europeans matched them on 14 they failed to do so either side and slipped two down. On 16 Fitzpatrick's approach found water before they conceded yet another American birdie and with it the match. Earlier the Americans had been wayward, but always recovered. Koepka hooked on 1, but they made par. Snedeker hooked on 10, again they made par. Even a Koepka shank on 12 didn't stop them halving 12 in bogey. Koepka and Snedeker made five birdies and two bogeys in playing the 16 holes in roughly 3-under-par and helping U.S.A. to a 6-4 lead.

Brandt Snedeker looks to improve upon his undesirable Ryder Cup record as he takes his talents to Hazeltine National Golf Club for the 41st running of the event.

The Vandy product is 1-2-0 in his Ryder Cup career, playing only the 2012 edition at Medinah. Paired up with Jim Furyk, the duo split foursome matches with the heavy-hitters Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell before Snedeker would go on to lose his singles match to Paul Lawrie on Sunday. Furyk is not on the team this time so perhaps they'll pair him with Ryan Moore who brings a similar fairways-and-greens style ala Furyk, or they could pair him with fellow Southerner J.B. Holmes for the Kentucky-Tennessee connection. With Snedeker ranking seventh on TOUR in proximity from the rough, Holmes may actually be an ideal alternate shot partner.

Brandt Snedeker kept his name in the mix with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 during round two of the TOUR Championship, arriving at halftime on 1-over 141.

Snedeker swallowed a pair of double bogeys in his opening round but bounced back nicely today by trading three birdies with two bogeys. The 35-year-old split just five fairways on the day and landed a mediocre 12 greens. Instead he did most of the damage with his short game as he gained 1.069 strokes around-the-green and 0.924 strokes putting. The 2012 champ sat at 2-under through 36 the year of his victory, putting him just three strokes off that winning pace. Snedeker shot 64-68 over the weekend back in 2012.

Brandt Snedeker took home the hardware at the 2012 TOUR Championship and finds himself back this week for another crack at East Lake Golf Club.

Snedeker cleared the field by three strokes in his 2012 victory, but hasn't found much success otherwise on this Donald Ross layout. He's finished T16 or worse in four other appearances. During his win he gained 6.42 strokes putting and 2.39 strokes around-the-green. He will need another stellar short-game performance this week if he wants to find the podium again. Currently ranked 11th in the FedExCup race, he'll need a win and cooperation from golfers currently ranked 1 through 5 in the FEC standings, if he wants to take home the FedExCup trophy for a second time in his career.

Past champ Brandt Snedeker conjured up a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish up his 10th appearance on 15-under 265, up three spots to T3 with play currently suspended due to inclement weather.

The 35-year-old was in the fourth-to-last twosome and was the last pairing to make their laps official. When play resumes, six players need to complete their respective rounds, but barring some craziness, Snedeker should finish no worse than T5. He began the finale six back of 54-hole leader Si Woo Kim, which is the exact final-round deficit he faced at this year's Farmers, which he eventually won for his eighth TOUR title. While the FIO finished on Monday, Sneds posting a closing 3-under 69 on Sunday to win by one. He had it going early today, circling four birdies to go out in bogey-free 4-under, but hit the skids from there with bogeys at 10 and 15 before a closing birdie at the 18th. The Vanderbilt alum nets his seventh top 10 of the season in 23 starts (12th top 25), and connected four red numbers for the first time since P2 at the Sony Open in January.

Past champ Brandt Snedeker authored a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 12-under 198, up one spot to T6 with play still in progress.

The 2007 champ (Forest Oaks CC) swallowed a double bogey-5 at the seventh but otherwise was flawless, circling seven birdies on his other 17 holes. Six of those were birdie-3s, not unusual considering he's tied for the TOUR lead in par-4 scoring on the season (3.98). The Vanderbilt alum's split featured six conversions from inside of 12 feet with a long of 13'4" at the par-4 13th, adding a 29-incher for birdie-4 at the 15th. He posted 1.533 putts per GIR on 15 greens in regulation and is the current leader in the former with a cumulative 1.590.

Past champ Brandt Snedeker pieced together a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach halftime on 7-under 133, down one spot on the live leaderboard to T4.

The 2007 winner (Forest Oaks CC) began off No. 10 tee and improved to nine (of 14) fairways but digressed to 11 greens in regulation and 1.727 putts per GIR. He was a -1.573 in SG: Approach-the-Green contributing to -0.690 SG: Tee-to-Green, but salvaged the lap with 1.772 in SG: Putting. The 35-year-old exchanged bogey-5 at the 14th (failed scramble) with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 15th to turn even. He circled back-to-back birdies on Nos. 1 (16'8") and 2 (23'10), and added a 20-footer for birdie-2 at seven. Sneds circled the par-5 fifth, but missed eagle from 9'0", and bogeyed holes 6 and 9 on failed scrambles.

Brandt Snedeker torched Sedgefield Country Club en route to a 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round one of the Wyndham Championship.

Snedeker survived nine missed fairways to land 13 greens in regulation. Thanks to some clutch short-game play, he remained blemish-free until the closing par-4 18th where he found a greenside bunker and failed to get up-and-down. The Vandy product entered the week with three top 10s on his Sedgefield resume, and this goes in the books as his lowest opening round here since a 63 in 2010 (T8 finish that week). Snedeker has to be very pleased with his scoring output today despite not having his best iron game.

Overnight leader and past champ Brandt Snedeker back-pedaled with a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in today's final round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 10-under 278, down four spots into a four-way T5, two back of champion Jhonattan Vegas.

The 2013 champ began the finale with a one-shot lead over two golfers, including playing partner and Canadian amateur Jared du Toit, and FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson. This was his eighth 54-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR in his 262nd career start, dropping his record to 3-for-8. The RBC Ambassador co-led the 2016 Sony Open after 54 holes, eventually losing in a playoff. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 GIR, posting a disappointing 1.900 putts per GIR and -0.696 in SG: Putting. Sneds 3-putted the first from 37'7" for bogey-5, squared Nos. 7 and 12 on failed scrambles and missed three birdies from inside of nine feet. He converted three conventional circles and added a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 sixth. The Vanderbilt alum still co-led after turning 1-under, but couldn't keep pace, exchanging one bogey with one birdie the rest of the way. It's his sixth top 10 of the season in 21 starts.
