Brandt Snedeker flew from Florida to Indonesia via New York and Hong Kong to play the Indonesian Masters, seeking to move into the world's top 50 before the end of the year, but his endeavour came to nothing when forced to withdraw at Royale Jakarta GC.
It was a huge effort by the 37-year-old, seeking to guarantee his invitation to the 2018 Masters, but perhaps too much. TV commentator Richard Kaufman explained on Twitter that he had retired on Friday: "Suffering from heat exhaustion, he has walked in after 11 holes of his 2nd round #IndonesianMasters2017. He was 2 under par at the time, right on the cut line." Dec 15 - 4:49 AM

Brandt Snedeker kept his foot on the gas in round two of The RSM Classic, posting a 5-under-par 34-33=67 while competing at Sea Island Golf Club's Plantation Course, climbing to 8-under 134 ahead of his third-round tee time.

Snedeker is making his first start in over 20 weeks, due to a sternum injury. He's made swing and diet changes to help with the injury and so far the changes are looking good. Most impressive is the lack of rust in his short game as he landed just 12 greens in regulation today but managed to swallow just one bogey. After the round Snedeker reported no pain and is looking forward to competing again on the weekend. Gamers who took a chance following the long layoff are getting rewarded through two rounds at Sea Island. In three previous RSM appearances his best finish is a T32 (2011) meaning he is currently on pace to set a new personal best here on St. Simons.

Brandt Snedeker has been sidelined for 20 weeks due to a sternum joint injury but he's set to return this week at The RSM Classic.

Snedeker has a long history of his rib/sternum concerns, citing his low bone turnover issue back in 2013 and now this sternum joint issue. He was forced to hang up the clubs for an extended period of time after the Travelers Championship in June, so a little bit of rust is expected. On top of that, he's used his recent time off to rework his swing to hopefully avoid this issue again. On the bright side, he's very familiar with this week's venue, previously residing in the Sea Island area and making three previous appearances at this event. With the extended time off and recent swing changes, there are plenty of question marks this week. Gamers looking to play it safe should take the wait-and-see approach before re-investing.

Brandt Snedeker has announced his intentions to put away the sticks indefinitely due to a sternum joint (rib) injury that just isn't healing. UPDATE: Snedeker is in the published field at The RSM Classic, scheduled for Nov. 16-19.

Snedeker has posted a trail of WDs recently due to the rib injury that flared up just before The Open. There was hope that more than a month of rest would help him gear up for a run in the FedExCup Playoffs. Instead, Snedeker provided an update via Twitter saying, "I have not progressed in my rehab like we would have hoped and therefore will be shutting it down for an indefinite period of time." This is a very serious issue considering the announcement he made back in 2013 about his ribs having low bone turnover, forcing him to take medication for the problem. Season-long gamers can cut ties with the Vandy product and wish him a speedy recovery (hopefully in early 2018).

Brandt Snedeker continues his pre-tournament withdraw streak as he backs out of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Snedeker has been battling a rib injury since The Open, which he was also forced to withdraw from. The early-week WDs are likely due to Snedeker committing to these events months in advance, as opposed to him thinking he's close to playing and then changing his mind. That being said, Snedeker has rested for nearly two months now, and could be approaching his return. Snedeker may have a bit of rust to shake off once he returns. Currently ranked 57th in the FedExCup race, he is already locked into the first few events of the Playoffs, if his ribs are up for the task.
Aug 14 - 11:37 AM

Brandt Snedeker has withdrawn from the 99th PGA Championship, continuing to rest his ailing rib injury. As the first alternate, Chris Kirk will take his spot in the field.

Snedeker started the WD train back at The Open and has since backed out of the RBC Canadian Open and also the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. His ailment deals with inflamed cartilage between his sternum and rib cage. Snedeker is obviously missing some pretty big events so this is a serious injury. At the same time he has his place in the FedExCup Playoffs locked up (currently 55th in the standings) so he can afford to rest before attempting to make a big push in the Playoffs.
Aug 7 - 6:19 PM

Brandt Snedeker will continue to rest his ailing ribs, taking a pass on this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.

Snedeker has now withdrawn from three straight events, all pretty big in their own right (RBC Canadian Open meaning more to him since he is a part of Team RBC). The 36-year-old is not rushing his way back onto the course, a good move for his long-term output. Fantasy owners will be disappointed for another week, but there is certainly a possibility he will be good to go for the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.

Brandt Snedeker has backed out of the field for this week's RBC Canadian Open, giving a spot to first alternate Sam Saunders.

Snedeker provided a message to fans last week before withdrawing from The 146th Open. He cited a rib injury that popped up and didn't improve like he would have hoped. He did not provide another lengthy explanation this week, but gamers can put two and two together. First a hand injury and now the ribs are acting up(which he's suffered from in the past), makes it easy to avoid Snedeker for the foreseeable future.
Jul 24 - 3:58 PM

Prior to the start of the event, Brandt Snedeker has withdrawn from The 146th Open, citing a rib issue. James Hahn will replace him in the field in what will be his third Open Championship appearance.

Snedeker alerted his followers via Twitter saying, "I had a rib issue pop up last week and it didn't respond to treatment as I had hoped." He would go on to praise Royal Birkdale, but will head back to the States to rest now. Snedeker suffered a hand injury just ahead of the Masters so his luck has not been the greatest this year when it comes to major prep. There is no timetable for his return, but if he made the trip all the way to England, his health must have been close to competition level.

World No. 32 Brandt Snedeker twirled a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 7-under 273, up 42 places on the live leaderboard to T10 and tying the low round in the clubhouse with Rory McIlroy and Kevin Streelman. UPDATE: With play completed, Snedeker finished T14 and his 64 remained tied for the low round of the day.

This was the 36-year-old's 15th start of the season, eighth top 25 and possibly a fifth top 10, which would be his second straight (T9, U.S. Open). It was his sixth Travelers, fourth top 25 and potentially a second top 10, right on his best of T10 on last visit in 2015. After opening in 70-67-72, the Vanderbilt alum began T52 on 1-under, five shy of the overnight top 10. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.385 strokes tee-to-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 7,042. Snedeker was bogey-free 7-under thru 15 holes, circling Nos. 1, 5, 7 and 12-15 before squaring lone bogey-4 at 16. He posted 1.545 putts per GIR and 1.252 SG: Putting, currently 63rd (of 74) in SGP with a cumulative -2.129.

World No. 38 Brandt Snedeker carved out a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the 117th U.S. Open to wrap on 8-under 280, up one spot to T9 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Snedeker finished T9, eight in arrears of champion Brooks Koepka.

This was the 36-year-old's 11th U.S. Open with four previous top 10s, including solo 8th in 2015 (Chambers Bay) and T8 in 2010 (Pebble Beach). It was his 39th overall major championship appearance and will be a 20th top 25 and possibly ninth top 10. After opening in 70-69-70, the Vanderbilt alum began T10 on 7-under, five short of 54-hole leader Brian Harman. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, slightly outpacing four bogeys with five birdies, though walking off with a disappointing bogey-6, missing a par-saver from 4'1". For the week, Snedeker tallied 21 birdies versus 13 bogeys, and is currently No. 2 in SG: Putting with a cumulative 9.918. This will be his seventh top 25 of the season in 14 starts and possibly a fourth top 10, first since T7 at the WGC-Mexico.

Brandt Snedeker pieced together a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his third round at the U.S. Open, arriving at 7-under 209 through 54 holes and four shots behind clubhouse leader Justin Thomas.

That's currently good enough for T11 on the live leaderboard at Erin Hills although the American would have walked off the course feeling frustrated after flying the green with his third to 18 and suffering a bogey-6 instead of the birdie he wanted. Snedeker had a slow start, playing his first eight holes in 1-over. The most noticeable thing about his card today was the trio of deuces. The first came at the 9th from 10'8" before he holed from 19'4" at 13 and 15'2" at 16. A kick-in birdie at 15 helped form a run of three birdies in four holes from 13 to 16 before he suffered that sting in the tail. Snedeker was mostly superb from tee to green, splitting 13 (of 14) fairways, hitting 16 greens in regulation but needing 31 putts.
Jun 17 - 6:52 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 38 Brandt Snedeker authored a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the second round of the 117th U.S. Open for a two-day total of 5-under 139, up 10 spots to T8, two adrift of 36-hole leaders Paul Casey, Brian Harman, Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka.

This is the 36-year-old's 12th U.S. Open with seven previous top 25s, four top 10s and a best of solo 8th in 2015 and T8 in 2010. It's his 39th overall major appearance with a best of T3 two times (2012, Open Championship; 2008 Masters). The Vanderbilt alum kicked off with a seven-birdie five-bogey 70 on 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. On Day 2, he squared a pair of bogey-5s at 10 and 3, camouflaged by five birdies at 12, 14, 17, 4 and 6, all five from between 10 and 43 feet, with a long of 42'12" at the par-3 sixth that completed his scoring. Snedeker found 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.692 putts per GIR, 4.044 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts.

Brandt Snedeker has withdrawn from next week's PLAYERS at TPC Sawgrass, opting to rest his ailing wrist. UPDATE: Snedeker returned at the AT&T Byron Nelson and posted a 2-over 72 in his opening round.

Snedeker injured his wrist during the 81st Masters, but was still able to tee it up the following week and grab a T11 at the Valero Texas Open. The injury was described as tenosynivitis which is inflammation of a tendon. Rex Hoggard of Golf Channel reported that Snedeker was considering surgery but chose rest, instead. Perhaps aiding in that decision was the fact that Snedeker has missed the cut in six of his nine PLAYERS appearances. His timetable for return is the AT&T Byron Nelson in two weeks, but gamers should keep their eyes peeled for any updates.
May 4 - 8:07 AM

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.
