Brandt Snedeker rebounded from a 6-over-par 77 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage with a 7-under 33-31=64 in today's second round to post 1-under 141 and make the cut by one stroke.
Sneds passed the gut-check after missing the cut at last week's Masters. He found nine (of 14) fairways and went 6-for-6 in scrambling today while picking off seven birdies. Three of them ran 10-15 feet. At last check, Snedeker's strokes gained: putting read 3.749 for the day. Today's aggregate matches his season low at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in the opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am where he won by three strokes.

Brandt Snedeker looks to add some major championship hardware to his trophy case as he arrives this week at the 79th Masters.

Snedeker enjoys the confines of Augusta National Golf Club and it shows as it's historically been the major in which he most consistently performs. In seven trips, he's missed the cut just once, finishing inside the top 20 on four occasions. He was the 54-hole co-leader in 2013 before fading to to a T6. His form on the season is top notch as well, collecting seven top 20s in 11 starts, including a victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Gamers can proceed with confidence this week.

Brandt Snedeker lit up Bay Hill Club and Lodge to the tune of a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33 66 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Snedeker posts an early, but likely insignificant, clubhouse lead at 8-under 208. His round featured four birdies and an eagle, with the eagle falling from 15'11" on the par-5 16th. Three of his birdies fell from 11 feet or longer, with two of those outside of 20 feet, so the flat stick was clearly working. He gained just shy of three strokes with the putter at the time of his posting. He also split 13 of 14 fairways, which is accuracy we aren't used to seeing from Sneds.

Brandt Snedeker was the beneficiary of the break of the year en route to a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

It was one of those rounds that a casual fan would ignore for one highlight. It occurred at famous finisher at Bay Hill. After striping his drive 298 yards into the fairway, Snedeker had 163 yards to the hole. He hit it short. The ball fell to earth on a rock fronting the green. It bounded straight up and landed on another rock, which then propelled it its resting spot just five-and-a-half feet from the target. He'd settle for a two-putt par, but one must not get greedy after that fortune. (See the shot for yourself at the link below.) More importantly, it maintained momentum after birdies at 13, 16 and 17, the last of which courtesy of a zero-putt 11-yarder. He traded two birdies for one bogey coming home. Sneds' longest conventional conversion traveled 13'4" at the par-5 fourth. He went on to sign his card positioned just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Brandt Snedeker returns to Bay Hill Club and Lodge for this year's edition of the Arnold Palmer Invitational after tying for eighth last season.

The T8 was Snedeker's best result in eight tries, and one of four top-25 finishes. Since winning the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for the second time in his career, he has failed to crack the top 50 in his subsequent two full-field starts on the PGA TOUR. He did manage a T17 in the no-cut WGC-Cadillac Championship. Known more for his putting that ball-striking, this could be a challenging week for him following whispers of poor green conditions at Bay Hill.

Brandt Snedeker can't complain too much about a 2-over-par 34-39=73 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

He can't gripe about the score, that is. Although he split eight (of 14) fairways, Sneds landed only five greens in regulation. He converted on three of his chances, including a roll from 11'5" at the par-3 16th. That set helped offset five bogeys. That he played at all diminishes the concern raised on Wednesday when he withdrew from the pro-am with the flu.
Feb 19 - 8:12 PM

Brandt Snedeker withdrew from today's pro-am for the Northern Trust Open due to "flu-like symptoms," according to PGA TOUR Media on Twitter.

While he was quick to confirm that he was going to honor his commitment to the tournament after winning at Pebble Beach, an illness might serve as a tipping point to change his mind. Snedeker is scheduled to go off the first tee at 12:12 p.m. in Thursday's opening round, but gamers investing in the angle that he can now play freely are going to be tempted to lay off given today's news. The counterargument to that philosophy is that he played very well while chasing a berth into the Masters, so with that goal achieved, his motivation to keep the pedal down may have waned.

Brandt Snedeker put a bow on his week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 to post 22-under 265, good for a three-stroke victory.

Snedeker went 3-for-3 in scrambling in the finale and circled five birdies, including a pair from outside 10 feet. He missed only 13 greens in regulation all week and squared just one bogey, that a 5 on the third hole at Pebble Beach in the third round. Sneds totaled 23 birdies and broke his own tournament record (2013) by two strokes. After no better than a trio of T10s this season, he's back in the winner's circle for the first time since the 2013 RBC Canadian Open and seventh time in his career. The victory exempts him into the Masters and World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational. Snedeker is scheduled to compete in this week's Northern Trust Open, but don't hold your breath. While he hasn't played Riviera since 2012 and his short-term goal of qualifying for the field at Augusta National has been achieved, he told Golf Channel's Steve Burkowski after the tournament that he's going to honor his commitment at the NTO.

Brandt Snedeker lapped Pebble Beach Golf Links in 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and trails Jim Furyk by one at 17-under 198.

Snedeker began his day on the 10th hole at Pebble Beach, bagging three birdies without a bogey on his first nine holes. He added three more on the back, finally suffering his first bogey of the tournament on the par-4 third hole. Three of his six birdies dropped from between 20 and 30 feet. He is a past winner of this tournament, so expect him to draw on that in Sunday's finale.

Brandt Snedeker hit all 18 greens in regulation en route to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-35=67 at Spyglass Hill Golf Club in his second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Sneds poured in five birdies to total 12 on the week. He posted 12-under 131 to match Matt Jones atop the leaderboard through 36 holes. Snedeker missed only three GIR in his opener and led the field with 33 at last check. Gamers should be excited that he'll tackle the host course in Saturday's third round.
Feb 13 - 4:50 PM

Brandt Snedeker stapled a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-31=64 on the board at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The 2013 champ has been gradually improving for several months, but he's on the outside looking into an invitation to the Masters. Currently 63rd in the Official World Golf Ranking, he doesn't need to win to climb inside the top 50 by March 30 (when Augusta National will extend tee times to the top 50 in the OWGR), but a victory will make him automatically exempt. Sneds hit 15 greens and circled seven birdies today. He's just one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders. Spyglass Hill will host his second round.
Feb 12 - 5:57 PM

Brandt Snedeker spun a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and ends his week at 10-under 274.

Snedeker's final navigation of TPC Scottsdale features six birdies to just one bogey. In addition to holing out from a greenside bunker for a birdie on the par-4 10th, three of his other birdies fell from outside of 10 feet. That's good news for gamers considering inserting him into the lineup at next week's Farmers Insurance Open. He is a past champion and two-time runner-up at Torrey Pines.
Feb 1 - 4:22 PM

Brandt Snedeker will make his first start of the 2015 calendar year at this week's Humana Challenge.

Snedeker is no stranger to Humana as he owns three top 25s in six visits. He ranks 60th on the FedExCup leaderboard after just three starts, two of them resulting in top 10s. There may be a slight rust factor after resting for a few months but class is permanent and that makes Snedeker a top-tier pick this week.

Brandt Snedeker took home a trio of paychecks this fall, finishing the Fall Series a perfect 3-for-3.

Snedeker is looking to bounce back after an off-year that began in the wake of a knee injury. Two top 10s in his first three events is certainly a good start. Even in his slump, Sneds still missed just five cuts in 25 attempts. Class is permanent, which means gamers should look forward to a resurgence this season.

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.
