Brandt Snedeker limps into the AT&T Byron Nelson this weekend looking to get untracked at Trinity Forest Golf Club.
Snedeker has missed the cut in back-to-back events for the first time since May 2016, so it doesn't happen too often. He is an even-keel player who doesn't make a lot of miscues, and he hasn't missed three straight cuts since April 2010. He'll be a popular contrarian play for DFS players, or at least he should be, because he will rebound. Snedeker remains accurate off the tee, he is in the top-10 in Sand Save Percentage and he is still a top-notch scrambler and above-average putter. May 15 - 10:49 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, past champ and World No. 78 Brandt Snedeker twirled a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the second round of the RBC Heritage for a 36-hole tally of 8-under 134, up 31 spots on the live leaderboard to T3, matching the low round of the week with two others and one swing shy of clubhouse leaders Si Woo Kim and Ian Poulter. UPDATE: With R2 play completed, Snedeker is T4, two back of leader Bryson DeChambeau, while Satoshi Kodaira had the low round with 63.

The RBC Ambassador is making his 13th appearance with four prior top 25s and one top 10, a playoff win in 2011, closing with 64. In 42 laps at Harbour Town GL, this is Vanderbilt alum's third 64 and is a new season low, brushing aside 67 five times, most recently in R1 at the Houston Open. In Houston, he followed that with 73-77 to miss the secondary 54-hole cut, and failed to qualify for the Masters for the first time since 2010. The 37-year-old mustered five (of 14) fairways but pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.431 strokes approaching-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 1, smothered by eight circles at 10, 15, 18, 2, 4-6 and 8, two from between 14 and 18 feet. He recorded 1.533 putts per GIR and 2.596 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

World No. 72 Brandt Snedeker carved out a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 4-over 148, up 14 spots on the day but missing the cut by three shots.

A total of 77 players (75 pros, two amateurs) from a field of 118 pros and two amateurs made the cut of 1-over 145. Snedeker, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, was highest-up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the exits. He outpaced three bogeys with four circles on Day 2 but couldn't overcome an opening 77, where he carded one birdie against three bogeys and a triple bogey-8. The 77 was just one shy of a season worst, which came last week at the Valspar out of the penultimate twosome with Tiger Woods on Sunday. Other notable early departures include: 146- Sam Saunders .. 147- Kiradech Aphibarnrat; Matthew Fitzpatrick; Scott Piercy; Patton Kizzire; Jason Kokrak .. 148- Charl Schwartzel .. 149- Cameron Smith .. 150- Louis Oosthuizen; Kevin Kisner.

World No. 74 Brandt Snedeker fashioned a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Valspar Championship for a 54-hole tally of 8-under 205, good for a three-way T2, one shy of leader Corey Conners.

The 37-year-old is chasing his ninth TOUR title in 290 events, first since the 2016 Farmers where he came from six back with 3-under 69 to win by one. After opening in 70-68, he began T2, two short of Conners. Playing out of the penultimate twosome with Tiger Woods (67), the Vanderbilt alum found seven (of 13) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.323 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.795 approaching-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 10, offset by five circles at 2, 5, 9, 14 and 16, three from between 10 and 15 feet, adding a 17-footer from the fringe at 16. The Nashville native and resident recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.743 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. He'll play out of the penultimate twosome again in Round 4 with Woods.

World No. 74 Brandt Snedeker tacked on a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the Valspar Championship to post 4-under 138, up six places on the live leaderboard to T2 and good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead with Paul Casey. UPDATE: With play completed, Snedeker is T2, two back of leader Corey Conners, and will play out of the penultimate twosome in Round 3 with Tiger Woods.

The 37-year-old hit eight (of 13) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.800 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.878 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 8, outpaced by four circles at 1, 5, 12 and 13. The Vanderbilt alum recorded 1.714 putts per GIR and 3.188 SG: Putting with 292 total putts. His birdie split featured three conversions from between 12 and 35 feet, including a long of 34'10" at the par-3 13th that completed his scoring.

Brandt Snedeker carved out a 1-under-par 36-34=70 during the opening round of the Valspar Championship, placing him in a share of eighth place, just three of the lead.

Making his return to Innisbrook Resort after a two-year absence, Snedeker opened on the back nine and scribbled nine pars over his first 11 holes, circling birdies on the other two holes. It was a bumpy ride from there (two birdies, three bogeys) but overall this round beat the field average by 2.865 strokes. The highlights of the round all came in the short-game department. First he sank a 22'1" birdie at the par-5 fifth and followed it up with a 46'1" hole out for birdie at the sixth hole. The latter was a big reason why the Vandy product walked off the course gaining 1.940 strokes around-the-green.

Brandt Snedeker rolls into the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week looking for another Top 5 finish at the event.

Snedeker posted a fourth-place finish last season at this event, his third Top 5 in five seasons. He won the event in 2013 and 2015. There is something about Pebble Beach that suits Snedeker's style. He isn't a masher off the tee, ranking just 153rd in Driving Distance, but he has outstanding finesse and is a wizard in the short game. His even-keel temperament, work out of the sand and putting ability makes him a threat any weekend, but especially so on the courses which aren't terribly lengthy.

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."

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.

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.

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.
