Brandt Snedeker is back this week at The RSM Classic, returning after a three-year recess from Sea Island Resort.
Snedeker finished T32 in his one and only appearance at this venue. It took him a round to get acquainted as he started off with a 1-over 71 before polishing off three straight under-par rounds. The Vanderbilt product is 1-for-2 to start the new season, posting a top 20 in the Open. Snedeker is always a threat to win, so gamers should give him a hard look this week. Nov 17 - 9:49 AM

Brandt Snedeker crafted a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Open to conclude his second appearance at 10-under 278, currently T18 with play still in progress.

There hasn't been many red numbers for Snedeker recently, posting just five over his past 18 rounds heading into the week. That would be 5-of-19 after opening his second in 1-over 73. However, he rebounded with three straight rounds in the red, closing in 69-69 and today's 67. Sneds began the day at 5-under (T44) and a distant nine back of 54-hole leader Brendan Steele. He circled four on his opening nine all from inside nine feet, including a kick-in from 14 inches at the par-4 first and back-to-backs at Nos. 5 and 6. The 34-year-old's most memorable birdie of the day came from 31 feet at the par-3 11th and added one more for good measure from 17'6" at the par-5 16th. His lone bogey came at the par-4 13th after missing the green, one of eight missed surfaces on the round.

Brandt Snedeker settled for a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in today's second round of the TOUR Championship and posted even-par 140 at the halfway point, six strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He went just 3-for-7 in scrambling with four bogey-5s at East Lake today. Snedeker picked off one birdie on each nine, including a conversion from 19'4" at the par-4 fourth hole, to help ease the sting, but it's obviously not the direction that will provide any value as he pursues his second victory in this tournament (2012). Then again, that win is his only top 15 in four previous appearances, so he's currently on pace to log his second-best finish.

Brandt Snedeker carded a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the TOUR Championship.

Sneds has been out of form for weeks, so it's not too hard to believe that today's aggregate equals his lowest of the FedExCup Playoffs (third round, Deutsche Bank). He hit 12 greens in regulation at East Lake today and swallowed three bogeys, including a long-range three-putt at the par-3 11th hole. He countered with five birdies, including conversions from 10 feet and 23'10" at the par-4 seventh and 14th holes, respectively. At the time he signed his card, the 34-year-old held a share of the clubhouse lead, but that has since gone by the boards.

Thanks to eight top 10s, including a win at Pebble Beach in mid-February, Brandt Snedeker finds himself on the tee sheet for the fifth time at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

But make no mistake, the 2012 FedExCup champion doesn't come a-galloping into town. He's 23rd in the FedExCup standings despite starting the Playoffs ranked 13th. In six starts since acknowledging that he's nursing a sore left hip that prevented a start at Glen Abbey where he won two years ago, Snedeker has only one top-30 finish. Worse yet, he's signed for only two red numbers in his last 11 rounds. Sure, there's no cut this week, but he's offered no reason to invest in any format.

Brandt Snedeker settled for a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to post 12-under 198, three adrift of 54-hole clubhouse leader Jason Gore.

It's always tough to chase a career low, but Snedeker was able to put together a four-birdie effort to overshadow a lone bogey to stay in contention. The 2007 champ began the day at 9-under (T5) and two back of 36-hole, co-leaders Tiger Woods and Tom Hoge. He hit but six (of 14) fairways but peppered 16 greens in regulation for a second consecutive round. After an astounding 5.066 mark in strokes gained: putting in yesterday's loop, Sneds coughed-up a -0.322 in today's round, his second negative performance with the flat stick (-0.918/round one). His split today consisted of three from inside six feet with a long of 19'9" coming at the par-3 seventh. After making the turn in 3-under, the 34-year-old exchanged one birdie with one bogey the rest of the way. He had an eight-footer at the last to add another for the good, but missed left.

Brandt Snedeker blistered Sedgefield Country Club for nine birdies en route to a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-31=61 in today's second round of the Wyndham Championship.

What a difference a day makes. After a pedestrian, even-par 70 in the opening round during which he hit only 11 greens in regulation and canceled two birdies with two bogeys, Snedeker hit 16 GIR today and walked off with a birdie from 52'5" at the par-4 ninth. When he signed his card, his aggregate matched the course record; he's the fifth to achieve it. It's also the third time he's carded a career-low 61. Three of his other birdie found the target form outside 10 feet, including a conversion from 21'10" at the par-3 16th. He went 16-for-16 from inside 19 feet on the round and boasted a strokes gained: putting clip of 4.887 at last check. At 9-under 131, he's just one swing back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Brandt Snedeker signed for an even-par 36-34=70 following his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Given that he's been out with a sore left hip since missing the cut at The Open Championship and the severity of the test at Firestone Country Club, gamers (and Snedeker) will accept this score, especially since he hit only eight greens in regulation. Sneds squared five bogeys, but he compensated with as many birdies, including a pair from just outside 28 feet at the fourth and fifth holes. He also holed out for birdie from the rough six yards away at the par-4 14th. He's just two shots off the clubhouse lead. So, it's business as usual once again for 34-year-old.

Brandt Snedeker is committed to this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Snedeker took the last two weeks off to give his left hip time to recovery from an injury suffered during the U.S. Open. If he's able to give it a go at Firestone, he'll try to improve on a personal-best T12 in his fifth appearance last year. Meanwhile, in an article at on July 31, Chris Wood was quoted as saying that he learned of Sneds' discomfort while unsuccessfully waiting on the Wednesday of The Open Championship for a spot as the first alternate. "As soon as I landed on Wednesday the courtesy car driver was telling me Brandt Snedeker could hardly walk after having an injection in his hip," Wood said. It's always frustrating when news like this is revealed way after the fact, but we do what we can in real time.

Brandt Snedeker has decided not to play this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Snedeker is a headliner on Team RBC. He's also the most recent champion at Glen Abbey Golf Club (2013), so today's decision is a surprise. He missed the cut at St. Andrews by two shots but sits ninth in the FedExCup standings. Sneds is always one of the busiest at this time of year what with his association with RBC and the fact that he's a regular at Firestone and Sedgefield. UPDATE: Snedeker revealed on Twitter why he's not playing. "Very disappointed to not play @RBCCanadianOpen this week, but after flying to Colorado to see my Dr, I was advised my left hip needs rehab ... And rest to heal. I tweaked it at the U.S. Open, but luckily there is no structural damage. We are confident this will get me back to 100% ... I am so lucky to have sponsors that support me and my career 100%. I will miss Glen Abbey and all the great fans in Canada.."

Brandt Snedeker turned in a pair of 1-over-par 73s at The 144th Open Championship and missed the cut by two strokes.

The second round concluded, mercifully, 38 hours and 46 minutes after it began. Eighty golfers survived the cut; all will play the final two rounds. Snedeker connected for five birdies during his two loops of St. Andrews, but he also squared five bogeys and a double bogey-6 at the 17th hole in the second round proved the ultimate difference. The good news is that, since he won't be in Scotland through Monday for The Open, he won't be pressured to get to Glen Abbey for next week's RBC Canadian Open where he won in 2013. Other notables that missed the cut include: 145--Kevin Kisner; Shane Lowry; Victor Dubuisson ... 146--Russell Knox ... 147--Bubba Watson; J.B. Holmes; Danny Lee; Ian Poulter; Keegan Bradley; Ryan Moore ... 148--Miguel Angel Jiménez ... 149--Bill Haas; Thomas Bjørn ... 150--Charley Hoffman ... 151--Tiger Woods ... 154--Nick Faldo ... 156--Tom Watson.

Brandt Snedeker back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in today's final round of the Travelers Championship and his 10-under 270 total was good for a five-way tie for 10th place.

Snedeker, playing in the penultimate group, began his final frame at 11-under (T4) and three strokes back. He struggled with his game all day, clocking in at -0.786 strokes gained: tee-to-green and -0.700 strokes gained: putting. His 'only' two birdies came at the 'only' two par 5s at TPC River Highlands, squaring bogey at the par-3 fourth and swallowing a devastating double bogey-6 on the 71st hole of the tournament. The 34-year-old hit only 10 greens in regulation on Sunday and the 17th wasn't one of them, dropping his approach (from the fairway, 150 yards out) woefully short and into the water. His consolation is his fourth consecutive top 10 (T2-T6-8-T10) and eighth of the season (19 starts). He also nips his T11-finish at the 2014 Travelers for career-best in five total appearances.

Brandt Snedeker got it going in the third round of the Travelers Championship to the tune of a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63, currently tied low round of the day with Patrick Rodgers.

Snedeker, who bogeyed his last two holes in round two on Friday, began the day at 4-under (T34) and seven shots off the pace of 36-hole leader Bubba Watson. As Watson was beginning his third round (with pars at Nos. 1 and 2), Snedeker was closing out his, missing from 10'10" on the last, which would have been his eighth birdie on the day. Still, Sneds penciled in seven par breakers on the card, including a 32'10" roll on the par-4 fourth for his longest conversion on the day. The 34-year-old's personal-best of T11 (in four Travelers appearances) came in last year's edition, highlighted by a final-round 64. More than likely, he'll need something similar on Sunday this year to contend for the title, but at the moment, he's the 54-hole clubhouse leader at 11-under 199.
Jun 27 - 2:42 PM

Brandt Snedeker polished off his 115th U.S. Open with a 2-under-par 32-36=68 for a four-day total of 1-under 279, currently T7 on the live leaderboard.

Snedeker began his final frame at 1-over (T9) and five off the pace of the four, 54-hole co-leaders. He entered the week on the heels of consecutive top-10 finishes, including runner-up at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Nothing changed as Sneds, who owns three top 10s in eight previous championship starts, including T8 in 2010, took a serious peek at the top of the board, turning in 3-under 32. His outward half featuring four consecutive circles on Nos. 6-9, pushing him to the first page of the leaderboard at 2-under total. The 34-year-old hung tough with a 10' par putt on the tenth, but started his fade with his second bogey of the day at No. 11. A three-putt par, albeit it from 84' on the drivable par-4 12th, was followed by a double bogey-6 at No. 14. He steadied himself enough to add circles on 16 and 18. Snedeker landed 13 greens in regulation today and navigated Chambers Bay's sketchy greens with a minimal 29 putts.

Brandt Snedeker tacked on an even-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the 115th U.S. Open and settles in at 1-over 211 after 54 holes.

Snedeker began the festivities at 1-over (T21) and six shots off the pace of the 36-hole leaders. He exchanged two birdies with two bogeys, striping 10 (of 14) fairways and hitting 11 greens in regulation. The 34-year-old's split included a ten-footer at the par-4 seventh and an improbable 29-footer at the par-5 eighth, a culmination of a two-putt birdie from 123 feet. He had a chance for a sub-par round but missed from 8' at the last. With 18 to play, Snedeker currently sits T12, two off the clubhouse lead and six back of the leaders on the course.
