Can Sneds Get a Win This Time?

It just seems appropriate. After yesterday's post looking at Brandt Snedeker's swing, what does he do but jump right back into the fray. In his last 4 tournaments, Sneds has posted a third and 2 runner-ups.

Sneds at AT&T

After 2 rounds at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am -- which is a mouthful all by itself -- he's tied for the lead at -8. As an article at PGATOUR.com said (it's also the source of the photo), he could have a good chance this week since those last 2 runner-ups have been behind Tiger and Phil.

This week Tiger's not around and Phil's at -2, 6 shots back.

In addition, Sneds is playing with amateur Toby Wilt, an investor with Capstar Bank who lives in Nashville TN (where Brandt also lives). The team is only 3 shots off the lead of the pro-am teams, so Sneds is looking to win twice at Pebble.

I love Brandt's answer when he was asked what his goal is this week:
"Not do anything stupid," he said. "Unfortunately, I don't do it very often."
Since he's leading the FedExCup points race so far, I'd have to disagree with him. He's not making many mistakes this year, and I don't expect him to start now. I'm looking for his first win of 2013 to come Sunday night.

  1. First let me say I am posting this after I watched the final round.

    I think Brandt is now ready to challenge Tiger and Rory for the #1 spot. I don't see a weakness in his game, and he seems to be gaining more confidence with each passing week.

  2. Hard to believe he's the same guy who struggled to finish events a few seasons ago, isn't it?
