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.
