Snedeker returns to winning ways
Brandt Snedeker is back with a bang as he broke his own scoring record en route to his second AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am title in three years.
The 34-year-old American finished three-strokes clear of Nick Watney following the bogey-free round of five-under par he produced on Sunday.
Snedeker’s final round 67 saw him finish at 22 under and 265 for the tournament as he improved on his own 72-hole total from 2013 and setting the record for most under par.
“It was an emotional win for me today because it’s been a long time coming,” the seven time PGA Tour winner told espn.go.com.
“The last year and a half has not been up to my standard.”
Snedeker, who has taken a significant drop in the world rankings in recent times, also secured his place at the Masters and PGA Championship and most likely all the World Golf Championships.
“It’s nice to be back in those tournaments,” added Snedeker.
“I can set my schedule a little bit. And all the hard work I’ve done the last year is paying off now. I know this is a great week, but I look forward to parlaying this week into more weeks coming up and keep this momentum going.”
Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson, who was banned from the PGA Tour for six months last year following testing positive for cocaine, finished tied for fourth with Jason Day on 17 under.
