Snedeker raring to go
After five weeks on the sidelines due to injury, Brandt Snedeker is looking forward to getting out on course during the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Snedeker began 2013 in impressive fashion, recording three top-three finishes in his first four tournaments before claiming his first win of the season at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in just his fifth start.
However, having climbed to a career-high ranking of fourth, the American was then forced to pull out of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship the following week due to a rib injury and has not played since.
Having returned to full fitness, the 32-year-old is eager to get back into the swing of things at Bay Hill.
“I feel completely healthy,” he said. “I’m going to have a little soreness and that is to be expected, but no concern whatsoever.
“This is an injury you don’t want to try to play through because it can get worse. The Masters is something that you don’t want to miss due to an injury. I’m glad I’m back, but the Masters was a concern.
“Sometimes an injury can be a good thing. I got time to rest and sit at home and kind of re-evaluate where my year is. As great as the start of the year was that was a long time ago. We’ve got to get refocused and get back into it.”
Snedeker confirmed that he has added this month’s Shell Houston Open to his schedule in an attempt to ensure he is at his peak heading into the Masters.
“I wanted to make sure I was healthy enough to play the Masters 100 percent,” he explained. “I didn’t want to come back and be at 90 percent or whatever it may be.”
