Brandt Snedeker hardly has a hard time shooting three under on a regular basis on the PGA tour. But numbers aren’t everything, as seen with the three under round put up by Snedeker today. He described it as a round that would be hard to recreate, as well as one of his best rounds ever. The catch? Conditions at Torrey Pines San Diego were deemed “unplayable” for the third time in the final round Sunday shortly after Snedeker and many others finished. The Course which holds holes along the Pacific boasted 25mph winds today along with gusts around 40 mph.
To put things in perspective, of the 23 players that finished their round, only one person shot par or better. That just happened to be Snedeker today, fighting through the wind to not only avoid bogeys but also manage a few birdies. “I don’t know how I did it” said Snedeker after his round. He hasn’t won the tournament yet though; the final group of today of Jimmy Walker, KJ Choi and Brown weren’t able to finish. Walker sits atop the leaderboard, with Choi sitting at six under tied with Snedeker.
Brown has been impressive as well with 17 birdies on the weekend, but hasn’t been able to keep the bogeys at bay. There is still a lot of golf to be played, so we will see if Snedeker’s impressive performance today will pay off, or if one of the players in the remaining field can take advantage Monday. The winner, to be determined tomorrow will collect a 6,500,000 dollar purse.
