Joined the list of players who have broken 60 on the PGA Tour at the 2018 Wyndham Championship, even starting his opening round with a bogey before going on to shoot 59 and take his ninth title on the circuit.
In 2012, he equalled the then major championship record when he began The Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes 66-64. Snedeker finished joint third with Tiger Woods on that occasion, but two months later he was able to celebrate an $11million double of Tour Championship and season-ending FedEx Cup victories.
He made his Ryder Cup debut a week later and after reaching fourth in the world helped America retain the Presidents Cup. Snedeker then won all his three games in America’s 2016 triumph over Europe.
Missed the 2017 Open with a rib injury and was not part of the 2019 field until a fortnight prior to the event when he finished joint third in A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier.
His place at Royal St George’s, where he finished just inside the top 20, was secure once he qualified for the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship the previous August.
His first major appearance came as an amateur at the 2004 Masters after he had won the US Public Links Championship and he was the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2007.
