Sneds To Play The Rest Of The Way
By Torleif Sorenson on 7/31/13
Following a tie for 11th at the Open Championship, Brandt Snedeker won the Canadian Open on Sunday. After two tournaments across five time zones, logic dictates that the man from Tennessee would want to take time off — especially since he is dealing with an ongoing rib injury. But as reported by Golf Channel's Jason Sobel, Snedeker plans to play every PGA Tour event the rest of the season.
"If the PGA Tour has a tournament, I'm going to play the rest of the year.So that means that his next eight weeks could look like this:
Thankfully, the PGA Tour programmed an off-week between the Deutsche Bank and the BMW Championship (the former Western Open), which will be Sept 12-15 at Conway Farms GC outside Chicago. If he qualifies for the Tour Championship, he will be at East Lake in Atlanta, September 19-22.
Assuming that Snedeker is still healthy, he should qualify for the United States team at the Presidents Cup, October 3-6 at Jack Nicklaus's Muirfield Village outside Columbus. As of today, Snedeker is second on the points list, behind only Tiger Woods and ahead of Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Bill Haas, and Hunter Mahan.
Eight straight tournaments of playing with a known and lingering injury? Who does Snedeker think he is — Patrice Bergeron?

He reminds me of Eddie Haskell on "Leave it to Beaver"...."Hello Mrs. Cleaver, you certainly are looking lovely today".
Weird that he's ahead of Phil on the Pres. Cup points list...
