Brandt Snedeker shoots 59 at Wyndham Championship, breaks hole in process

Brandt Snedeker shoots 59 at Wyndham Championship, breaks hole in process

He is now sitting at 131st place in the FedEx Cup standings and will have to play well this week to crack the top 120 before the playoffs start next Thursday.

Playoff hopefuls will take on Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. "I'm going to shoot 59'".

After the Pro-Am, Wyndham officials presented Harvick a check for $10,000 to go towards his foundation.

Snedeker claimed the Wyndham Championship title when it was last played at Forest Oaks in 2007, and has since had four top 10s at Sedgefield (including a T3 the last time he teed up in 2016).

Jim Furyk holds the record with a 58.

Duval enjoyed an incredible year in 1999, taking over from Tiger Woods as world No 1 while also firing a remarkable 59 on the final day to win his ninth PGA Tour title at PGA West. "So you know what you have to do when you step up on the first tee - put the ball in play and give yourself some opportunities". Arjun Atwal had a 61 in 2010.

"To roll that putt in was such a cool feeling", said Snedeker, whose 10 birdies, six pars and one eagle virtually erased any memory of an opening bogey at the 10th hole. "It's still alright, and I still feel good about things", said Conners. It was won in 2011 by Webb Simpson (another to return to the winner's circle in 2018), in 2012 by Sergio Garcia, in 2013 by Patrick Reed, in 2014 by Camillo Vegas, in 2015 by Davis Love III, in 2016 by Is Woo Kim and a year ago by Stenson. He ranks 11 in putting average, 21 in SG: Around the green and 25 on Tour for birdie average.

Berger led the field last week in strokes gained: approach en route to his T-12 finish at Bellerive.

Moore, who won here in 2009, made a move up the leaderboard in the afternoon with five birdies in a six-hole span on the front nine.

"It'll be a special end to the year and I'll have some fresh mojo for the beginning of the next wraparound season", Conners said. Oda, a second-year pro coming off a tie for third earlier this month in the Barracuda Championship, had three consecutive birdies on the back nine to pull even with Moore. "If you don't get excited for that, then you need to find another job".

A really interesting tournament here, the FedEx Cup has really given it an extra edge and for that reason I can see Sergio Garcia doing well, but I also believe Henrik Stenson needs to be watched - he loves this course. "Like, let's try and close that gap a little bit".
