We’ve heard some good reclamation stories in our time on Tour, but Brandt Snedeker has covered new ground with his rise from a prolonged slump.
The former Rookie of the Year had struggled mightily this season, posting a year’s-best T-17 at Bay Hill in March, until Brendon de Jonge talked him into trying a laser that attaches to the shaft of his putter and helps keep the stroke on the proper line.
It was about the same time, at the AT&T National at Congressional, that Snedeker also switched to a new set of Bridgestone irons that featured conforming grooves for 2010’s impending rules change.
The combination of the two has resulted in four top-5 finishes in his last seven starts and a spot in at least the first three playoff events. Not bad for a guy who was worried about keeping his Tour just a few weeks back.
