Snedeker has been recovering from a strained rib muscle since winning the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last month. The world No. 4 began hitting balls last week and plans to work with his swing coach, Todd Anderson, this week at Sea Island (Ga.) Resort.
According to his manager with Crown Sports, Snedeker – who moved into a new house outside Nashville, Tenn., last week – underwent a full physical at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and was cleared to play after a five-week break.
His caddie, Scott Vail, has already gotten back to work. Vail is working this week at the Tampa Bay Championship for Brendon De Jonge, whose regular caddie needed the week off.
