Snedeker healed, ready to return at Arnold Palmer Invitational

RSS

PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Brandt Snedeker plans to return from the disabled list at next week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, his management company confirmed to Golf Channel on Wednesday.

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.

Snedeker may add the Shell Houston Open to his schedule to prepare for The Masters and plans to take a scouting trip to Augusta National later this month.

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.
