Snedekers familiar crown


HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Brandt Snedeker’s overtime victory at the Heritage on Sunday extended one St. Simon Island, Ga., tradition. Clients of Crown Sports Management, which represents Snedeker and is based out of the coastal community, have now won eight Tartan jackets.

Davis Love III won his first Heritage in 1987 and the last of five in 2003, while Boo Weekley won back-to-back titles at Harbour Town (2007 and 2008).

“Maybe we should look into sponsoring the Heritage,” joked Mac Barnhardt, chief executive officer of Crown Sports, late Sunday.

Snedeker also continued another tradition, celebrating his victory at St. Simons staple Bubba Garcia’s restaurant, which was closed for Easter Sunday but adjusted the schedule to accommodate the island’s newest champion.
