GREENSBORO, N.C. – This is a busy time on the PGA Tour schedule, but right now no one is working harder than Brandt Snedeker.
Thanks to a flurry of high-profile events and a pair of sponsorship deals, Snedeker is teeing it up in his fifth straight event this week at the Wyndham Championship, a streak that could reach nine tournaments in a row should he qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship.
Midway through his marathon stretch, though, Snedeker doesn’t appear any worse for wear.
“I feel great,” said Snedeker, who is currently No. 69 in the FedEx Cup standings. “Body feels good and golf game feels better, so I’m excited about the next hopefully five weeks and what it holds.”
Snedeker has endorsement deals with RBC and Wyndham Worldwide, so while many players took the week off following the Open Championship, Snedeker jetted to Montreal to play in the RBC Canadian Open, where he tied for 25th. He’s also in the field this week in Greensboro, site of his first PGA Tour win in 2007.
Snedeker went through a similar stretch last year, playing seven weeks in a row from the Open Championship to the Deutsche Bank Championship. He planned his 2014 schedule anticipating a hectic summer, and coming off a pair of top-15 finishes at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship, he feels he’s peaking at the right time.
“I knew this was going to happen for the last year,” he said. “I’ve budgeted my time accordingly, taken some time off when I needed to, and I feel great.”
