2013 was Brandt Snedeker’s year. He came out and played some great golf. Then he was side-lined with a nagging rib injury that kept him out of competition for more than a couple of weeks. Now Snedeker finds himself tied for the lead in the season’s first major, The Masters. Can he hold off a charging Tiger Woods? I think so and he can win the Masters if he sticks to his game plan. Snedeker was the best player on tour to start the 2013 PGA season. He was winning and he was coming in second place before he injured his ribs. There is no sign of the injury at Augusta. he played a great 3rd round and he put himself in position to win the tournament if he can hold off the rest of the field and manage to make a few birdies in his 4th and final round at Augusta. Snedeker played a bogey free round yesterday. He made 3 birdies to get to 7 under par and is tied for the lead going into the final round. If he can continue to play the kind of golf that he is capable of playing, he is going to be tough to beat. Snedeker has never won a Major, his best finish at Augusta was a tie for 3rd place in 2008. Last year he finished tied for 19th place. His time has come. He knows what he has to do today and if he wants to wear the green jacket, he has to play a mistake free round of golf. Snedeker is capable of winning the 2013 Masters. Now, he has to show the world he can do it…….

On Sunday, the only tears after the final round were from his 2-year-old daughter.
''I'm not as crushed as I was in 2008 because I know I'm going to be there again...
Brandt Snedeker has fallen short at yet another Masters tournament, done in by his poor putting on Sunday.
After struggling through the front nine Sunday, the third-round co-leader took himself out of contention with back-to-back bogeys on 10 and 11.
His 3-over 75 put him at 4-under for the tournament, five strokes behind Angel Cabrera and Adam Scott. That left Snedeker in a tie...
Brandt Snedeker will be looking for the ultimate redemption on Sunday at The Masters, and he will be doing so in this Peter Millar outfit.
Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera are tied for the lead after the third round of the Masters, a day that will remembered for Tiger Woods' penalty.
Woods is four shots back and still in contention despite being docked two strokes for an improper drop in the second round. He actually caught a bit of a break, because he could have been disqualified for an erroneous scorecard.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) Tiger Woods dropped two strokes at the Masters before he even hit a shot Saturday, and he still has a chance to wear another green jacket.
Woods shot a 2-under 70 in the third round at Augusta National, shaking off a two-stroke penalty assessed before he went out to the first tee. When he walked off the 18th green after sinking a testy par putt, he was four strokes...
