Eric asked me who I thought was going to win because he thought he would put some money on someone. Without hesitation, I replied “Brandt Snedeker”.
Snedeker was brilliant on Saturday down the stretch. He finished up with three birdies in the last six holes in shooting a three-under 69. Snedker, who has won already this year at the historic AT& T Pebble Beach Pro-Am near San Francisco, will have to beat a two-time Major champion to prove my flawless accuracy.
That is because Angel Cabrera of Argentina is tied for the lead with Snedeker at -7. Others in contention for the first major championship of the season are a trio of Australians. Veteran Adam Scott is at -6, followed by Jason Day and Marc Leishman at -5. Matt Kuchar of the United States cannot be counted out as well at -4. Tiger Woods meanwhile is lurking at -3.
