Snedeker Wins ProAmPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) -
Brandt Snedeker didn't have to take a back seat to anyone at Pebble Beach.
A runner-up to Tiger Woods and Phil
Mickelson the last two weeks, Snedeker finished off a command performance
Sunday with a 7-under 65 for a two-shot victory over Chris Kirk in the Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am. Snedeker tapped
in for par on the 18th hole to finish at 19-under 267, setting the tournament
record at Pebble Beach.
In five starts this year, Snedeker already
has a win, two second-place finishes and a third. The win takes him to a
career-best No. 4 in the world.
Kirk closed with a 64, though he never got
closer than two shots. James Hahn, tied with Snedeker to start the final round,
had a 68 and tied for third.
