Snedeker joins elite club after carding 59 in Wyndham Championship

T.J. Vogel

All the above mentioned will be heading to the FedEx Cup playoffs, each with their owns hopes and expectations, but first comes the Wyndham. That was the only blemish on his scorecard at Sedgefield Country Club as he added 10 birdies and an eagle the rest of the way.

"My results, I think, have been a combination of what Brad has laid out for me as well as the hard work I've been putting in", Baddeley says of Malone, who he has worked with for nearly two years. Stats wise, there's noone better in the field this week; Stenson ranks 1st for GIR, 2nd for Driving Accuracy, 3rd SG: Approach the green, 5th SG: Tee to green and 10th for scoring average.

After the Pro-Am, Wyndham officials presented Harvick a check for $10,000 to go towards his foundation.

Brandt Snedeker predicted low scores at the Wyndham Championship - but not this low.

Meanwhile, Players Champion Webb Simpson enters as the bookies favourites thanks to a successful history in Greensboro, but there are plenty of others flying under the radar this week who we think have a good shot at gaining their first PGA Tour victories (Niemnann, Schniederjans and Varner III). But he missed a 3-foot birdie putt on No. 8 that would have made a 58 possible.

Snedeker broke Si Woo Kim's 2-year-old Wyndham record of 60 and had the best opening round in this event's history.

The top 125 qualify for The Northern Trust next week in Paramus, New Jersey, and also will be fully exempt on the tour next year, if they aren't already.

"It's very rare out here when you have something you're trying to do and you step up with this pressure and all the stuff on you and you do it", he said. Arjun Atwal had a 61 in 2010. "It's still alright, and I still feel good about things", said Conners.

It's been a somewhat frustrating, turbulent year for Snedeker. Webb finished third in this tournament a year ago and has five top-10 finishes in the Wyndham Championship since 2010.

Both men are likely to need a top-five finish to survive, although Lowry was seventh in the same event past year and has been a different player since splitting from his long-time caddie Dermot Byrne.

Four consecutive birdies from his fourth hole got the ball rolling, before he plundered his inward half, roaring home in 27 strokes with six birdies and an eagle.

"Could have been even more special", he said, "but happy with the way everything turned out". "It's nice to see some of these guys from my hometown play great", Simpson said. "Like, let's try and close that gap a little bit".
