A bit lost in all of the belly putter and Old Course news was a super press conference I was privileged to sit in on where Brandt Snedeker talked about life after winning the $10 million FedExCup. If you have a few minutes you'll get a kick out reading the transcript where he talks about the day the money arrived and how he has no plans to spend it other than on a new foundation.
Jill Painter did a nice job putting his story together, hitting on Snedeker's revelation that he's still driving his 2004 Chevrolet Denali, now missing a door handle after he broke it the other day.
And this will warm tournament directors' hearts:
He played in his first Ryder Cup, and the U.S. loss still tears at him. As does the fact he hasn't played the Shell Houston Open except twice, even though he earned his first sponsor's exemption there.
"I feel awful because (executive director) Steve Timms helped me out when I was an amateur or when I first turned pro," Snedeker said.
"I haven't been able to return the favor. I know I will because I still feel indebted to him."
