Doug Ferguson tells us in his game story that Brandt Snedeker's five starts this year include a win, two second-place finishes and a third. Now Snedeker is off to Maui for a vacation.

The PGA Tour's "With This Win" list of impressive facts and figures surrounding Snedeker's win. This one especially:
Is 33/37 for subpar rounds in official TOUR events, dating to the start of the Wyndham Championship in August of last year. The week before the Wyndham Championship, missed the cut at the PGA Championship.
Snedeker arrived in Pebble Beach sixth in the World Ranking and was expected to move to fourth with his victory. CBS' Jim Nantz noted that since the start of the 2011 season, Snedeker is tied with Woods in PGA Tour victories with four, second only to Rory McIlroy's five wins.
"To think what's happened the last four months has been pretty crazy," Snedeker said. "Finishing a tournament like this off with the lead gives me a ton of confidence going into the Masters, the U.S. Open, all the great venues we have. That's next on the list. I've won five times out here now. The important thing now is to win majors."
Golf.com pieces together Snedeker's retro bag which includes a THREE-year old driver. He's anti-capitalism! Mike Stachura explained the story behind that driver last fall.
Sean Martin includes five things from the week at Pebble, including a note on Patrick Cantlay's top 10 not getting him in the field at Riviera (but it doesn't matter...he was already in on an exemption).
