Snedeker Sidelined By "Sore Ribs" 

Now before you go wondering how someone can play like Brandt Snedeker has with "sore ribs" do remember that he has rib issues before, including playing with a cracked rib last year.

Rex Hoggard reports on Snedeker's WD from next week's WGC Match Play:

Snedeker’s Sea Island (Ga.)-based trainer Randy Myers told that he strained the rib during a practice round at the Humana Challenge and re-aggravated the injury on Thursday at Pebble Beach. Snedeker had an X-ray on Monday in California and is awaiting the results of that test. He plans to return to Nashville, Tenn., later this week to meet with his doctor, Dr. James Elrod.

“He felt like he was playing well enough after the Humana he wanted to keep playing,” Myers said. “His biggest concern is he worked so hard to become a No. 1 seed (for the Match Play) and he’s played well there, (but) this is just preventative.”

The reigning FedEx Cup champion could return in time for the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March.

Snedeker sustained a cracked rib at last year’s RBC Heritage and missed the better part of the next three months recovering.

Now everyone else on tour can let their sore backsides heal from the ***-whipping Snedeker has been handing out to them this year.

As he was walking up 18th at Pebble on Sunday, I noticed that he was talking to his caddie and it appeared from the gestures they were talking about his rib cage; almost like he hurt it on the last full shot. Sounds like it was hurting for much longer.

Brutal. That's a real momentum killer. Those kinds of injuries can linger and become chronic - hope that's not the case for Sneds.

A smidge of Turtle Shell Spray would clear this right up for Sneedecker (as he was called on ESPN radio all last week).
