PGA TOUR RBC Canadian Open

How Brandt Snedeker won the 2013 RBC Canadian Open

Brandt Snedeker (Golf Canada/ Bernard Brault)

Brandt Snedeker began the final round of the 2014 RBC Canadian Open with a one-stroke lead over David Lingmerth at 14-under-par. After making three birdies and two bogeys through the first 15 holes of the final round, he would go on to make birdie at the par-5 16th to reach 16-under par, a score that Dustin Johnson had previously reached before making a triple bogey at the par-4 17th to fall out of contention. Snedeker safely made par at the final two holes for his sixth career PGA Tour victory and his second of the 2013 season (AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am). His win moved him to third in the FedExCup standings, where he would finish the Regular Season before going on to finish 12th.
