Snedeker holds on for second Wyndham title

Snedeker holds on for second Wyndham title

"Wanting so desperately to win this tournament, it was just a lot of emotion this week", he said. "So, yes, totally on your mind".

Snedeker, a former Vanderbilt golfer, won this tournament in 2007 as a rookie, but that was the previous year it was contested at Forest Oaks Country Club. That was Snedeker's first PGA Tour victory.

But it wasn't easy to follow a score like that.

When the tournament restarts, Snedeker - who opened with a 59 to become the first tour player this year and just the 10th ever to break 60 - will look to keep himself in position to contend for his ninth victory on tour and his first since the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open.

"You can't ignore it", he said.

"This is only my second year on tour and I'm still trying to learn from the best players".

He wrapped up that round with a one-stroke lead at 16 under before heading back onto the course. After that, he set Sedgefield's front nine on fire, carding a 27 over his final nine holes: six birdies and an eagle.

Flores got a bogey on the 418-yard par-4 first, getting on the green in 3 and two putting, moving Flores to 1 over for the round.

"Shooting 59 on Thursday, your expectations go through the roof", Snedeker said, also expressing pride that he could "cap it off the way we did today, to play pretty much a flawless round of golf".

"To see one finally go in was good, got some momentum going those last few holes". He has finished in the top 20 at this tournament twice since 2014, and after starting far off the bubble at No. 214 on the points list, could play his way into the playoffs this weekend. "When I knocked that (final) putt in, it was really special to know that I'm part of a small club on Tour". "It seems to be paying off". Simpson fired a career-best 62 on Sunday. He also shot 64s past year at the Travelers Championship and the RSM Classic.

"To do it here and shoot 59 on Thursday, be in the lead all week, deal with that pressure every night, and step up to the plate and shoot a 65 means the world to me", said Snedeker, who won his first PGA Tour title at this event in 2007.

The 52-year-old Bradley had five birdies and a bogey in the rain-delayed round to reach 11-under 133 at En-Joie Golf Club.

"It's definitely a different feeling", Mitchell said. Players who wind up 126th to 200th in the FedEx Cup standings can join the top-75 players from the PGA Tour's Web.com developmental tour as they close out the season battling for 25 cards.

The other subplot at Sedgefield was the last chance to finish in the top 125 and get into the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Bill Haas, who at No. 150 is in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time, made the cut at 3 under.
