Snedeker Scorching Tour

In just a few short weeks, the PGA has already had a number of great story lines.
Anytime Tiger wins, it's obviously news. And then Phil Mickelson turned in one of the more impressive four-round efforts in recent memory at the Phoenix Open.
But lost in that mix was Brandt Snedeker, who might be the best story of all so far this season.
Snedeker, last year's FedEx Cup champion, is red-hot and finally got a win to show for it this weekend at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am when he topped Chris Kirk by two strokes.
Snedeker finished runner-up to Tiger at Torrey Pines two weeks ago and was the runner-up in Phoenix when Mickelson went off. But in five starts this season, Snedeker has a victory, his pair of second place finishes and a one third place showing.
While Snedeker isn't exactly a new name — he was Rookie of the Year in 2007 — he should be included in conversations about today's top golfers.
He's on fire right now, earning six top three finishes in his last nine outings dating back to next year. And there's no reason to think that momentum is going to stop anytime soon.
