Final Wyndham Championship leaderboard 2018:
Wyndham Championship report
Brandt Snedeker held off a Sunday charge from Webb Simpson and C.T. Pan to win for the ninth time on the PGA Tour at the Wyndham Championship.
The 37-year-old has struggled with injury over the past year, but he’s shown glimpses in recent months that he has been returning to form and it all came to a head this week at Sedgefield Country Club.
On Thursday, the American shot a stunning 59 – with an opening bogey – to enter the history books on the PGA Tour.
His lead gradually diminished over Friday and Saturday, but a final round 65 got the job done by a comfortable three shots in the end.
Snedeker’s only slip up came at the par-4 13th, where an uncharacteristic three-putt knocked the wind out of his sails – particularly as Pan had tied for the lead.
Pan – with his wife on the bag – came to the 18th tee level with Snedeker but he sliced his drive wildly out of bounds on the way to a double-bogey finish.
And so Snedeker – who won this championship before it came to Sedgefield Country Club in 2007 – had a comfortable walk up to the final green where he would finish things off in style; a right-to-left breaking 20-footer down the hill for a closing birdie.
