Brandt Snedeker Wins Again At Pebble Beach

Harry How/Getty Images(PEBBLE BEACH Calif.) -- Brandt Snedeker picked up his seventh victory of his TOUR career at the AT&T National Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday and clinched a Masters berth.

Snedeker finished five under in the final round for a total of 22 under for the weekend to hold off Nick Watney, who finished three shots back.

"I knew where my game was coming into here," Snedeker said.  "I don't think anybody else believed me or understood how good I thought I was playing."

Snedeker made 23 birdies and just one bogey this week and did the best he could on the course.

"Greens were very hard to read," Snedeker said.  "I did a great job of staying patient.  It was not by any means a picture perfect ground.  I made a lot of mistakes."

"I did a good job at putting the ball where you're supposed to," he continued.

Snedeker won last year at Pebble Beach as well and the victory moved him to No. 31 in the world, which should put him in all the World Golf Championship events.

Snedeker Wins Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Harry How/Getty Images(PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.) -- Brandt Snedeker is starting to put it all together.

Snedeker finished off a win at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday with a 7-under 65, shooting 19-under 267 to break the tournament record.

"Just hard to put into words, to have a stretch of golf like I had the last couple of months," Snedeker said after the win. "Something you dream about. Something you think that you can do, but you don't really know until you actually put it together. And I have."

Snedeker won the Tour Championship at the end of last season, played in the Ryder Cup and now owns the No. 4 ranking in the world.

The 32 year-old now has six finishes in the top three out of his last nine tournaments. "I definitely didn't want to do anything but win today," he said. "I was out there for one purpose and one purpose only, and I was extremely focused all day."

Tiger Woods Falls Short Again

(PEBBLE BEACH, CA) -- Tiger Woods went into Sunday four strokes off the lead and in third place during the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He finished the day in fifteenth place, 11 shots behind eventual winner Phil Mickelson.

Despite the poor finish, Tiger was fairly optimistic about his round.

"I didn't hit the ball that bad," Woods said. "But I made nothing today. As you saw, I don't know how many three putts I had, but I had a lot. I also missed my share of putts I hit in there close.

The loss comes on the heals of his performance at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship two weeks ago. In that tournament, Tiger went into the final round with the lead, but ultimately fell short to the relatively unknown Robert Rock.

Tiger will have a couple weeks to get his game together before he likely plays in the Accenture Match Play Championship. An event he has won three times.

Phil Mickelson Wins At Pebble Beach

WILLIAM WEST/AFP/Getty Images(PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.) -- Phil Mickelson went from being down six shots entering the final round at Pebble Beach to a two-shot lead in just six holes, and closed by going 8-under 64 for a two-shot win over Charlie Wi.

"To put it together this week and especially the final round, it feels terrific," said Mickelson who won for the fourth time at Pebble Beach.  "It gives me a lot of confidence but also inspires me because I believe now even more so that what I am doing in correct and that I am able to play some of my best golf."

With the win, Mickelson became only the ninth player in PGA Tour history with 40 wins.

Tiger Woods finished tied for 15th and has now failed to win a PGA tournament in his last 23 chances. 

"It was frustrating, as good as I felt on the greens yesterday was as bad as I felt today," said Woods.  "I could not get comfortable where I could see my lines.  I couldn't get my putter to swing; I just did not get comfortable."

It was the third straight week on tour that the winner started the final round at least six shots behind a 54-hole leader going after his first tour victory.

Tiger is in the Hunt

Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via Getty Images(PEBBLE BEACH, CA) -- The Tiger is lurking.

Going into the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-AM, Tiger Woods is four shots back of Charlie Wi.

Tiger shot a 5-under-par 67 while Wi shot a 3-under-par 69.

"He was playing well," Woods said. "He got off to a good start. I think he was like one under after two or three holes. He kept building on that round, and I needed to at least close the gap so I'm within touch tomorrow. I figured I had to shoot a good one today."

Woods is paired with Phil Mickelson tommorrow, and they will be the second to last group to tee off.

Woods Is Ready for Pebble Beach

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.) -- Tiger Woods will make his 2012 PGA Tour debut this week at Pebble Beach. 

He tied for third two weeks ago in Abu Dhabi, finishing with a poor final round, but Woods says he is happy with where he is at right now.

"I feel very at peace where I am at, I had to make some changes, that took time," said Woods at Pebble Beach.  "I'm starting to see the results of that.  The last four events I really played well, I'm just building on that."

Woods had an opportunity to close out Robert Rock in Abu Dhabi but instead let the win slip away.

He has gone 26 tournaments dating to November 2009 without winning an official event, but he does admit age is catching up with him.

"I don't recover quite as well.  I know that I'm sore quite often when I'm playing with my kids," said Woods on Tuesday.  "I do get sore."

Woods will play with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in the pro-am format that requires each team to play at Pebble Beach over the first three rounds.

"He's been calling me quite a bit, sending me video of his golf swing, 'What can I do, what can I do,' " Woods said. "He's competitive and he's been grinding hard. It's been cool to see."
