Brandt Snedeker finished at -7 Thursday.
It is enough, for now, to put him tied for first place after his first round of the Farmers Insurance Open.
Taking a look at his scorecard, provided by PGAtour.com, he demonstrated the ability to sink his birdie puts when he had the opportunity, and did not record a bogey all day. He played the course like a true professional.
It was a very good day indeed. Something to keep in mind is that he started on the back nine, and therefore started his day right and finished strong. It is a great way to become, and stay, relevant throughout a round.
There are plenty of players behind him who are gunning for him, and have many holes still to play. He may not be able to keep the number one spot, but he will surely be near the top at the start of Friday.
