9. Brandt Snedeker
FedEx Points: 1,410
Brandt Snedeker has been sneaky good this season. What I mean by that is, you don’t see him atop the leaderboards that often, but he’s played some consistent golf this year, especially at the beginning of the season.
Sneds started off the season strong with four top 10s in his first six events of the season. After another top 20 finish at the Farmers Insurance Open, he picked up his 7th career PGA TOUR victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Snedeker has only found success in one of the three majors this season. He’s missed the cut at the Masters, finished in solo 8th at Chambers Bay, and missed the cut at The Open.’
Brandt’s also not rookie when it comes the the playoffs, making a run back in 2012 to win the FedEx Cup and a cool $10 million with his win at the Tour Championship.
Here he is on his win at the TOUR Championship and the FedExCup:
"“This is what you work your whole life for. I look at all the putts I’ve hit and all the shots I’ve hit all through my life, it’s just unbelievable the ability to stay calm today. It just came through. I was so calm last night, I couldn’t believe it. Just, I’m very rarely speechless, but this is about as close as I get to speechless.”"
Ranking in 14th for the President’s Cup, he too will need a strong finish to the season. He’s played in one previous President’s Cup back in 2013. He was ranked 2nd in FedEx points and helped the United States picked up the win at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
