Brandt Snedeker Wins the RBC Canadian Open, Chalk Up Another Victory For Sneeeeeedeker!

There seem to have been an absolute bevy of hilarious golf commercials of late, including Rickie Fowler’s ESPN Sportscenter commercial, Rory vs Jeff the sassy pants talking robot, and of course Bridgestone’s “compression” commercial…..ah, all great stuff.  But, the Mastercard TPC Sawgrass commercial might just take the cake of ultimate hilarity.  You know, the Brandt “Sneeeeeeedeker” commercial.  Classic.

Anytime I see that commercial, my tongue seems to slip into some sort of Canadian dialect for the subsequent few sentences.  You know what I mean, eh?  So, it only seems perfectly fitting that Sneds won the RBC Canadian Open on Sunday.

The victory was Sneds’ second of the PGA Tour season, and his fifth top 3.  Save for a second round 79 where he seemingly forgot how to putt for about 10 holes, his British Open finish (t-11th) would’ve possibly scared Lefty and crew as well.

Following Sneds’ win, we now have quite the race for the PGA Tour Player of the Year Award- Tiger with 4 victories including the PLAYERS (illegal cheating free drop and all), Phil with two victories including the British Open, Kuchar with two big time victories (WGC Match Play and the Memorial) and now Sneds.

So, this is definitely an intriguing question- with the PGA Championship just two weeks away, from Tiger, Lefty, Kuch and Sneds, who ya taking?  My money might just be on Sneds the way he’s rolling the nugget at the moment.  It’s definitely going to be a bangin’ finish to the PGA Tour season.
