Snedeker rides opening-round 59 to second Wyndham win

Brandt Snedeker couldn't block out the buzz that surrounded his first-round 11-under 59 at the Wyndham Championship.

Snedeker will carry a three-shot lead into the final day of the tournament, but he'll have plenty of work left to do Sunday. I still got a lot of great golf in me and I'm excited about the FedEx Cup Playoffs. All three were tied for the lead, until Snedeker produced a critical chip from a bad lie on the 15 to get within three feet and make the putt for birdie.

He closed with a 65 for a three-stroke victory in the regular-season finale, breaking a tie with C.T. Pan on the final hole with a birdie and Pan's double bogey in the group ahead.

"I got so excited, goosebumps. jumping around like I won the golf tournament and it's Thursday morning", Snedeker said.

Snedeker called the Wyndham Championship, "the most stressful week I've ever had", but the pressure was of his own doing. "So it's emotional after opening with a 59, and to have my family here to share in it". He had the tour's first 59 of the year during the first round.

Rumors suggest that the DVR is now being developed at Amazon's Lab 126 R&D center, and we'll probably see a whole lot more, soon. The concept reportedly allows for transmitting the video stream wirelessly to smartphones.

"It's my fault", said Pan, who's from Taiwan. He added two more birdies on the fifth and eighth holes to make the turn at three-under for the round.

BOTH PADRAIG HARRINGTON and Shane Lowry have lost their US PGA Tour cards after disappointing second rounds saw the pair fail to make the cut at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro.

Moments later, it was a three-way tie when Snedeker three-putted on No. 13.

"Then on the back nine, which typically is the harder nine here, I finally hit the ball in the fairway off the tee and hit some quality iron shots and had a few holes where I missed some makeable putts".

"Basically, I know this is possibly my last event of the year, so I haven't been grinding really hard", Points said.

Bradley, the second-round leader, bogeyed the par-4 15th in a 68.

Jim Furyk (63) and D.A. Points (67) finished four shots behind Snedeker, while Ryan Moore (67) and Brian Gay (69) were a stroke further back.

Six players are tied for fourth on nine-under, including Sergio Garcia. Snedeker was 2-under for the third round, but even across the 11 holes played in the morning.

Points, a three-time PGA Tour victor, who missed 15 of 16 cuts before tying for 40th at the Barbasol Championship in July, said he'd benefitted from a new set of irons - and from playing without any expectation of making it to the FedEx Cup playoffs coming up.

Canadian Nick Taylor, Harris English and Sam Saunders were among the golfers to do enough to qualify for next week's FedExCup playoffs by winding up in the top 125 in the points standings.
