Brandt Snedeker Didn't Miss a 3-Foot Putt The Entire PGA Tour Season


ABOVE: There was a lot of this in 2018-19.

BRANDT SNEDEKER IS A VERY GOOD PUTTER.

This is not a new idea for many of us who have followed the PGA Tour through the years. But this stat, reported by GolfDigest.com, is startling nonetheless. Especially for amateurs who are known to tremble over those short putts.

Snedeker made every 3-foot putt during the 2018-19 season on the PGA Tour. He converted 834 of 834.

Yes, his name is on his bag. But this still impresses me. You know there had to be some tricky ones among those 800-plus short putts. And yet "Sneds" was perfect.

This isn't new. Snedeker's is "the fifth-highest total this decade for players who finished a season 100 percent from that distance." The others are Greg Chalmers (2019), Gary Woodland (2013), Daniel Summerhays (2015) and Beau Hossler (2018).
