Brandt Snedeker is one of the best golfers in the world.
All you have to do is look at the 2013 PGA tour leaders to know that he is a formidable presence. He already has four top 10 finishes and one victory as the calendar moves into March.
Snedeker served notice earlier this year when he had back-to-back second-place finishes behind Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines and Phil Mickelson at Phoenix before winning the following week at Pebble Beach.
He became the first PGA golfer to record back-to-back runner-up finishes prior to winning a championship in 23 years.
Prior to his win at Pebble, Snedeker both lauded his game and criticized it.
"I'm playing great right now," he told the Detroit News. "I'm as high as I've ever been in the world ranking and that kind of stuff, but you have to win tournaments to validate that. I haven't done it."
Snedeker has shown he knows how to contend and that he can win important tournaments.
But there are changes that he needs to make in order to come home with his first major in 2013.
