Bridgestone Helps Make Snedeker and Tartan Jacket the Perfect Fit
2007 Rookie of the Year Records Second PGA TOUR Win with B330-S Golf Ball
COVINGTON, GA — In Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Bridgestone
Tour Team member Brandt Snedeker ensured Easter
2011 would be one he'd never forget, firing a tournament low 7-under par 64 to earn
his way into a playoff for The Heritage. In his second career PGA TOUR victory,
Snedeker made a title-clinching par on the 3rd hole of the sudden death
playoff to secure the victory and vault him into 7th place in the 2011 FedExCup
"With 5 Top 10's this year, Brandt has been one of the hottest players on TOUR over
the last few weeks, so we had a feeling that it was only a matter of time until
he would be hoisting the second PGA TOUR trophy of his career," said Dan Murphy,
Vice President of Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "We're excited that the
B330-S helped Brandt stand up to the tough
test that is Harbour Town Golf Links. We were proud to see 'Sneds' don the Tartan
Jacket. There isn't a more deserving champion in golf."
Sneds' Significant Figures
- 1st in Birdies at 2011 Heritage
- T3 Driving Accuracy at 2011 Heritage
- T2 Putts Per GIR at 2011 Heritage
- T4 Putts Per Round at 2011 Heritage
- 7th in 2011 FedexCup Points Standings
- 2nd Time in Career Eclipsing $2 Million in Earnings for a Season

Snedeker relied on the incredible feel and consistency of the new Bridgestone Golf
TOUR B330-S golf ball in his march to victory,
compiling an array of impressive statistics throughout the course of the event.
On the incredibly tight Harbour Town Golf Links, Snedeker finished T3 in Driving
Accuracy and also managed T2 and T4 finishes in Putts per GIR and Putts Per Round,
respectively. In addition, Snedeker negotiated the demanding track with 21 birdies
for the week, the best of any competitor in the field.
