Snedeker Delivers World-Class BOOM at Pebble!
Golf's Hottest Player Notches His First Win of 2013 With Bridgestone Gear
COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Tour Team member Brandt Snedeker, the hottest
player in golf over the past six months, treated golf fans to another world-class
performance this week at the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Sneds used a final
round 65 to command a two-shot victory and vault himself into a career high
4th place in the Official World Golf Rankings. Snedeker tamed the trio
of famed courses (Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass
Hill) in a tournament record 19-under par, recording rounds of 66-68-68-65. In a
remarkable display of consistency, Snedeker has recorded scores in the 60's in 16
of his last 17 rounds played and has recorded 4 top 3 finishes in his 5 starts this
season. Snedeker's win at Pebble marks the fifth PGA TOUR title of his career, and
extends his early lead in the 2013 FedEx Cup point standings.
In his victory, Snedeker relied on Bridgestone's TOUR B330 golf ball,
J40 Cavity Back Irons and J40 Black Oxide Wedges.

Extending his blazing start to the season - including two consecutive runner-up
finishes - Snedeker relied on the consistency and spin performance of the
and the precision shot-making of the J40 Cavity Back irons
to get off to a hot early
start on Sunday - negotiating the opening 7 holes of his final round in 5-under
"I am really confident in my equipment. The reliable performance of the B330 balls
and the feel of the
J40 irons lets me execute shots
successfully in a variety of conditions," said Snedeker.
"Sneds has been a member of the Bridgestone tour team since our brand's U.S. introduction
in 2005, and it has been just incredible to follow his ascension to the ranks of
the game's elite over the past couple seasons," said Dan Murphy, Vice President
of Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "We're excited for Sneds and his family and,
like the rest of the golf world, we can't wait to see what's next."
