Even Jordan Spieth struggled as he just opened with ‘3-over 73’. Spieth just registered two ‘top-10 finishes out of the 18 events this year’. He was only 3-under through the 12 holes to make for the 2-double bogeys and 2-bogeys.
These two incidents showed Snedeker might have struggled in the beginning to come in the form in 2020, but his fine start in the Vivint Houston Open and previously the Memorial Park Municipal Golf Course in the Texas area. He is also one out of the 37 players who are set to play at the ‘Augusta National’ too.
Brandt Snedeker said, “Drove the match great.” He further stated, “You need to be in the fairway along this golf course to stay here. It’s going to give you a tough competition, and you will be staying here for a long day.” Snedeker also stated, “Did some great job by making some putts and the par-5s. I just birdied all the par-5 out there. Even this golf course is tough, so one needs to benefit from the scoring holes. I am satisfied with the great job done on the course.”
Moreover, the tournament is the big one also as the PGA Tour is all set to start, and the ticketing sale will just be limited to 2,000 per day. It will also be the first domestic PGA tour that will have the fans after the lockdown of March 12, 2020. The golf players loved the arrival of fans as they stated that fans feed positive energy that gives a great push.
Even star golfer Snedeker said, “It’s always great to hear some claps and people excited for the birdies and good golfing shots.”
Although the Houston Open saw Spieth and Johnson struggle with their birdies, seeing fans in the tournament will give a great feeling to the star golfers. Eventually, the success will be seen on the upcoming leader boards.
