Leaderboard update: Cink climbing

No one has been able to catch J.J. Henry. Stewart Cink and Brandt Snedeker are hoping to change that.

Cink and Snedeker are both 4 under through 12 and 11 holes, respectively, and, at least for the moment, have the best chance to catch Henry.

It’s been a pretty quiet couple of seasons for Cink since he won the 2009 British Open. Can he turn it around this week the way Adam Scott did last year?

Since hoisting the Claret Jug, Cink has just three top-10s -- all of which came last year. In eight starts this year, Cink has just three top-25s -- the best of which was a tie for 11th at the Transitions Championship.

Snedeker, on the other hand, has played well of late. He tied for 15th last week at the Masters and was fourth at the Transitions Championship, where he recorded a second-round 64. He also had top-10s in San Diego and Phoenix earlier this year.
