LA QUINTA, Calif. -- Brandt Snedeker certainly didn't let the two-hour break between rounds at the Humana Challenge bother him.
The Huck Finn lookalike is tied for the lead with Mark Wilson at 20 under after making birdie on two of his first five holes in the final round. Snedeker made a 9-footer at the par-5 second and has just rolled in a 12-footer at the fifth.
Snedeker, who is playing for the first time since hip surgery last fall, had to have gained confidence from the way he finished the wind-delayed third round. He went back to La Quinta Sunday morning and birdied his last five holes -- and the final six in all.
