PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Brandt Snedeker has just made back-to-back birdies to open a three-stroke advantage during Sunday's final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Snedeker said Saturday evening that playing the par 5s well was key to mastering Pebble Beach -- and that's exactly what he's done so far. The Tennessean just two-putted for birdie from 20 feet at the sixth hole after making eagle on the second.
Snedeker then made a 16-footer for birdie at No. 7 to move to 17 under. Chris Kirk, playing in the penultimate group, is his nearest competitor after making an 8-footer at the fifth hole, his third birdie of the day.
Rookie James Hahn is hanging tough, as well, at 13 under. He's made two birdies and a bogey at the par-3 fifth and is 13 under.
