Snedeker starting to pull away

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Jimmy Walker, Chris Kirk, James Hahn, et al, now know how Brandt Snedeker felt the last two weeks.

Snedeker is taking a page from Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson -- the men who relegated him to second at the last two PGA TOUR events -- and pulling away from the competition early on the back nine at Pebble Beach.

Snedeker just has poured in birdie putts of 27 and 17 feet on Nos. 10 and 11 to open a four-stroke advantage on the field at 18 under. Jimmy Walker, who has birdied six of his last eight holes, and Chris Kirk, who is 3 under through 12, are tied for second.
