What's a guy got to do to get some respect?
Brandt Snedeker turned in one of the best bad-weather performances in recent memory at Torrey Pines, shooting a wind-swept 69 to capture the Farmers Insurance Open last week. It was Snedeker's eighth career PGA Tour victory, his seventh since 2011 (which is more than the likes of Jason Day and Dustin Johnson in that span). Along with a silver medal at the Sony Open and a third-place showing at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions -- plus a victory at the unofficial Franklin Templeton Shootout -- the Vanderbilt product is arguably the hottest golfer in the world.
So you think the good folks of Phoenix would give Snedeker the deference he deserves, right?
Wrong. For the 35-year-old was greeted with this illustration upon arrival at TPC Scottsdale:
Snedeker is one of the more humble, down-to-Earth guys on tour, and seems to be taking this in stride. Still, any worries that the hot streak facilitated a new narcissistic approach from Sneds should dissipate, because a photo like that will keep a man grounded.
