Infographic: Brandt Snedeker crushed the field in basically everything at Pebble Beach

February 16, 2015

It was hardly the most thrilling contest, but Brandt Snedeker put on a clinic at Pebble Beach that was probably worthy of more than a three-stroke victory -- and in fact would have been, were it not for two late birdies from Nick Watney.

Snedeker, whose winless 2014 season prompted a switch to swing coach Butch Harmon, won making just one bogey all week. Only four other players in the last decade have equaled or bettered that feat.

How did he do it? His $20 equipment aside, Snedeker didn't drive the ball particularly well, but he hit more than 80 percent of his greens -- an uptick of about 13 percent from his season average. And he didn't find himself in too much trouble when he missed the green, either: Snedeker led the field in scrambling, getting up-and-down 92 percent of the time, some 30 percent higher than the field average.
