Snedeker wins Heritage; Westwood Regains OWGR Top Spot
Brandt Snedeker outlasted Luke Donald this weekend in a playoff to capture The Heritage title in impressive fashion. This would be Snedeker's second PGA Tour win and first since the 1007 Wyndham Championship his rookie season. He found himself in a playoff with Donald after firing a 64 on Sunday, which included a birdie on the 18th to tie for the lead. As PGA Tour correspondent Stan Awtrey writes, Snedeker has long awaited his chance at winning The Heritage:
"I said there are two jackets I wanted to earn in my lifetime, a Green Jacket and a plaid jacket," Snedeker said. "I've got one."
Luke Donald was playing for much more than another title on Tour this weekend, namely a chance to take over the #1 position in the Offical World Golf Rankings. Alas, his loss in the playoff forced him to currently settle for #3 in the rankings while fellow countryman Lee Westwood regained the top honor over Martin Kaymer.
