‘Sneds’ set the course alight at the recent Wyndham Championship, shooting that magical number of 59 before going on to win the event.

Now he’s keen to showcase that form when he hits Sydney for the November 15-18 championship which is the pinnacle of the Australasian season.

“I’ve always loved coming down to Australia and I’m really looking forward to spending some time in Sydney around the Open in November,” said Snedeker.

“I know how much all the Aussies put into trying to win the Stonehaven Cup and I know it has an incredible honour roll, so I’d love to try to get my name on it, too.”

This will be the second time Snedeker has played the Australian Open, he finished equal second, just one shot behind Craig Parry at the 2007 Open at The Australian.

Now ranked 50 in the world, 37-year-old Snedeker has been a fixture in the US tour’s playoffs for years having won at least once in six of the past eight years, including the 2012 Tour Championship when he was also FedEx Cup champion.
