Snedeker, who actually tied with Ohio State's Zach Doran for medalist honors, entered the final round in a tie for second place after firing an opening-round four-under-par score of 68. He then came out on fire in the final round, carding a five-under-par score of 67 to finish the tournament at nine-under-par with a two-round score of 135. The tie for first-place could not be broken in a playoff because of the cancellation of the third round.
Snedeker, who moved up to No. 5 in this week's Golfweek/Sagarin poll, has now recorded below-par scores in seven of eight rounds this season and has been in the 60s in six of those eight rounds.
The Commodores, who moved up to No. 5 in this week's Golfweek/Sagarin team poll, finished Monday's first round in a tie for sixth place with a two-under-par score of 286. Vanderbilt then came back with another solid second round, posting a team score of one-under-par 287. The Commodores finished just two shots out of fourth place and only nine shots out of the top spot.
Other Commodore finishers included senior Craig Dunlap (T38, 146), sophomore Lance Goodson (T42, 147), sophomore Ben McClung (T47, 148) and sophomore Mark Donnell (58, 151).
The Vanderbilt men's golf team is back in action Monday and Tuesday at the Tennessee Tournament of Champions in Knoxville, Tenn.
