Seems as though Brandt Snedeker was tired of finishing second place.

Snedeker fired a 7-under 65 on Sunday to clear Chris Kirk by two shots to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, lifting the trophy after back-to-back second-place finishes the past two weeks.

The defending FedEx Cup champion missed only one fairway on the day, while also hitting 15 of 18 greens in regulation.

Snedeker now has two wins, three seconds and a third over his past nine PGA Tour events.

Here's how it all unfolded on Sunday at Pebble Beach Golf Links:

And that might be game, set and match as Brandt Snedeker buries his birdie putt to move to 19 under and has a three-shot lead heading to the par-5 18th. Snedeker is 7 under on the day, with an eagle, six birdies and a single bogey.

For the second consecutive hole, Brandt Snedeker leaves his birdie putt short and has 2 feet to save his par. He makes it to stay at 18 under, nursing a two-shot lead with two holes to play.

• • •

Update #42: 5:09 p.m. EST

All good things must come to an end, right? Brandt Snedeker uses less-than-driver on the par-4 15th and it runs just off the fairway on the left. He is 11-for-12 today.

• • •

Update #42: 5:09 p.m. EST

Snedeker gives his 18-footer a nice rap, but misses low and he settles for a par at the par-5 14th hole and retains his two-shot lead over Chris Kirk.

• • •

Update #41: 5:01 p.m. EST

Snedeker has to lay up with his second shot at the par-5 14th, leaving himself about 100 yards into the green. He actually might need a birdie here, as Kirk is coming on strong.

Update #31: 3:58 p.m. EST:

Snedeker is now 8-for-10 in greens in regulation after putting his approach about 25 feet left of the pin at No. 10. It'll be another slippery putt for the leader.

There is a six-way tie for second after Robert Garrigus picked up his fifth birdie of the day to move to 13 under, joining James Hahn, Kevin Stadler, Fredrik Jacobson and Jimmy Walker three shots off Snedeker's lead. Chris Kirk is also in this group after a three-putt bogey at No. 10.

• • •

Update #29: 3:52 p.m. EST:

After watching Hahn boom a drive down the middle, Snedeker does the same at the par-4 10th hole. He is 8-for-8 on fairways hit today.

• • •

Update #28: 3:46 p.m. EST:

Snedeker puts a bit too much mustard on his birdie putt and it runs about 12 feet past the hole at No. 9, and he misses the comebacker to make the turn with a 4-under 32 and a two-shot lead over Chris Kirk.

• • •

Update #27: 3:38 p.m. EST:

Snedeker makes it 7 of 9 greens hit in regulation with a nice approach left of the hole on No. 9. Snedeker also hit 7 of 7 fairways on his front nine.

Update #25: 3:34 p.m. EST:

Chris Kirk drops a shot at the par-4 9th after hitting into a greenside bunker on a long second shot. He falls back to 14 under and hands Snedeker a three-shot lead. It was Kirk's first bogey of the day.

• • •

Update #24: 3:30 p.m. EST:

Another fairway hit for Snedeker at the monster par-4 9th hole, sliding it up the right side. Definitely a hole where he needs to be conservative.

• • •

Update #23: 3:25 p.m. EST:

Snedeker plays a great chip shot out of the rough and leaves himself about 3 feet to save par. He does make the putt and stays at 17 under, two clear of Chris Kirk and three ahead of James Hahn.

• • •

Update #22: 3:20 p.m. EST:

• • •

Update #16: 2:30 p.m. EST:

Hahn plays a poor second shot, pushing it about 12 feet past the hole and he'll putt from the fringe to try and save par. But he misses that putt and picks up a bogey and now trails Brandt Snedeker by two shots, who two-putts the 5th green for a simple par to stay at 15 under.

• • •

Update #15: 2:24 p.m. EST:

Playing the dangerous par-3 5th hole (you go right, and you're dead), Snedeker plays it safe and goes left of the hole and to the back of the green. But he'll be putting. Meanwhile, Hahn plays it too safe and pulls it a bit left and into a greenside bunker. Safe, but now must get up-and-down.

• • •

Update #14: 2:18 p.m. EST:

Chris Kirk wastes a golden opportunity at the par-3 5th hole after an aggressive play off the tee, missing a 10-footer for birdie and remains at 13 under, two back of Snedeker.

• • •

Update #12: 2:08 p.m. EST:

Both Hahn and Snedeker split the fairway at the par-4 4th hole. Hahn's approach nearly finds the rough, but it spins back hard and he'll have about 10 feet for a birdie from under the hole. Snedeker is also under the hole, about 8 feet from the cup.

• • •

Update #11: 1:53 p.m. EST:

James Hahn wastes an opportunity on the par-4 3rd hole, pushing his 5-footer for birdie to the right of the cup and he remains one back of Brandt Snedeker, who gets up-and-down from the greenside rough to stay at 14 under.

• • •

Update #10: 1:50 p.m. EST:

James Hahn has the advantage on the 3rd green, spinning his approach back to pin-high and about 5 feet left of the hole. Snedeker overcooks his approach from just under 125 yards at the par-4 and will be chipping from just off the back of the green.

Meanwhile, 18-hole leader Hunter Mahan is 4 under through his first six holes to leap up to 10 under overall.

• • •

Update #7: 1:31 p.m. EST:

After a long wait in the fairway - the amateurs are still in the field, which will create a logjam all day long - Brandt Snedeker hits a beautiful second shot into the 2nd green and will have 4 feet for eagle. James Hahn nearly matches Snedeker with his second shot, leaving himself about 8 feet.

• • •

Update #6: 1:29 p.m. EST:

Chris Kirk makes a 3-footer for birdie at the par-5 2nd hole to jump into a tie for the lead.

• • •

Update #5: 1:17 p.m. EST:

Big back up on No. 2 tee. Chris Kirk and Patrick Reed just teed off in the second-to-last group. Snedeker and Hahn will have a little bit of a wait. Ted Potter, Jr. is heading to the top of the leaderboard again. Potter is 3 under through five, and is at 10 under total; only two shots back.

• • •

Update #4: 1:10 p.m. EST:

James Hahn blocked his tee shot off the tee, but came up with a good iron shot from the rough. Although he left his birdie putt short, his par recovery is a solid start for him. Hahn is looking to capture his first PGA Tour title. Snedeker, who had an even better look at birdie on No. 1 with a 15-footer, could not convert either. The co-leaders leave the first with pars.

• • •

Update #3: 1 p.m. EST:

Justin Hicks is 3 under through seven. His best finish this season came at the season opener, the Sony Open in Hawaii (T15). Hicks is currently T11 and four strokes back of the leaders.

He is looking to gain his second top 10 of the season and his first victory on the PGA Tour.

• • •

Update #2: 12:40 p.m. EST:

In the Pro-Am, first-year professional Jordan Spieth and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo led after Round 3, and are now currently tied for the lead with Chez Reavie Brian Swette, who is the director of Shutterfly, Jamba and Burger King Holdings. Reavie / Swette are 4 under on the day through seven holes.

• • •

Update #1: 12:30 p.m. EST:

And they're underway out in California. The last two groups are just about to tee off. Making moves early are Billy Horschel and Kevin Na, who are both 2 under for the day and 8 under for the tournament, four shots back of the leaders. It's early. . . Anything can happen.
