Brandt Snedeker is looking forward to a new start in 2018.
The 37-year-old struggled with injury throughout the year and played in just 15 events. After a T-9 showing at the U.S. Open in June, Snedeker withdrew from the British Open and PGA Championship due to a lingering sternum injury. His last start for the 2016-17 season was a T-14 at the Travelers Championship in June.
He was reportedly pain-free during his November return at the RSM Classic, but withdrew from last week’s Indonesian Masters midway through the second round due to heat exhaustion.
A tough year for Snedeker was perhaps best summarized by this prayer from his 6-year-old daughter, which the veteran shared on Twitter Monday night.
Snedeker still made more than $1.6 million last season thanks to four top-10 finishes and just three missed cuts, but the entire family is clearly hoping for better luck in the health department come 2018.
