The Outlook

Sneds had some nice showings of late, getting into the top 10 at both the Canadian Open and Greenbrier Classic. Those are encouraging signs, although I’m still worried about his high-level upside at a major like this which requires some distance off the tee. His Long-Term Driving Distance ranks 112th in the field, and that’s just so hard to overcome at a course like Bellerive against the Dustin Johnsons and Rory McIlroys of the world.
