Snedeker to miss another week with rib injury

Brandt Snedeker is skipping another World Golf Championship to

make sure his sore ribs are ready for the Masters.

Snedeker hasn’t played since he won the Pebble Beach National

Pro-Am, when he noticed soreness in his left ribs.

The No. 4 player in the world decided to withdraw from the Match

Play Championship as a precaution. He planned to return to the

Cadillac Championship next week at Doral. But Snedeker said Friday

his ribs remain tender and he wants to make sure he’s prepared for

Bay Hill and the Masters.

Snedeker has broken par in 33 out of his last 37 rounds, and he

had 10 straight rounds in the 60s when he finished up at Pebble

Beach.

He would not be replaced in the field next week at Doral.
