Snedeker Climbs to No. 3 in Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings 10/23/02

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vanderbilt's Brandt Snedeker moved up to No. 3 in the nation in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin Poll, while the Commodores as a team moved to No. 12. Neither ranking reflects Vanderbilt's performance at the Tennessee Coca-Cola Tournament of Champions where Snedeker won his third consecutive tournament title and the Commodores finished tied for third place as a team.

In the three tournaments taken into consideration for this poll, Vanderbilt is 26-11 overall, 3-4 against Top-25 teams, 4-10 versus Top-50 teams and 20-11 against Top-100 teams.

Individually, Snedeker moved up from No. 6 to No. 3 after claiming his second consecutive tournament championship with a nine-under-par score of 135 at the rain-shortened Gary Koch Intercollegiate. This came on the heels of his tournament win with a 12-under-par score of 198 at the Mason Rudolph Championship at the Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn.

In the three tournaments taken into consideration for this poll, Snedeker is 216-1-1 overall, 1-0-1 versus Top-25 players, 10-1-1 against Top-50 players and 20-1-1 versus Top-100 competition.

Vanderbilt is back in action November 4-5 at The Prestige in Palm Springs, Calif.
